The presentation, Disruption is Opportunity, was part of a 3 day virtual event presented by the Chartered Professionals in Human Resources of Canada.  Called the HR Virtual Forum Series - Empowering Your People in a Post-Pandemic Workplace, the presentation was originally presented live on May 27, 2020. 

Today, we are undergoing a paradigm shift. The world has not only become more dynamic and intertwined, but unpredictable. We are now looking for organizations to be fearless in a changing world. Shawn Kanungo provides a bold, unique, and contrarian view of the near future. He outlines some of the disruptive trends that are impacting every industry, and then explores how organizations can become more adaptable, experimental, and collaborative. Weaving together storytelling, humour, inspiration, and actionable takeaways, audiences will walk away with a roadmap on how organizations can create a brighter future, together.


  • Dive deeper into the societal, economic, and technological trends shaping the future of organizations.
  • Explore how the leading companies are becoming more nimble, flexible, and adaptable.
  • Showcase how organizations can develop their own “Innovation Capital”. And, how they can experiment with new technologies, business models, and new customer experiences.

Shawn Kanungo has also made available two deep dive videos. (Please note these videos do not include any CPD hours):

  • Navigating Uncertainty
  • Experimenting With Automation, and Why HR Should Be Leading It  

The two deep dive videos will follow immediately after his session presentation.
