Disruptive innovation is all about creating new markets and market conditions by applying a different set of values, modes and technologies that ultimately (and often unexpectedly) substantially impact or overtake an existing market.

Disruptive innovations can be transformational, evolutionary or even revolutionary in their scope and effect. They combine entrepreneurial nous and technological advances across a range of traditional and non-traditional industries including business, finance and banking, legal services, and education, among others.

This event will ask a diverse panel of business, management and education experts to explore disruptive innovation, its current applications and how its breakthroughs might change the future.
