You’re creative and resourceful like you’ve never been before – in both big and small ways. Each time you solved a problem you never imagined facing, you discovered new and innovative solutions. We must bring this ingenuity forward. This year as we return in-person in Raleigh, NC, you'll hear how operations leaders like you addressed their current challenges with new ideas and technologies. Their stories, combined with our practical advice from decades of partnering with organizations just like yours, will give you the tools to address existing business and operational challenges and equip you to prepare for the future.

Lead through change

As the world moves forward, we must bring our creativity and ingenuity with us into the future. Your new skills – interpersonal, problem solving, digital literacy, and more – are the key to preparing for the uncertainties of tomorrow.

You have responsibilities – to increase efficiency, mitigate risk and future-proof your organization. It’s a big job. And the people you serve are depending on you.

At Dude University 2022, we want to celebrate your accomplishments, inspire your organization’s transformation and provide you with the practical knowledge you need to turn your plans into reality. .

I learn a lot from the other companies who are there. A lot of times, I find new ways to improve how I use [the product] or what it can do.
