The luncheon session is set for 11:30 AM on Oct. 4 at the Adam’s Mark Hotel.

Burgum will discuss “how technology enables organizations to succeed in today’s constantly evolving workplace by amplifying the impact of their people, and the relationship between business process automation and personal productivity,” the Chamber said.
