As technology evolves at increasing speed, so too do the threats and opportunities to businesses…of all shapes and sizes. So in this constantly shifting digital world, how do you future proof your business, to both manage the threats and seize the opportunities?
As part of the diverse events offering at Wakefield Business Week 2018, AD:VENTURE is delivering an innovative event offering businesses the chance to hear from Silicone Valley experts on innovation practice, Herman Gyr Ph.D. and Laszlo Gyorffy M.S. on how to positively deal with dramatic disruption brought about by technological developments.
The event is the brainchild of Keith Evans and Cara Brundle , sector development manager’s for Wakefield Council, who run a range of specialist sector support programmes for Wakefield District as part of the wider AD:VENTURE offer of supporting new and young businesses to thrive in the Leeds City Region.
Keith comments “Wakefield Business Week is a perfect opportunity to bring new business owners together and offer them practical and valuable insights on how to develop their products and services in a cost effective and forward thinking way. We wanted to deliver something a bit different, and we are delighted to have secured Herman and Laszlo to deliver this TED style talk . They have the experience and knowledge to empower our districts businesses to take hold of the opportunities presented by digital disruption, and not to fall victim to the pitfalls of failing to future proof for change.
Cara says “I would highly recommend businesses from across the Wakefield District and wider Leeds City Region come along to this event. It’s not only an opportunity to hear from global leaders on digital change and innovation, but delegates will also have the opportunity to network with each other and connect with us and the wider team to access the wide range of support we can through the AD:VENTURE programme”
