IMAGINING THE FUTURE
We live in disruptive times. When markets and society change in unprecedented, unpredictable ways, understanding the future is no longer a matter of extrapolating from the past. The future is created and has to be actively imagined.
DISRUPT.SYDNEY™, in its 5th year, is Australia’s first and oldest disruption conference. This year we invited our audience to join our speakers and facilitators in imagining the future of business and society, what implications emerging technologies bring and how organisations can cope with and be managed in such environments.
Imagination is not easy. Yet to truly lead in the future we must dare to imagine it. Imagination is an invitation to explore complex implications of dramatic change. It is also a provocation to imagine a radically different future.
DISRUPT.SYDNEY 2017 is brought to you by the Digital Disruption Research Group (DDRG) and Sydney Business Insights (SBI).
Watch the highlights:
Highlights this year were:
- #meetmike – The Australia launch of ‘Digital Mike‘- a real-time rendered photo-realistic avatar that promises to redefine the future of VR
