Great couple of days in Cambridge, where we were co-hosting the first Breakthrough Symposium with the UN Global Compact – as part of their annual series of LEAD company events. Co-facilitated with David Christie of Innovation Arts – and with support from our partners Atlas of the Future and Hüman After All.
Slightly taken aback by the venue, to start with, but in the end it worked well. And the Symposium’s first morning coincided with the announcement of the US presidential elections result. Our American friends were in total shock, but we kept the juggernaut rolling.
The first morning involved a trip across to PA Consulting‘s R&D site in Melbourne, which covered everything from from drone-monitored farming through to 3D printed biscuits, and was an invigorating start to the process.
Met some great people – and moderated three panels, including people from the Braskem, Covestro, Ellen MacArthur Foundation, Enel, iDisrupted, Provenance, PA Consulting, Singularity University and Tradeshift.
Great visual capture of the event, with a number of rounds of discussion groups on the floor above, but I’ll aim to distil those in a later blog. So more anon.
