How businesses can thrive through innovation.

The ever-increasing pace of innovation is changing business across the world, as technology, business models and even entire industries converge. Your businesses can thrive by taking advantage of new opportunities, or simply become obsolete.

Dr Chris Hartshorn knows better than almost anyone what the future holds and what plans businesses are making to grow. He has advised many of the world's leading companies - including Samsung, PepsiCo, BMW and IBM. As Callaghan Innovation's new Chief Technology Officer, he is sharing his insights into this changing world and what it means for New Zealand businesses.

Get a taste of Chris’s thoughts on innovation here.

Chris and Callaghan Innovation’s other leaders are travelling around the country to talk to local companies. The next Succeed in a Changing World event is on 12 April in the Hawke’s Bay, at Mission Estate Winery.

As well as Chris’s insights, you will also hear from local business Haden & Custance about how they have used innovation to succeed, and how Callaghan Innovation has helped.

Join Chris, Callaghan Innovation’s new chief executive Vic Crone and other local businesses to discuss how your company can innovate and thrive.

Discussions will be preceded by a light lunch and followed by networking over drinks.

(Previous 'Succeed in a changing world' events have been held in Palmerston North, New Plymouth, Nelson, Whangarei, Dunedin and Tauranga.)
