09:45 – 10:45 Keynote: The Phoenix and the Unicorn — Peter Hinssen

Peter Hinssen’s ‘The Phoenix and the Unicorn’ will help you understand what is happening in a world of constant change. It’s about observing and trying to learn from the magical Unicorn startups. But primarily, it tells the story of how traditional companies can apply innovation as an antidote to a radically changing environment, and how they can ACT on their Day After Tomorrow. It doesn’t just zoom in on WHAT you need to do in order to innovate, but also on HOW you can make innovation a reality in your organization.

If you are working in a traditional business or market, this keynote will inspire you to reinvent yourself like a Phoenix.
