EVOLVE is BDO Alliance USA’s annual conference for Alliance Members. We are thrilled to continue our tradition of hosting this event in Las Vegas and invite you to join us in 2024 at the Cosmopolitan! We have a fantastic program planned for you this spring. It will offer the latest in technical and practice management training, networking time with the best in the industry, and a collection of esteemed thought leaders.

This year, we will have an added focus on Navigating the Impacts of Accelerating Change. Embracing agility and resilience is required in today’s business environment to manage change and seize opportunities. The velocity at which things are changing has never been greater. To help navigate the impacts that such accelerating change is having on our firms, we will feature speakers, panel discussions, and interactive sessions that delve into topics such as disruptive technologies, trends, change management, and forward-thinking leadership.

Connect with peer leaders and industry luminaries on how we can best address the speed of change and its impact on all of us at EVOLVE 2024!

Conference Ends/Departures
Phil Hansen is an award-winning multimedia artist, and we are pleased to welcome him to EVOLVE! Success, especially in today’s fast-changing business environment, depends on our ability to make creativity and innovation a continuous process. Leaders want to know how their teams can rise above any challenge and succeed no matter what comes their way. The term “Embrace the Shake” is coined from his personal story of transformation. After developing a career-ending tremor in his drawing hand, Phil embraced his “shake” both physically and metaphorically by redefining his limitation as an impetus for creativity. Upon sharing his message on the TED stage and to millions of others subsequently after, “Embrace the Shake” has become a motto to approach limitations in a new way. Through jaw-dropping visuals and live interactive art, get ready to break preconceived assumptions, activate your creative capacity, and bring fresh ways of viewing the task at hand!
