Ingenuity at &Now Business and Technology Festival 2018
May 10, 2018 at Istanbul Business School, Turkey
We live in an incredible time.
More change in the next 10 years than in the last 250 years.
Combine the printing press and steam engine, light bulb and jet aircraft, automated production and space travel, microprocessors and the Internet, cell phones and driverless cars, and much more … and you still can’t imagine the impact of what is emerging right now.
For leaders there are huge questions:
- How will you win in an age of digital technologies and intelligent robotics? The tsunami of new technologies can be overwhelming. The speed of change, the complexity of connectedness, and the fear of irrelevance. How can you embrace the future, and use these technologies, to move the world forwards, to drive innovation and growth?
- What can big companies learn from youthful entrepreneurs and small businesses? It often feels like young start-ups have the advantage, but large organisations have unique assets too. They have more to lose, but to do nothing is the bigger risk. How can they embrace the future in relevant and audacious ways?
- Why will human ingenuity triumph over machines and robots? Many fear that robots will take our jobs, and AI will outthink our brains. Not if we think different, and smarter. Humanity has unique assets that will never be matched, by what some see as “the point of singularity”. Instead we can harness the power and intelligence of technology to our advantage, to achieve more.
Ingenuity is about finding your magic.
The magic of humanity, of human creativity, to think and act beyond what has already been done.
In yourself as a leader. In your people as your unique asset. And in your customers and the wider communities in which your business has an impact.
“ingenuity” … the quality of being clever, original, and inventive … the ability to solve difficult problems, often in original, clever, and inventive ways. Ingenuousness.
Ingenuity is ultimately about inspirational leadership, relentless innovation and accelerating growth.
“The one who follows the crowd will go no further than the crowd. The one who walks alone is likely to find himself in places no one has ever been before …”
Analytics and optimisation, big data and automation, AI and robots, will take you where you know. Humanity, intuition and creativity will take you further.
