2017 Opening Keynote Address

10x Innovation Thinking:  Turbo-Charging Your Innovation Agenda

Dan Cobley
Managing Partner FinTech.

The world is changing at a faster rate than at any time in human history. Every sector of industry is being transformed by technology, creating new winners and threatening established players. Innovation is increasingly critical to survival, and while normal, incremental innovation is important, it is 10x innovation thinking that will really turbo-charge your progress. Dan will talk about the approach to innovation taken by Google and other innovation leaders, and how you can add 10x innovation thinking to your process.

Embrace the insights and enthusiasm of former Google MD, with a resume that includes marketing leadership around Europe at Capital One, Pepsi, Walkers and Ask Jeeves. Dan Cobley spent three years as Managing Director of Google in the UK and Ireland—the most advanced major countries in terms of e-commerce and online advertising spending.

Dan Cobley is currently building financial technology start-up businesses with Blenheim Chalcot, a London-based venture builder.


2017 Closing Keynote Address

Can Technology Solve Everything?

Margaret Heffernan
Author, CEO, Business Thinking, Closing Keynote.

In the future, we will have technology solve many problems previously thought to be insoluble. Are there any challenges left that technology won’t solve? Are there limits to what it can achieve — and who will solve the problems that it creates? As we start to integrate new technologies into the way that we live and work, we have to think about how we balance human input and creativity with machine security and stability. But who decides — and how?

Margaret Heffernan is an entrepreneur, CEO of five companies and prize winning author of five books with a body of work that includes:

 * BBC Radio and Television—contributing to acclaimed British Television shows Timewatch, Arena, and Newsnight.

 * Running the IPPA—a trade association which the British Financial Times once described as "the most formidable lobbying organization in England."

 * Author, blog writer, and teacher and mentor to senior executives around the world.

Throughout her career, Heffernan has focused considerable energies on exploring and communicating why and how organisations packed full of talented executives fail to spot major problems or capture the full innovative capacity of their people. Don’t miss out on what her thinking can bring to you and your organization.
