Talking Tech Trends

Presenting at PwC and MITX’s Disruptive Innovation Event

Sixty-one percent of CEOs interviewed in PwC’s annual Global CEO Survey said they were concerned about the speed of technological change in their industries. Given the sheer pace and acceleration of technological advances in recent years, business leaders can be forgiven for feeling dazed and perhaps a little frustrated. While more and more executives are getting tech-savvy and know that digital disruption can be your friend as well as enemy, it’s fair to say that most struggle to find the time and energy necessary to keep up with the technologies driving transformation across every industry and in every part of the world.

This is where we come in. In this debate-style session, we have chosen the emerging technologies that they believe matter the most. Joining our clients from PwC, PTC, and IBM, plus featured speakers from augmented reality startup Meta, industry publication DroneLife, and (potentially) robots startup Jibo, we will explain why these technologies are will be hot in 2017 and beyond.

During this event, the questions we will address will include:

  • Which emerging technologies should we invest in based on business relevance and technical viability?
