  9. Gartner Guest Speaker sessions are central to the success of Gartner Events. In order to provide our attendees with a global platform for the exchange of ideas and insights, we invite key figures from various industries to share their personal perspectives concerning the challenges and opportunities facing businesses today.

We make it expressly clear- on the Events On Demand webpage, on Events Navigator and as part of the Events Online Registration process, that Guest Speaker views and opinions are entirely their own and in no way reflect the views and opinions of Gartner.
