The Internet of Things: a pipe dream or near reality?
Our expert speaker Dr Martin Stillman-Jones has over 35 years’ experience in business; developing leaders, building teams and growing brands.
Martin’s presentation will focus on the internet of things” – the huge, inter-connected economy which is transforming the way we both live and work.
To succeed, companies must think outside the box. They must be agile; dissecting markets and opportunities in different ways to find new ways to attract customers. And they must be ruthless about discarding their own old habits and legacy investments, breaking with the past to embrace the future.
Martin will talk through real life examples from Kodak, Instagram, Google, Facebook, Uber and Airbnb and bring to life the realities of technological change giving key steps on how to exploit these changes to obtain business growth.
Martin worked his way up through the marketing hierarchy to Worldwide Head of Marketing at Diageo (with £12 billion in revenues) then as a Strategist at PricewaterhouseCoopers advising plc Clients on strategy, acquisitions & disposals.
He later went on to build his own multi-national multi-million group of over 50 businesses, before selling these to concentrate on the development of Agile Strategy and mentoring maverick Founders to disruptive plc CEO’s delivering business transformation.
