Design Thinking for the Future

Facilitated by global technology leader – Accenture UK

Persistent change, challenged assumptions, and disruption are now the norm, rather than the exception, in business and society. And these indicators will only accelerate and multiply as we progress into the future. The lightning-speed of change, driven by technology, is taking us from the digital age toward a new reality, one we call the post-digital world. The Accenture Technology Vision 2019 lays out the inarguably bold and complex path that businesses will encounter in the coming years, as digital continues to take hold and the next wave of powerful technologies ushers in a new era.

Join us for an interactive workshop where we’ll talk about the technology trends that businesses will have to consider if they’re to remain relevant and competitive in ever-changing markets, followed by a hands-on Design Thinking workshop where we’ll use these trends to come up with solutions to some of society’s most pressing challenges.
