Get More Out Of Your Business

In the face of volatility and uncertainty, it’s time to rethink our approach to strategy and transformation. What if you could simulate what this looks like before going through the lonely struggles, doubts, and choices real life challenges could pose on the path to success?

Sandbox Centre, in partnership with the Georgian Angel Network, is excited to host the Transform! three day program this October 13th, 16th, 17th for companies looking to grow the mindset, skills, and strategy needed to deal with industry shifts, new business models, and successfully transform.


1. Window dressing versus real lasting change
2. Organizational inertia
3. Product focused vision
4. Fear of cannibalization
5. Entrenched systems
6. Thinking too small
7. Disruption to business continuity and efficiency
8. Transformational fatigue – lots of half-hearted efforts
