A Glimpse of the Future for SMEs

Jeremy White, Innovation Editor, Wired Magazine

Jeremy will discuss the emerging trends and technological shifts that are affecting both consumers and businesses and will share what SMEs can learn about future threats and opportunities and how to adapt their market offerings.

In this thought-provoking session, enjoy a unique look into the future and come away with new ways of thinking.

The Unrealized Economic Potential of Female Entrepreneurs

Jill Pay, Chairman, The Gender Index

Research carried out by McKinsey & Co has shown that companies with the greatest gender diversity on their executive teams are 21% more likely to outperform peers on profitability and 27% more likely to create superior value. Jill will discuss how much new value could be added to our economies if we can attract more females to start and scale businesses.

This session will look at the need to improve funding, networking, and mentoring and how businesses should harness the creativity and innovation that comes from diversity of thought.
