Kate Ancketill is the brains behind GDR Creative Intelligence, which consults on innovation in retail, hospitality, technology, social media, brand marketing and packaging design for some of the world’s biggest brands, including Sony, P&G, InterContinental Hotels, Hilton, LVMH, Diageo, McDonald’s, Nokia, Orange, Capital One, Macy’s, and Sephora. World-renowned, Ancketill won the Jennifer d’Abo Memorial Scholarship for female entrepreneurs in 2007 and was selected as one of the UK’s top 100 in the Courvoisier Future 500 in 2009.

In an eye-opening, forward-thinking keynote presentation, she shares insights on the innovations that will change the face of business in the near future. Through a network honed over 21 years that features the world’s best creatives – including engineers, designers, marketing experts, artists, business executives, scientists, researchers, and more – Ancketill has her finger on the pulse of technology, innovation, and business trends, and she helps audiences see what is coming down the pipeline and where they should focus their efforts in order to not only keep up with the changes but stay ahead of the curve. With the belief that dreaming leads to innovation and science fiction has a way of becoming fact, Kate Ancketill discusses how innovation builds on itself and simply taking a discarded idea and tweaking it can turn it into a world-leading idea. She also addresses how consumer, brand, and retailer relationships are evolving and how this knowledge and understanding can deliver competitive advantage. Believing that insight is only useful if it’s actionable, her game-changing thinking is distilled into relevant, realistic insights.
