    The extra hour – How piloted driving transforms behavior and business

    Nils Wollny - Audi

    Car brands like Audi, as well as new players like Google, are working hard to put drivers in the comfortable position of not having to drive themselves anymore. Piloted driving will, for sure, revolutionise traffic control and make driving a lot safer. But it will also change the way we commute and travel as we will gain one essential thing: time. Commuters spend about one hour per day driving to work and back. Soon this time will no longer be wasted on operating the car. Audi’s Head of Digital Business Nils Wollny will give you some clues on how winning a lot of spare time might impact consumer behaviour and business models alike.

    StoryMythos - storytelling for Brands, Business and for You

    Shane Meeker - Procter & Gamble

    Exploring how the idea of story can be used across an infinite array of business narratives.
    A child of the 70’s, my fascination with the power of story started with an epic and influential set of hero’s…Batman and Luke Skywalker. Both would show me the importance of adventure and that hard work, taking risks and learning from failure were all instrumental in finding any worthwhile treasure.  In 1997 I graduated and started my career as a Design Manager at The Procter and Gamble Company. For 15 years I would help lead the design strategy and execution for billion dollar brands like Tide, Gain, Crest, Olay and Pampers. I loved the world of Design but always had a desire to try my hand in Hollywood. So, I decided to write a movie screenplay. After spending years studying, researching and immersing myself in the worlds of Hollywood, mythology and fairy tales I began to understand a deeper human truth…that the art and science of story could be used as a problem solving tool in any industry. Story was not just limited to the traditional venues of entertainment. I began to look at brands, companies and products in an entirely different way.  Consumers became valiant Hero’s and brands became wise Mentors bestowing magical items called “products” that would help our hero’s on their journeys. Story was a way to understand our hero, the obstacles they would face and the everyday treasures that motivated them to endure and press-on. The idea of story opened my eyes to a totally new world of creative approaches. 

    From there I developed storyMYTHOS, a collection of fundamental story principles and tools based on mythology and narrative techniques studied across the centuries from Aristotle to Joseph Campbell to Hollywood. This approach can help with everything from culture building to creative problem solving to inspiring communications. 

    For 12 years now I have been teaching story inside and outside the company, helping hundreds of teams, brands and organizations develop the stories they want to create and tell. Companies like Walt Disney, Starwood Hotels, Columbia Sportswear, American Express and Anheuser Busch. I also teach graduate story-based classes at The University of Cincinnati’s DAAP School of Design and the Illinois Institute of Technology’s Masters of Design program. Some of my story approach is featured in Jonathan Cagan and Craig M. Vogel's book Creating Breakthrough Products: Revealing the Secrets that Drive Global Innovation (2nd Edition). 

    Today I am the Procter & Gamble Company Historian & Corporate Storyteller where I research and share the stories and insights from the rich 178 year company history while also continuing to deliver my storyMYTHOS workshops and presentations around the world.  My love and understanding of this idea called “story” is now my career and I continue to research it, turning what I learn into new methodologies and tools. My personal Hero’s Journey continues and, just like when I was a kid, I continue to find most of my inspiration from the fantastic stories of stage, page and screen.

    Big Data: Making an impact

    Internet technology and access to information have proven to be far more effective in civil innovation than traditional forms of social and political engagement. Google helps people make an impact, by providing tools based on its own products or by opening up data that others can use. After the last Haiti earthquake, for example, Google made available new map data, providing insight in distressed areas and people in need. This information allowed NGOs to better deploy their personnel and resources.

    Amal Graafstra - Technologist, author, RFID

    Biohacking is enabling the next phase of evolution. Since the dawn of humanity, we've been finding and creating ways to extend our capabilities. Today, many biohackers are maximizing performance by applying hacker ethics and scientific methods to experimental dietary and drug regimens, while others are expanding their experience of the world and their ability to interact with it by directly implanting technology into their bodies. Very soon, medical professionals will have to deal with patients who wish to remove perfectly healthy body parts to replace them with better performing prosthesis, or install various devices which enhance perfectly working, healthy anatomy. What an exciting time to be alive.

    Innovation in emerging markets. Sourcing Growth where Growth Takes Place

    Alisée de Tonnac - Seedstars World

    Emerging Markets, considered for many years as areas of cheap labour and outsourced manufacturing, are catching up with regards to product and business innovation. Seedstars World have made it their business to source growth (innovation) where growth takes place (Emerging Markets).

    The fact is, growth in developed markets has slowed and in part this is because of saturation whilst innovation is especially spread out and fast-paced in emerging markets. Seedstars World act as a thoughtful local intelligence tasked with spotting trends and quickly capturing meaningful innovation from startups.

    Alisee de Tonnac, CEO and Co-founder of the organisation joins us to discuss the justification of their mission; how it works, who the upcoming tech start-ups are, the importance of externalised innovation and collaboration and what the next big trends are across consumers, data-driven technology and new and existing industries

    Technology is taking over our society. Appliances, houses, cars and cities are becoming smart, while people deploy these new technologies to ideate, design, build, organize and share what's on their mind. Fab Labs, Wet Labs, aker Spaces and Coding Clubs are the places where an increasing number of smart people meet. Businesses, however, seem to have a hard time incorporating these new technologies into their products and services, allowing disruptors from abroad to become the new masters of their marketplaces.

    Smart people, open technologies and sharing platforms provide both the means and the inspiration to move forward and secure your place in the information society. It's due time for companies to join the third industrial revolution and to become smart about their businesses.

    We live in the era of media abundance where people select which communication is relevant for them and skip (or even block) what is not. In online advertising it’s crucial to develop relevant communication and connect with a relevant audience. Collecting and analyzing behavioral data helps us to do so. But is it enough?

    It’s time to fight, forgo or simply forget the lines between touch-points, channels and devices, and put the focus back where it belongs: on the customer! Customers don’t think about the lines between touch-points—they just browse, shop, read and react when and where they see fit. As channels converge, marketers must use technology, data and insights to help them reach customers in a seamless manner.

    Digital transformation; How speed and relevance will help you stay ahead in a digital world

    Edgard Beckand - Mirabeau

    Within industries that were ahead of the digitalisation – such as media and retail – the pressure on older market leaders has increased rapidly due to newcomers, and the gap between top dog and second place grows wider and wider.

    Why are some companies able to anticipate the ever-changing consumer expectations, when others can’t? Simply being as quick as a competitor is not enough: companies that lag behind have to narrow the gap before they can move forward. 

    The expectation is that customer experience, even more than product and price, will be the competitive advantage of the future; there are strong competitors in the market and a continuous adaptation of the organisation is required. 

    What’s needed is an overarching company-wide approach that focuses on two main factors to move a business in the right direction.

    It’s not your journey it’s theirs.  The customer journey redefined.

    Fred van Westerop - Thunderhead

    "Buzzword - an item of jargon, fashionable at a particular time.”

    Name-dropping 'journeys' and 'engagement’ has become the fashion. But when do these “buzzwords” stop being misappropriated jargon?

    Only by realising that a customer journey isn’t a static process and by acknowledging that the customer is in charge do they become fit for purpose.

    In this session we’ll debunk customer journey myths, introduce the customer-managed journey concept and look at who’s doing it right.
