Wavelength USA, Inside Silicon Valley 2018
Between June 24-29th Wavelength USA will take 25 business leaders into the heart of Silicon Valley and inside two organisations at the forefront of cultural and service excellence.
Participants will visit Airbnb, Ritz-Carlton, GE, W.L. Gore & Associates (the company behind Gore-Tex) and RocketSpace (the tech campus where Uber & Spotify began) and hear from leading entrepreneurs/thought leaders on AI, Machine Learning, IOT, Big Data and Future of Work.
Participants will also visit Umpqua – the self-titled ‘World’s Greatest Bank’. Subject to Harvard case studies for their reputation for service excellence Umpqua has been referred to as a ‘cultural phenomenon’. The visit will include their new Venture, Pivotus, designed to pivot the bank onto digital platforms.
“We came, we saw and we were blown away. More importantly we’ve done something about it. The whole purpose of education is not learning, but action. As a direct result of our amazing experience on Wavelength USA, we’ve set up ‘Hiscox Futures’, a simple, focused action group to tackle 21st century innovation and digital disruption”
Steve Langan, CEO, Hiscox Insurance Co. CEO, Direct Asia Group and CMO, Hiscox Group
“ …you [get] to see amazing companies with your own eyes… coming away with a basketful of insights and ideas stolen with their blessing!”
