Guest Keynote: Accelerating Innovation in a New Age of Agility

Jane explores how emerging technologies - from AI and big data, to IoT and robotics - are equipping us with new capabilities that are transforming the way work gets done. As our toolkits continuously change, few organisations are geared up to take full advantage of the opportunity to innovate more boldly and rapidly than ever before. As the possibilities grow exponentially, it becomes clear that it’s not a technology challenge that business is facing today, but a human, psychology challenge. We no longer have time for traditional, centralised approaches to change. Today’s challenges call for a flexible, open approach to the way we design our teams, processes, organisations… and lives. It’s time to think differently.
