“Change Crowdsourcing — beyond an illusion”: Albana VRIONI
Albana Vrioni explores how Change Crowdsourcing is realizing a shift in driving organizational and societal change.

As change adviser and facilitator, Albana assists business leaders manage strategic change from a holistic perspective. She is actively involved in promoting sustainable management strategies and practices. Her expertise evolves around IT enabled transformation, with successful projects delivered for European Institutions and National Administrations, medium and large internationals.

In a lyrical, confessional talk, Sting treats us to songs from his upcoming musical, and to an encore of “Message in a Bottle.”
