Event description
Discover how Amazon drives a culture of innovation - connect & network with Advisory Board Centre members.

About this Event

We welcome Advisory Board Centre Members and invited guests to discover the way that Amazon has built a culture of innovation.

Customers often ask how they can innovate like Amazon. From its humble beginnings as a startup in a garage, Amazon has not only innovated across e-commerce, but also introduced new businesses that, at first glance, don't seem to fit the model.

Over the years, Amazon has gotten very good at taking hard problems and finding an easier way.

In this interactive session facilitated by Paul Woodward from Amazon Web Services, we will describe how Amazon use this mental model and mechanisms to help innovate with the Digital Innovation Program. We'll also share with you how Amazon organises for innovation with its mechanisms, architecture, culture, and organisation.

You will leave inspired and empowered with insider knowledge on how Amazon supports innovations that drive a commercial outcome.

Current Advisory Board Centre members are encouraged to invite 1 guest to join them at this event. This may include a client or professional associate.

Drinks and Nibbles will be provided.

This is a Brisbane based event......we look forward to hosting similar events with Amazon in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and Adelaide in 2020.
