Technological advance is fast and keeps accelerating. This means that businesses are getting disrupted. But do we really understand why? Do we know how long it will carry on for, and where it is headed? And most important, do we know when our own business will be disrupted?
This is not simply some kind of re-run of the market insanity of the dotcom bubble of 1999. This is classic digital disruption, and we should all try to understand it.

The internet is now boasting YouTube millionaires making money from their videos, Twitter lobbyists influencing politics, foodporn voyeurs and, of course, trolls! Smartphone apps such as Viber are making a stand and WhatsApp was just valued at $19 Billion!
Social Media has come a long way since Myspace, Hi5 and the first versions of Facebook. Even Napster, YouTube and Spotify, originally designed for other purposes have now become tools in the social media game.
Over the past 10 years social media has changed the way people communicate, forever! Join us for another outstanding evening of dramatic debate and determined discussion. Our guest speakers come from those groups at the heart of the revolution.

Television is changing unrecognisably - the convergence with digital and online is revolutionary. Everything is moving - scheduling, programming, formatting, engaging audiences – this new world is in many ways very different from what was imagined – and new opportunities and possibilities are expanding in every direction.

The word global seems to be in constant mutation. What is now a global business is something very different than what it was 10, 20 year ago. The internet has been a great facilitator, but surely there are other factors in why there are more global businesses than ever. And of course, all of us win with resources and creative capital being pooled from all over the world.
But driving a global business has many practical challenges. Join us and our guest speakers for an evening focussing on global businesses and the people who run them.

Documentary Makers are working in a medium without boundaries – that reinvents itself, pushes the limits, uncovers the hidden, creates historical records where there are none, give a voice to those who have none, and tells stories that move us, shake us and provoke us.
What is it that drives the Documentary Maker? How do they find their subject? How does the story reveal itself? When successful, how do they get the story out there?
An evening focused on the Documentary Makers – and amazing line-up, with Kemal Akhtar, Anna Ashcroft, John McGinty and Jon Thompson.
