Smart Citizens: How To Make Government More Accountable

The buzz: “The real secret of success in Government 2.0 is thinking about government as a platform” (Dr. Mark Drapeau). “Government of the people, by the people, for the people” resonates around the world, yet polls reveal deep distrust of governing institutions that forget the people. Enter E-Government and Open Government. When combined, they pave the way for Government 2.0, a next generation collaborative technology using social media, cloud computing, new technologies and AI-based apps to increase citizen participation. The experts speak. Colleen Hardwick, PlaceSpeak: “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself” (President Franklin D. Roosevelt).

Smart Citizens: How To Make Government More Accountable

Digital Shopping Era Clicks vs. Bricks: Rescuing Brick-and-Mortar

The buzz: “Retail is undergoing a massive change, and there is a chance for new leaders to emerge and older brands to reinvent themselves." (Kirsten Green) Retailers: Your in-store customer experience can account for up to 98% of total sales. Going digital shouldn't mean focusing on “clicks” instead of “bricks”. To compete with online retailers, brick-and-mortar stores need to transform. How? Tesla acts strictly as a showroom, with no on-hand inventory and only online ordering. Apple, Microsoft, Target and Walmart adopt the latest technologies to bring the customer back to the retail floor. Need help? Tech startups can help make your in-store experience shine again. The experts speak. Guillaume Waline, Indigo Connected Retail: “Kites rise highest against the wind, not with it" (Winston Churchill). Steve Rietzke, SAP: “If you really look closely, most overnight successes took a long time” (Steve Jobs). Join us for Digital Shopping Era Clicks vs. Bricks: Rescuing Brick-and-Mor...

Disrupter's Dilemma: Compete or Collaborate with Incumbents?

The buzz: “I’m actually as proud of the things we haven’t done as the things I have done. Innovation is saying ‘No’ to 1,000 things” (Steve Jobs, Apple Worldwide Developers Conference 1997). The $1M Question for disruptive technology entrants: Compete or collaborate with the established players in your target market? But it’s more complex than that. Incumbent companies aware of newcomers’ challenges can acquire the best or disrupt themselves by exploring and rolling-in innovations on their own. Hmmm…The experts speak. Yusuf Jazakallah, Recruitment Smart: “Failure is an option here. If things are not failing, you are not innovating enough” (Elon Musk). Frederick Ronse, Ovinto: “In order for the light to shine so brightly, the darkness must be present” (Francis Bacon).
