From Chaos to Predictable OutcomesEmanuel Martonca12:00 - 12:30The Auditorium
Disruption has become a buzz word in nearly all industries for a reason. Big companies are facing a new - change or be changed - type of challenge, while startups are getting more visible and dynamic. Innovation is the key for both large organisations and startups, if they want to succeed in this environment. But innovating in uncertainty conditions is not for the weak-hearted. During this session, Manu will be talking about what it takes to get to predictable outcomes in tech innovation.

Changing the engine when the plane’s in the airAndy Morris17:00 - 17:30The Auditorium
Innovation almost by its nature disrupts but established companies have legacy business to protect. To stay relevant we always need to be building the next thing, to stay profitable we need to be delivering the current thing. How do you marry the two? The temptation always is to tinker, to slowly adapt rather than revolutionise but then the big opportunites are likely to be missed. The most successful companies are able to change to a new super-charged engine even when they are half way across the Atlantic and need to keep the plane in the air. Andy will use the example of the design and launch of YouGov Profiles to show how you can do this and how it is possible to disrupt an industry without disrupting yourselves.

Insurtech and looming threat of disruptive innovation in InsuranceParul Kaul-Green09:30 - 10:00The Auditorium
Disruption, a term that once meant unusual disturbance has now become ubiquitous jargon across all industries. Google Apple Facebook Amazon are expected to take over the world and It feels as though many industries today live in the fear of extinction. Insurance- a 300 year old industry, is not immune to this disruption. Artificial Intelligence, Social-Peer2Peer, Internet of thing, among others are forcing incumbents to think about evolving business models and put serious thought and investment in to “Next Generation” Insurance. The talk will discuss the anatomy of disruption and how industry is preparing for it
Why Everyone in Your Office Knows your PasswordSam Tatam10:00 - 10:30The Auditorium
How Seeing the Unseen in Human Behaviour will lead to the Greatest Innovations of our Age Who would have imagined that a baby's face could stop crime - or that small tiles on the supermarket floor could make you buy more? This talk explores the need for behavioural science to guide innovation and shows that the more we understand about neuroscience, evolutionary biology and social psychology the better equipped we are to design the un-intrusive innovations that will change our worlds - and close the security flaws.
A frugal innovation approach to strategy developmentKatherine Crisp10:30 - 11:00The Auditorium
Frugal innovation is a whole new mindset and approach to innovation, where organisations in emerging economies are teaching those in established economies how to problem solve and identify opportunities when resource is highly constrained. So what can we learn from this approach in relation to strategy development in the UK? What happens when you are running the show without any consultants to hand? What happens when you don’t have a team of people to help develop the new strategy? Where do you start? Who do you involve? Which tools do you use? What does the journey look like? And (from my perspective) what worked and what would I do differently?

Digital Disruption & transformationKevin Mansfield11:30 - 12:00The Auditorium
The content industry has changed dramatically over the last ten years, as the move to digital content consumption has increased. In order for traditional print businesses to survive and to grow, they need to digitally transform, this requires changes in company thinking, culture, working practises and customer approach. I’d like to share some of the work we have done over the last twelve months, that have enabled us to continue on the digital transformation journey, from getting closer to our customers and understanding behaviours, through to rapid design and outcome focused product development.

Innovation has become Conformity in disguiseShannon Riley12:30 - 13:00The Auditorium
Companies have killed the true meaning of innovation in an attempt to deliver it. With a long career helping companies embed ‘innovation’ into their culture, processes and business models, I have watched innovation’s underlying principles lost in a world of jargon, PR and scripted approaches and frameworks. How can we achieve originality when our approach to innovation has become so mainstream?

THE REAL PATH TO INTERGRATED INNOVATIONGrace Letley17:00 - 17:30The Auditorium
Rewind five years and ‘innovation’ is the buzzword in marketing departments the world over. Almost every agency or brand is building a department or function within its business designed to make the process of innovation tangible and accountable. With mixed results, many of businesses and ad agencies are now dissolving these departments and instead attempting to integrate innovative thinking throughout a business. In truth, the real aim should be to examine the reasons for innovation and develop a focused, practical approach to it. In this session, Grace Letley will explain how businesses can take the desire to be innovative and turn it into something tangible that is clearly defined and can be truly understood. She will highlight the pitfalls of the widespread, aimless innovation that has littered the marketing industry in the past and highlight examples of best practice from across the marketing and media landscape.
