Revolutionary Enterprises

Enabling the Future Organisation. Fast.


Tuesday 30 April | London

The speed at which emerging technologies are revolutionising industries is beyond fathomable, by the time companies observe, strategise and react, there is another new wave of disruption to tackle. Being responsive is not good enough, organisations need to be proactive! Staying ahead of the innovation cycles is becoming crucial to build organisations with a sustainable future. At this event we will discuss how can companies drive perpetual transformation and be the creator of change as opposed to being a follower.


Developing a culture of seeding ideas fast, incubating innovations across the board, using intelligent data as the oil and technology as an enabler to value based growth is going to be essential. We will touch on four key themes:


Reinventing and reimagining the future organisation
Harnessing  Technology to Unlock Value
Creating New Value Streams
Exploiting a Collaborative Ecosystem
