DISRUPT.SYDNEY to tackle genuine disruption and what it means for the future of business

September 13, 2016 Conferences No Comments Email Email

The annual DISRUPT.SYDNEY conference, hosted by the University of Sydney Business School, is to focus this year on the definition of “disruption” and asks “has the term become a synonym for change as usual”?

In keeping with its “change” theme, October’s DISRUPT.SYDNEY will open with science guru Dr Karl Kruszelnicki’s insights into the drivers that will bring change in business and society over the next decade.

Another highlight will be a keynote address by Deloitte’s Juliet Bourke on building workplaces for diversity and inclusion in a way that will drive innovation.

“Our aim this year is to separate disruption from mere change,” said Professor Kai Riemer who leads the School’s Digital Disruption Research Group. “We will be looking at what it is that makes change and innovation disruptive and ways that businesses can enable disruption but also react to disruption.”

In a somewhat courageous move DISRUPT.SYDNEY, now in its fourth year, will also attempt to demystify “blockchain” technology. “We are going to look at what this technology can do for society and business more broadly, beyond its usual field of application in finance,” said Professor Riemer.
