Learn how organizations are transforming by eliminating the structural silos that interfere with collaboration, data- and knowledge-sharing and re-imagining better ways to succeed.

Tessitura Network CEO Jack Rubin welcomed more than 1,800 attendees from 364 arts and cultural organizations to the 2017 Tessitura Learning and Community Conference in San Diego on Sunday, August 13, 2017 with this thought-provoking talk.

"I challenge you to re-think if there are new ways to deliver your mission and perhaps re-classify structure or operations. In other words, perhaps re-imagine how to win."
