Guest Speaker

Anthony Lilley OBE

This year our guest speaker is Anthony Lilley OBE. Anthony is joining us to present a stimulating talk on technological disruption in a variety of industries.

In a diverse career, Anthony has witnessed first-hand the effects of technology on a range of industries, and has been involved in shaping many of them.

Describing himself as a ‘positive sceptic’ and ‘an early adopter with a bin-full of old gadgets’ Anthony will look at what the future holds. With examples of how industries and businesses have adapted (both successfully and unsuccessfully) to changes in technology, environment and consumer expectations, he also addresses our lives and business strategy – digital adoption is no longer new but normal. The question now is what you do with it.
