Global Innovation Report
In an eye-opening, forward-thinking keynote presentation, Kate Ancketill 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, 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.
Businesses of all varieties are moving toward hyper personalization, offering adaptive environments that change with your mood, shopping lists that write themselves, and responsive stores that change with the weather. Consumers’ expectations are accelerating, and Kate Ancketill gives businesses the insight they need to keep up.
