Disrupt disrupt disrupt
A mantra for new business innovation or a hackneyed phrase already relegated to the mouths of tired executives who wouldn’t know disruption if it came and biffed them on the nose? Mark will talk about why it’s important to disrupt your business model but more importantly to disrupt it with purpose. He promises not to mention: Airbnb, Uber or Spotify.
