Inside Innovation 2017

Digital disruption threatens long established business models. Shareholders and investors demand cuts and expect more for less – at the same time as the need for innovation in product and service has never been greater. If ‘software is eating the world’ is your industry next on the menu? Are your dreams are haunted by being AirBnB’d?

In October 2017, as we went inside three world-beating businesses that have taken a bold stance on innovation and have put it at the heart of their strategies and cultures: LEGO, TESLA and Jaguar Land Rover. We met the start-ups, investors and corporates who are finding ways to collaborate in order to create new value.

“ …you [get] to see amazing companies with your own eyes… coming away with a basketful of insights and ideas stolen with their blessing!”
Tracey Ashworth-Davies, HR and Board Director, Molson Coors, UK
