Disruptive and Innovative Thinking in the Digital Age Digital Transformation’ and ‘Disruptive Innovation’ are the words on everyone’s lips. So what room is there for creativity and initiative when algorithms, Big Data and AI seem to trump all human endeavours?
Working at the interface between the digital and human worlds, Nigel explores with leaders around the globe how to develop the qualities of personal and organisational creativity, as we inevitably become digital citizens. Technology companies like Apple, Gartner, Hewlett-Packard and Microsoft, as well as many others across industry sectors, have benefited from his insights on what to pack for the future - and how to stay sane in the gold rush to digitise everything. Here are some typical talks he has given:
The Mindset of a Disruptor What does it take to transcend convention, upend assumptions and adopt a possibility mindset? This talk explores what, and how.
Garagista! Innovation as Everybody's Business Many of the world’s great disruptors were birthed in a garage. How do you bring this attitude and practice to bear on your greatest innovative challenges?
Digicare - the Customer Experience in the On-line World Retaining the human touch in digital times – and applying it to the on-line experience you provide for your users and customers.
Millennial Mania - Managing the New Generation There are over 80 million so-called ‘millennials’ in the USA alone. A generation with different values, expectations and attitudes towards work and technology. So how do we most effectively lead and market to this new cohort?
Future Curious When the world is transforming and shaking beneath our feet, how do we find the time, space, and motivation to be curious about the new? Curiosity is the basis of creativity, so what are the tools to keep us thinking in fresh, and disruptive ways?
