The 7×24 Exchange will hold its annual fall conference from Oct. 15-18 at the JW Marriott Desert Ridge resort in Phoenix, Arizona. This conference is designed for anyone involved with 7×24 infrastructures – IT, data center, disaster recovery and network/ telecommunication managers, computer technologists, facility or building managers, supervisors and engineers.

In this year’s keynote, innovation expert Robbie Bach shares proven business and leadership principles from his journey as former Chief Xbox Officer with Microsoft. Bach’s insights will help you drive change and position your organization as a disruptor before someone else “Ubers” you.

From garage-shop inception to ultimate business success, Bach led the successful creation and development of the industry-revolutionizing and iconic Xbox video game business. During his illustrious 22-year career at Microsoft, including as president of entertainment & devices and chief Xbox officer, Robbie was responsible for creating new and branded consumer entertainment experiences across music, gaming, video and mobile communications.

In his dynamic and inspiring presentation, Robbie will provide the 7×24 Exchange attendees with tips for applying his 3P Framework, a proven model for clear strategic guidance that includes identifying clear purpose, principles and priorities to guide success. Drawing on lessons learned and shared in his best-seller, “Xbox Revisited: A Game Plan for Corporate and Civic Renewal,” he delivers simple yet effective insights on strategy, innovation, leadership and people management to help business audiences address and overcome the challenges of today’s fast-paced marketplace.

Formed in 1989, 7×24 Exchange is the leading knowledge exchange for those who design, build, use and maintain mission-critical enterprise information infrastructures, aiming to improve end-to-end reliability by promoting dialogue among these groups. Founded on the belief that most professionals involved with End-to-End information infrastructures work in isolation when dealing with technical, budget, political, and career issues, 7×24 Exchange creates communications vehicles designed to promote dialogue among these groups and to advance the state-of-the-art in infrastructure reliability.

In keeping with its founding assumptions and mission 7×24 Exchange believes new approaches, products, ideas, solutions and techniques related to improving End-to-End reliability emanate from varied functions, vendors, consultants and user/operators in structured and unstructured exchanges. As such, 7×24 Exchange Conferences include a broad variety of topics that impact End-to-End reliability in formal and informal settings. The content and structure of 7×24 Exchange Conferences are designed to encourage and facilitate such valuable dialogue and idea exchanges.
