Unprecedented levels of connectivity and convergence are changing the way business is conducted across industries. In fact, the cross-pollination of technologies, ideas and processes is rapidly giving shape and definition to the once illusionary trillion-dollar market.
To explore the immense opportunities and challenges presented by a converged marketplace, Frost & Sullivan brings together a global network of visionaries and thought leaders at its annual Growth, Innovation, and Leadership (GIL) meet. Scheduled to be held on 30 October at the Monte Carlo Bay Hotel & Resort, Monaco, the prestigious event is expected to attract a broad spectrum of C-suite executives from different verticals.
The summit will be headlined by the theme of ‘Disrupt, Collapse & Transform’. In addition to presentations on smart cities and connected living, there will be interactive think tanks on industry convergence and mega trends, while 360 Degree Industry Perspectives will place in context the ways in which connectivity and convergence will affect the next generation of businesses. The day will culminate in Frost & Sullivan’s ‘Excellence in Best Practices Awards Banquet’, recognising best-in-class organisations across various sectors for their game-changing innovations, services and solutions.
Adding heft to the already impressive line-up of keynote speakers is Jean Castellini, the State Minister of Finance & Economy, Monaco. Other external speakers who will share their visionary perspectives include industry luminaries such as Olivier Courtade, CEO of M2M Solutions; Erik Grab, Vice-President of Strategic Anticipation, Innovation & Sustainable Development at Michelin Group; Martin Peronnet, CEO of Monaco Telecom and Alstom Grid's Rodolphe de Beaufort, Smart Grid Marketing Director.
“This one-day congress will give delegates a unique opportunity to renew their passion, fuel their creativity, and gain access to best practices, tools and strategies that will drive growth and inspire innovation,” said Senior Partner and Global Head of Growth Consulting Jan E Kristiansen. “As a result, they can benchmark and strengthen their company’s strategies and achieve unparalleled levels of success.”
With its high-power panel of speakers, eclectic award recipients, and other distinguished invitees, GIL 2014 is an ideal platform for delegates to engage extensively in peer-to-peer networking and cultivate commercially valuable relationships across industries.
