Industry leaders, friends and alumni of The University of Queensland are invited to attend the next installment of the 'Leaders of Influence' series featuring Dr David Noon, FTSE, Chief Operating Officer, Orica Monitor and GroundProbe. 

Dr Noon will deliver a thought-provoking keynote titled 'Engaging with Innovation and Disruption'.

Engaging with Innovation and Disruption
There are numerous examples where innovative business models, combined with technology disruptions, have “Netflixed” existing behemoths to create new mega-behemoths - eg. Blockbuster peaked at US$5B market cap and is no more, whilst Netflix today sits on a US$160B market cap! Similar examples exist in the employment marketplace, where ‘routine’ careers have been displaced through automation or digital disruption – what has happened to librarians, secretaries, and stockbrokers?
