Scaling Up in the Digital World

Thursday 22 March 2018
Event 2pm-6pm | Reception 6pm-8pm
Surrey Business School, Rik Medlik Building, Guildford GU2 7XH

‘Scale up’ enterprises, contributing over £225bn to UK GDP, are drawing considerable
interest because of their key role in driving innovation, productivity and economic
growth. How can such enterprises accelerate their scaling activity by tapping into
emerging digital technologies such 5G mobile, Artificial Intelligence, Distributed
Ledger Technologies (i.e. Blockchain), predictive Analytics and Robotics? And, just as
important, what’s in the ‘Pandora’s Box’ of implications for consumers, businesses and
the economy, as well as for citizens and society?

What does it all mean for enterprises?
· Disruption vs Transformation: Are disrupters in the way or creating an
environment to transform the way business is done?
· Opportunities and Challenges: How should enterprises navigate the current
complex environment, seize opportunities, gain competitiveness and growth?
· Scaling Up with Digital: Where has digital worked to deliver
opportunities for scale-ups?

Come along and hear from our keynote speakers including Stephan Thoma, former
Global Learning & Development Director at Google, who set up and ran Google
University and Martin Lindpere –Economic Adviser to Prime Minister Estonia.
If you’re looking for insights into using digital technologies for rapid Scale Up to
