Description

EMBRACING DESIGN THINKING - PERSPECTIVES ON MAKING MEANINGFUL CHANGE

Lessons from the coalface of innovation

In the face of radical market disruption, how do you capture new customers in ways that engage, connect and delight? Answer: Embrace design to navigate disruption.

Infusing innovation using design thinking carves a path through change and uncertainty to give your organisation an edge.

Accelerate 2017 is a business event with a difference. It’s not just about what you’ll learn, but how you’ll learn it, with interactive and experiential sessions designed to stimulate all your senses.

  • Hear how major companies, including The New York Times, have reinvented themselves for the digital, social age.

  • See and learn first-hand how to use design thinking to get breakthroughs in your business.

  • Taste Artificial Intelligence in action as Chef Watson delivers lunch in collaboration with MasterChef Simon Gault.

Keynote: How the New York Times is navigating digital disruption

When the New York Times digital edition launched in January of 1996, it was a wholly separate operation, staffed out of a building on the other side of town, and updated once a day. Like everything then, it was free.

Twenty years later, digital is at the core of the operation. Despite powerful voices of opposition and difficult economic headwinds, the digital operation is a source of rapid growth.

James Slezak helped The NYT do more than survive. As COO of the global digital division, he innovated on the digital business model to allow the NYT to invest and prosper in the face of disruption.

Hear James Slezak and learn how to see opportunities and to innovate and grow.
