Keynote speaker topic – Harnessing the Power of Innovation


In a globalized, commoditized world, the only remaining sustainable advantage lies in consistent innovation. Networks, both inside and outside the organization, are the keys to successful innovation in products, business processes, and strategy. Staff and their ideas can be connected in new ways to yield powerful outcomes. Even giants such as IBM, Boeing, and Procter & Gamble have realized they cannot be self-sufficient in innovation, making them adopt “open innovation” approaches that reach outside to a larger world of talent. Open source software concepts provide a valuable foundation for many emerging commercial models. Today more than ever, those who are better at developing rich knowledge-based relationships have an enormous advantage over their competitors, especially in terms of innovation.


Ross Dawson gave the keynote on Harnessing the Power of Innovation to a group of senior executives of clients of the business division of a major telecommunications firm.

The intention of the event was to help the telco’s clients to grasp the importance of innovation in their businesses, and the steps they could take now to drive new business value.
