No one was fully prepared for the impact of COVID-19. But as a leader, have you prepared your organisation for the next disruption? Do you know where your next disruption is coming from? 

With the exponential growth of data and acceleration of technological advancements, leaders who fail to keep pace with the speed of innovation will put companies out of business in six years or less. Disrupters are playing a very different game and even big industry players need to be prepared for disruption that seemingly comes from nowhere. How do companies manage disruption when it plays by its own rules?

This 60-minute live webinar will explore how disruptors have succeeded by capitalising on industry leader’s lack of innovation, creating devastating failures across all industries. The panel of speakers will share their insight and discuss the disruptors of today, disruptive technologies of tomorrow and the readiness of firms and human capital facing disruption in this post-digital age. Join the webinar to listen, learn and ask questions as our speakers navigate through the issues faced by businesses disrupted from nowhere.


Details on how to join this webinar will be sent via email 2 hours before the webinar start time.
