Event description

Description

Work in big business? Wondering how you can enable a culture of innovation within your organisation? Delve into all the hot topics of intrapreneurship over a hot breakfast with One10 and EY.

Our business landscape is changing at a rapid pace. Only one in ten of the Fortune 500 companies that predominated 60 years ago still exist today. Pretty grim, huh? With the rise of disruptive startups like Facebook, Uber and Airbnb, sometimes it's hard to believe that the capacity already exists within our organisations to change the game.

In the race for growth and prosperity, big businesses are neglecting the need to nurture a culture of innovation and social intrapreneurship. Future thinking employees will soon turn into corporate escapees if their strengths aren't realised and celebrated. The indoctrination of risk aversion among corporates is a missed opportunity to transform intractable problems into scalable solutions, for a better world.

So how might we innovate from the inside out? How will we amplify game-changing voices within our organisations? How can we turn the tide and maintain our relevance within a new kind of economy? How do we use our businesses as a force for good?

Bring along your questions, theories and ideas, and join in an open conversation with our expert panel of intrapreneurs, corporate executives, and agile Forbes 500 business leaders. Tweet your questions to @OneTenTeam with the hashtag #One10, and we'll add it to our growing list.

See you at 7:30am sharp for a hot breakfast and inciting start to your day.

Who will be there?
