Smartphones Give Us Superpowers, Now What?Louis Powell
09:00 - 09:30The Auditorium
Smartphones are now ten years old and they have changed the world we live in. Mobile-first businesses upended 100-year old industries. Consumers became more empowered as ever. Now, according to a Deloitte research study, we check our smartphones around 74 times per day on average. We live in a mobile-first world where constantly connected consumers are demanding and impatient. So what? You think you’ve got your mobile strategy down? Think again. In a tech climate that’s looking towards anything and everything AI, join a Google expert to discover why the mobile web remains the gateway to the world economy.
Is Corporate Responsibility Over?Siena Parker
09:30 - 10:00The Auditorium
Traditional corporate responsibility can often conjure up images of bake sales and well-meaning teams painting primary schools as a way of ‘giving something back.’ But the world of responsible business is going through a radical transformation as consumers – especially Gen Z and millennials - want more from the services and products they buy. How can we harness this societal shift to put social impact at the heart of how our business operates and who we are as both a brand and employer? What does it mean to be a responsible business in 2020 - and what might it mean in the future? Siena will share a number of examples from the work that Penguin books has done as part of the publisher’s ‘Creative Responsibility’ strategy, including piloting an alternative to primary school libraries.

Lifelong Learning Neil Allison
14:00 - 14:30The Auditorium
AI-enabled automation is reshaping industries and changing fundamentally how work gets done. The robots are not going to take (all) our jobs, but they will change what jobs look like. The risk to incumbent companies and workers has never been higher, and few are ready. The big challenge is not about upskilling and you’re done, but for companies and workers to shift to lifelong employability, which means continually learning, getting new skills and capabilities that drive greater agility and competitiveness in a fast changing, uncertain world.
