This year’s theme “GBS Innovation: Disrupt or be Disrupted”, is geared towards helping you to re-imagine your industry, that will challenge and inspire the industry to think differently and instigate change. Industries are being disrupted every day with new ideas that don’t just challenge the status quo but represent real paradigm shifts. The pace of that disruption is accelerating and the consequences for any industry are clear — success belongs to the disruptors. Disruptive companies and ideas upend markets by doing something truly different—they see a need, an empty space waiting to be filled, and they dare to create something for which a market may not yet exist. In the process, the vast majority of them make people, industries and governments very uncomfortable. This discomfort persists until a new normal is reached.
“The secret of change is not to focus all your energy on fighting the old but on building the new.” - Socrates
The discomfort is a necessary, unavoidable and desirable part of disruption. For within its fractious friction lie the seeds of continued innovation. Truly free disruption follows its own, often unanticipated, design. Amazon, which started off as an online bookstore, has disrupted not just retail but also cloud services, entertainment and now potentially delivery logistics (drones). Alibaba, which started out as an online retailer, has disrupted financing, telecommunication, transaction and so much more. Facebook, which started off as a social network for college campuses, is today disrupting telecommunications companies with mobile messaging and media conglomerates with instant articles.
Technology is enabling disruption at the speed of light. Some disruptions are nice to have (for instance, music streaming, meal delivery), others are cornerstones of human progress (for instance, information, energy, security, wellness) Hear keynote presentations from thought leaders who will speak in keynote presentations and plenary sessions that will invigorate your business value as buyers and sellers join forces to discuss hot trending topics in a closed-door and stimulating environment.
