We have put together an inspiring, diverse, and balanced program that will provide you with new ideas and insights, and will be engaging and fun.

The morning plenary session hosted the keynote by Adam Pisoni and a range of “TED-style” short talks that cover various aspects of digital disruption.

In the afternoon, attendees participated in one of six workshops, before we ran our disruptive roundtable session, where people got to join up to three tables to discuss a range of interesting topics with experts in their respective fields.
