The driving forces of step-change innovation will be explored at Frost & Sullivan’s GIL 2015: Europe in London
The core catalysts of innovation impacting all of humanity are connectivity and convergence, the theme of Frost & Sullivan’s Growth, Innovation and Leadership (GIL) 2015: Europe. The GIL congress returns to London for its seventh consecutive year on Thursday, 14th May in Kensington, London (GB). Over 200 industry leaders are expected to convene from all over Europe to share ideas and strategies to make their business choices successful.
With his keynote on “New Convergence Business Models,” EIA Partner & Director Dorman Followwill will discuss why convergence plays a key role in identifying new business models that drive growth. Directly after there will be a ground-breaking keynote address showcasing global leadership in connectivity and convergence driven innovation in healthcare through the 100,000 Whole Human Genome Sequencing Project lead by Genomics England. The Chief Scientist spearheading this most important project globally on genomics and personalised medicine, Professor Mark Caulfield, will explore this project. This represents an excellent case study of connectivity & convergence across multiple IT platforms and research/care facilities in Britain coming together to drive global leadership in an initiative that will ultimately impact every person on the planet.
“We are seeing that the core catalysts of step-change innovation across industries and geographies are connectivity & convergence, and one of the most incredible examples of global leadership in innovation is happening right here in the UK with the 100,000 Whole Human Genome Sequencing Project. It is a joy to see the UK taking global leadership in such an exciting initiative, and we look forward to learning best practices that can be applied across industries and initiatives from Professor Caulfield,” said Mr Followwill.
The one-day congress is part of Frost & Sullivan’s exclusive Growth, Innovation and Leadership community that represents a global network of over 5,000 senior executives. It will start at 9 am with a welcome speech by the Head of UK Operations, Partner Gary Jeffery.
Highlights include: Global Trends in Connectivity and Convergence by Partner Sarwant Singh, Techvision 2020 by Practice Director Ankit A. Shukla and the 2015 Frost & Sullivan Growth Excellence Awards Banquet.
