“ MEETA Conference 2019:       Maintaining Perspective

The theme of this year’s conference is “Maintaining Perspective”.

We each have our own perspectives. They inform our thoughts, guide our actions, and influence the outcomes of those actions.

But our own perspectives are just that, (our own!) - while every day we must deal with complex problems involving multiple stakeholders and disciplines.
Fortunately, perspective is the currency of experience and expertise – we can have them, give them, receive them, share them, buy them, adopt or adapt them. 
It behoves us then, to assess our perspectives to ensure that we have the requisite understanding of our critical challenges to enable optimal solutions.             
Come and refresh your perspectives at the Meeta Conference. We have an excellent line-up of speakers, relevant and engaging topics, Q&A sessions, and a space for engineers, managers, consultants, academics, practitioners and vendors to interact and share perspectives.
