Innovation – Digitisation – Disruption – Pragmatism – Tech Myth Busting
Techweek’s theme of ‘innovation that’s good for the world’ is a noble cause and one that aligns closely to Beca’s purpose: Make everyday better. But what does innovation mean in the context of accelerating global disruption based on innovation, technology platform, brand, design and business model and not lose sight of the fact that it has always been for the betterment and evolution of the human experience?
Making the Future Less Scary: The velocity of innovation today is unparalleled in history. We are rapidly exposed to new technologies, often hyped beyond tangible application.
Beca is delighted to invite you to a 2-hour session of informative presentations and discussions about a pragmatic and tech myth-busting world where innovation is good for your business – and the world.
