Learning and innovation go hand in hand. The arrogance of success is to think that what you did yesterday will be sufficient for tomorrow.

Innovation. A widely used term. A vocabulary now embedded into all business-related activities and strategies, a word now often used by senior leaders and stakeholders. It is not just about the product and technologies, it is about the company as a whole. It’s about the management structure, the language, incentives, culture, process, and of course, embracing the correct technologies.
Disruptors are popping up all over the place and advancing in a precipitous pace- the rise of start-ups, emerging world-shaking technologies, doubled up of venture capital funding are disrupting businesses in every industry. Now, companies in certain industries need to transform and innovate in speed as the winds shifted – but lacking the management support, incentives, or even the process on how to do that; And there are companies simply just focus on tweaks rather than real transformation.
C-Levels, Entrepreneurs, Thought Leaders, Inventors and Investors shoulder the responsibilities for driving innovation, strategies, product development in their organizations, transformation is no longer an option but an essential factor. Join us to hear the most important topics, opportunities and challenges in the world of innovation, learn strategies to support your future development and remain ahead of competition.
The summit aims to demystify why innovation fails and what’s not working for the organizations, explore transformative innovation culture and re-innovate management structure and model.
The International Innovation Summit provides an unparalleled platform that is power-packed with networking and sharing of insights with an elite community of innovators. Every organization is striving to resolve the major challenges in their innovation structure and at the same time searching for opportunities and new ideas to drive business growth.
It's a great event where you see all different kinds of thought leaders from different countries with different international background come together to share best practices design thinking, it's always a pleasure to hear different views on how to innovate for the future, what might be interesting and what we can foresee for the future.
It's the first time I attend the Int' Innovation Summit and I'm very amazed, I'm very amazed by the high caliber speakers that we have had today, by the open-minded approach from all the people here exchanging ideas about innovation, I enjoyed very much and I'll be back for sure.
What actually brought me to this summit is the title of the panel discussion that I had the chance to be in-which is going beyond innovation theatre. I think it's important for people to know, they have to innovate for the right reasons. The biggest takeaway of the summit is also the different kinds of ideas, viewpoints for audience to take back and implement in their day-to-day work, and great to network with people who you might not usually meet daily, that's one of the biggest value I see.
