What happened in Disruptive Innovation 2019?

Thrive or die in industry 4.0. It’s that simple.

As we move further into the fourth industrial revolution, the disruptive potential of new business models and emerging technologies require organisations to constantly adopt, adapt and innovate to stay relevant.

Disruptive Innovation 2019 explores how leading brands have disrupted, how innovators have increased their edge, and why companies need to rethink how they deliver their services. Featuring international speakers not found anywhere else in Australia – this is THE innovation event of the year.

Don’t get left behind. Develop the strategic vision you need today, to ensure you stay relevant tomorrow.

Most companies aren’t prepared to respond to disruption, let alone embrace and thrive on it. Emerging tech such as automation, AI, blockchain and data analytics represent industry 4.0 and present an opportunity to either gain competitive advantage by adopting new tech, or face collapse by ignoring it.

The 2nd annual Disruptive Innovation Summit 2019 aims to help organisations rethink their innovation strategy, create an emerging technologies roadmap, and put them in a disruptive mindset to increase competitiveness and productivity.
