Disruptive Thinking to Drive Innovation & Growth

1-Day Training Course: A unique course for leaders on how to create new ideas, products, markets & new growth opportunities. Disruption is everywhere. It’s changing industries, overturning longheld conventions and dramatically improving the consumer experience. You can fear this change or you can thrive in this new era of rapid, discontinuous change. But disruption is not just being driven by the digital leaders. It’s a much bigger idea than this. It’s becoming the most important leadership challenge.
