Disruption happens. A technology breakthrough. A shift in consumer demand. A rise, or fall, in a critical market. Any of these can rewrite the future of a company–or a whole industry. If you haven't faced this moment, you will soon. It's time to change the way you run your business. Now what? How you decide to respond is what separates the leaders from the left behind. Today's smartest executives know that disruption is constant and inevitable. They've learned to absorb the shockwave that change brings, and can use that energy to transform their companies and their careers.

At the second WIRED Business Conference, presented in partnership with MDC Partners, you'll hear from industry leaders on how to respond to change, and how to use it to your advantage. Through one-on-one conversations between speakers and Wired editors and interaction with the speakers, you'll see how disruption is transforming the way smart organizations make decisions, keeping them on a steady path to growth.

This year's speakers include:
Chris Anderson, Editor-In-Chief, WIRED
William J. Bratton, Chairman, Altegrity Risk International; Former Commissioner, NYPD and Chief, LAPD
Steve Case, Chairman and CEO, Revolution; Cofounder, America Online
Caterina Fake, Cofounder, Hunch
Mark Pincus, Founder and CEO, Zynga
Vivian Schiller, President and CEO, NPR
Fred Smith, Chairman, President, and CEO, FedEx Corporation
Howard Schultz, Chairman, President, and CEO, Starbucks
