Thompson will address issues ranging from AI-driven digital transformation and cybersecurity to managing cultural change and the role of the board. He will also discuss Microsoft’s strength in the cloud, the current global macroeconomic environment and implications for the U.S. technology sector as well as the lack of diversity in the sector.
