    Vitaliy Katsenelson is the CEO of the investment management services company IMA and published author of several books, most notably the just released Soul In the Game: The Art of a Meaningful Life.

    We discuss how digitalization has been changing society, the value of Stoicism and the importance of aligning what you say with what you do, and Vitaliy spices up the discussion with a lot of fascinating stories and concrete examples from Soul In the Game.

    Cameron Van Orman is the Chief Strategy and Marketing Officer at Planview, a global leader in strategic portfolio management and enterprise agile planning.

    Agile has undergone quite a transformation in recent years, going from a purely IT function to now being implemented to some extend in a majority of industries and companies.
