Disruption Summit Europe – 4th September 2018 – London
On the 4th September 2018, the second annual Disruption Summit Europe returns to London.
Produced by the team behind Disruptionhub and D/SRUPTION magazine this year’s summit brings together an even more diverse group of innovators, disruptors and change makers to share their experiences of turning disruption from a threat into an opportunity.
With emerging technologies and innovative new business models profoundly affecting the modern world, most organisations are now forced to make increasingly complex decisions in tight timeframes. While such rapid change can make disruption seem like a major threat to business, Disruption Summit Europe will show that it can be a major driver of competitive advantage.
We’re excited to welcome such a high calibre of speakers, with over 60 experts representing a breadth of industry sectors. Opening this year’s event we have entrepreneur and futurist thinker, Nell Watson who will share the latest developments in Machine Intelligence, Blockchain, and the emerging discipline of Machine Ethics. Joining Nell will be Bruce Daisley who heads up Twitter across Europe and will talk delegates through the future of work, and learning to love our jobs in the modern world, and we’re really looking forward to hearing Airbus’s Head of Blue Sky, Thierry Botter who will explain why quantum is such a game changer.
Rob Prevett, founder and CEO of D/SRUPTION and Disruption Summit Europe explains,
“As the pressure to digitalise increases business leaders are seeking practical answers to increasingly complex questions. Whilst too many focus on the challenges of disruption at Disruption Summit Europe we focus on the opportunities. We’ve curated the event to provide inspiration and practical solutions from people who have been through the journey. Ultimately, organisations are now looking to take control of disruption. The summit offers leaders in innovation, digital, strategy, and technology access to the knowledge sharing needed to keep up with the ever increasing pace of change.”
Across our three conference tracks – Technology, Innovation, and Purpose – delegates will hear from experts representing organisations large and small. Established organisations like Diageo, Vodafone and BT that are transforming their existing business by placing innovation at the very heart of their organisations. Businesses like Ocado that have disrupted entire industries, and entrepreneurs from Robosavvy, Unanimous AI and Rainbird who are harnessing technology to build the next generation of disruptors.
Disruption Summit Europe is all about knowledge sharing and collaboration. Delegates will be able to get hands-on with technologies in the interactive Innovation Lab – featuring 3D Printed Food, Facial Recognition, 3D Scanning, Data over sound and much more.
