“In our evolving enterprise IT work environments, teamwork, adaptation and peak performance are traits that are essential for not just individual success but also for the success of our teams and organizations,” said SHARE President and CEO Justin Bastin. “Hearing Robyn Benincasa’s perspectives on managing adversity, derived from her outstanding achievements, will inspire the SHARE community to seek out innovative new solutions to their challenges and perform at a higher level which will provide a higher ROI for those companies sending their most valued asset people to our conference.”

Benincasa’s presentation will be followed by the opportunity to attend 500+ technical sessions and hands-on labs on enterprise IT hot topics such as Security, Cloud Technology in the Enterprise, Data Privacy, Zowe & Open Source, API Economy and IBM Z. The full SHARE Pittsburgh technical agenda will be available in mid-May 2019.
