Download a summary of the DISRUPTION keynote by Peter Fisk

Across the world, new ideas, new businesses and new solutions are transforming every market.  A new generation of businesses are rising out of the maelstrom of economic and technological change across our world. They think and act differently, and are shaking up every market.

“Gamechangers” are disruptive and innovative, start-ups and corporates, in every sector and region, reshaping our world. They are more ambitious, with stretching vision and enlightened purpose. They see markets as kaleidoscopes of infinite possibilities, assembling and defining them to their advantage. They find their own space, then shape it in their own vision. Most of all they have great ideas. They outthink their competition, thinking bigger and different. They don’t believe in being slightly cheaper or slightly better. That is a short-term game of diminishing returns.

Business leaders need a new mindset to win in today’s world.

Markets of relentless change, exponential technologies, social and political uncertainty, challenge every business leader. Ideas can change the world, but making sense of this change, and making new strategies happen is not easy. In fact, everything you learn’t at business school has probably changed.

In this fast, disruptive and inspiring session, bestselling author Peter Fisk will help you explore:

  • Making sense of a fast-changing world … and how to find the best new opportunities for growth. West to East, big to small, human and technologies, big data and imagination.
  • Learning from the world’s most innovative companies – and what you can learn from them. Alibaba and Buzzfeed to Hyperloop and Xiaomi, shaking up every market right now.
  • Changing your brain – transform your business, your market, and leadership. How can you lead like Elon Musk, harness the new possibilities and drive exponential growth?
  • Changing your game – Disrupt top down like NASA, disrupt bottom up like Aldi , find new markets  like Red Bull, connect markets like BeautyIn, redefine the value chain like IKEA.
  • Innovating and accelerating your future growth – how business leaders can shape the future now, harnessing the power of ideas and networks to innovate and grow exponentially.

Peter Fisk is a global thought leader on making sense of a changing world – about leadership and strategy, innovation and growth. His 7 bestselling books are translated into 35 languages, including the most recent “Gamechangers”. He is founder of Geniusworks, director of Thinkers50 Global, and Professor of Strategy, Innovation and Marketing at IE Business School.
