Firms are usually resilient to change for the better or worse at times. Stellar leaders have often stood out against the odds and brought transformation through their sheer determination. These are the luminaries who venture into the unknown, galvanize organizations for the long haul and steer businesses out of trouble in today's dynamic environment. At the end of the day what matters is that whether you can adapt to the ever-changing environment or not and stay relevant in the 21st century. In line with this philosophy, the theme for Solaris'18 is "Resilience and Adaptability".
