IN COLLABORATION WITH THE FT

Business innovation in 2020

The current disruption of the business world presents us with an opportunity to change course. We’ve seen global value chains unravel, leaving us to rethink the impact of systems designed to maximize profits and efficiency. Rapid digital transformation, made possible through third parties, becomes essential as the boundary between offline and online activity becomes blurred. How can companies implement innovation initiatives to ensure long-term success, support employee wellbeing, benefit society, and the economy at large?

In collaboration with the FT, Transform online event will leverage expert insights to tackle questions like:

  • How do businesses accelerate innovation efforts when spending is under pressure?
  • Which technologies and startups are leading the way in global supply chain and logistical innovation?


We’ve enlisted top thinkers including Sandy Fershee, Lab Director of D-Ford (Ford’s human-centered design lab), and Katherine Ray, Chief Marketing Officer of Babbel, to lead the way.

We know what you’re thinking: not another webinar. Couch Conferences go beyond the online format with hands-on workshops, live interviews, and audience Q&As. Interact with other attendees on real-time discussion boards and expect a few TNW-style touches — digital disco, anyone?

This event is for you if you are the head of innovation in a large company, a tech product owner, or interested in learning how to affect change in large organizations
