#Disruption2018 Debrief

Blockchain. Cryptocurrency. Autonomous vehicles…these technological terms are banded about in the office, in media and are infiltrating our lives whether we want it to, or  not. On 24th October 2018 BDC hosted the tech briefing of the year, demonstrating how to apply technology into business. Innovation Birmingham served as the backdrop for a day of thought provoking discussions around the tables as well as ideas and explanations from industry leaders like Uber and Tesla. Here’s the #Disruption2018 debrief, giving you a sneak peek into the incredibly insightful inaugural event.


B.D. and award winning Author of Futureproof, Caleb Storkey, kicked off proceedings. The duo offered a concise overview of applied and emerging tech and it’s real-world implementation into your business. A key factor to think about, is how this tech would actually enhance your business.

“Don’t try to do everything and use all kinds of technology. Think about tech that would enhance your business for you and your clients. What could you use and implement really well, rather than applying tech that might not be

beneficial or relevant to your business?”

– Caleb Storkey, Award Winning Co-Author of Futureproof 

Following the energetic introduction to tech, Simon Barry, Blockchain and Cryptocurrency specialist took the stage to de-mystify these terms. Examples of companies who have applied this tech were offered, and ways in which we can apply this to our own business, if beneficial to do so, were given.
Representatives of Disruptive industry giants, Uber and Tesla also demonstrated ways in which they are disrupting their market, how they’re doing this. It was incredible to see the future vision from their perspective. The overall message conveyed by Uber, was to ensure the tech you currently/considering to apply is not only beneficial to you and your business, but ensuring it will enhance your client’s experience.
We had an incredible response from speakers and attendees. Everybody left with food for thought, inspired to dive into the world of technology. We plan to delve even deeper into these thought-provoking topics on emerging and disruptive tech, and how you can apply technology into business – see you at #Disruption2019!
