How to think like a startup. 

Managing change is one of the biggest challenges facing leaders today. In the era of digital disruption, artificial intelligence and robotics – existing businesses face a lot of pressure to act like a startup, but there is no clear roadmap. Innovation is essential for those that wish to thrive over the long term, but the pressure for success today often gets in the way of building for tomorrow.

Tim Kastelle, Associate Professor in Innovation and MBA Director at UQ Business School, and Faith Forster, Founder of KPMG UpStarts, will discuss some of the considerations in bringing ideas to life.

Join us to discuss how the most innovative organisations today are thinking like startups, and what this means in a digitised world:
