He will be discussing the issue of digital disruption and how this will affect the financial and other sectors in a keynote titled: Digital disruption & big data – disrupt, don’t be disrupted! How to stay ahead of the digital curve

Everyone hears about digital disruption –  the taxi industry is being disrupted by Uber, AirBnB is taking on the hotels and Netflix is eating everyone’s much – but it doesn’t apply to us does it?

Think again.

Every section of every industry is being disrupted by digital technologies and new business models.

Digital and social pioneer Andrew Grill, Global Managing Partner at IBM Social Consulting will answer the question – how do we disrupt and not be disrupted?

Cloud, mobile, social, IOT, cognitive, blockchain, big data – these are many of the buzzwords we’re hearing but what do they mean for the Linedata Exchange London audience? Andrew will translate these into a plan you can use to stay ahead of the digital curve.

Andrew also firmly feels that to “get digital”, you have to BE digital, and so will provide some practical tips and tricks.

Past speakers at this event have included Jason Bradbury, host of the Gadget Show, and David Rowan, the former editor of Wired UK.
