Chief Disruptor Spring Connector

Tuesday 7 March 2023 │ 18:00 - 21:00 GMT │ In person

“Fail Fast, Fail Often” is a mantra that has been synonymous with disruptive innovation across business and technology. However the term has also been subject to recent and heated debate. Some might say the term, intended to encourage an iterative approach (think SpaceX), has been confused with ‘lean’ or ‘agile’? Others might say that, at a time of economic downturn and uncertainty, there is no room for failure? Either way, everyone’s well experienced in the department of failure.

Join us and other Chief Disruptor members for Failure as a Catalyst for Disruption (or more failure?), the theme for our Spring Connector! As usual, we’ll be bringing together members from the likes of HSBC, Populous, GSK, DP World, Tesco and many more to explore contemporary themes in the world of technology (with a glass of something bubbly). A great opportunity for new and existing members of the Chief Disruptor community to connect, learn and disrupt with one another and we look forward to having you join us!
