Morris Morrison

Disrupt Yourself: Driving Change on Purpose
Keynote & Cocktail Reception | Wednesday, June 5, 2024, 4:45 PM-6:30 PM ET

A world-class entertainer, futurist, author, and entrepreneur (as well as a volunteer, husband, and father), Morris Morrison of Windmill Park Media empowers his audience to drive change and own results across every aspect of their business. Orphaned first as a child and then as a teen, Morris overcame both personal tragedy and several odds to graduate from Fairmont State University and the John Chambers College of Business and Economics at West Virginia University. He applied the knowledge he gained there to embark on his own bold path of entrepreneurship.
In his book, “Disrupt Yourself: Choosing Courage Over Comfort, On Purpose,” Morris invites you to choose intentional, daring disruption over comfortable routine and to overcome both personal and professional obstacles—just as he has throughout his career.

Thursday, June 6, 2024, 11:30 AM-12:15 PM ET

When supply chains become sustainable, both businesses and consumers win. But achieving a circular economy lies beyond the scope of any one technology, policy, or industry—it demands a resilient ecosystem that promotes collaboration across sectors. In this panel session, we’ll explore powerful case studies driving the shift toward a more sustainable supply chain. You’ll hear from global business leaders that are achieving sustainable growth, powering consumer confidence, and leading the way for progress and innovation.
