Some people are afraid that their idea can be stolen. I have never seen an idea run by itself. With all that it takes to innovate, it’s not the idea that makes the idea, it’s the team. Not the idea but the team is your most critical asset ever.

Setting Up a Digital Proof-of-Concept Factory initiative

"Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do" (Rob Siltanen and Lee Clow)

We want our ocean to be abundant with LIFE, not with the plastic pollution that is choking wildlife and the natural environment while poisoning us in the process.
In response, we call for a ban on single use plastic, which comprises 50% of plastic pollution.
We call on our favorite brands to find innovative alternatives to single use plastic products and packaging.
We call on their capacity for creativity, invention and innovation to develop a solution good for us and for our planet.

8 Keynotes
Owning what the customer journey is
e-Connect B2B e-Commerce conference
December 03, 2019
Want to be Customer-Centric?
What your customer need is the destination.
What your customer want is the journey.
Being Customer-Centric is not about focusing on the customer’s needs but on the customer’s journey.
The Customer-Centric mind shift is to get to know what your customer really want, to deliver what they need to master their journey, before they even think about what that could be, should be or looks like.

No business model lasts forever — They all have an expiry date.
Open Innovation Summit Berlin
November 20, 2019
Only 12% of the Fortune 500 companies included in 1955 were still on the list in 2017. On the remaining 88%, there are bankruptcies, mergers, acquisitions, as well as companies that still exist, but are simply not part of the Fortune 500 anymore. Going forward, in the context of this third industrial revolution, the risk is very high for any large company around the world to face a “Kodak moment”, to be overtaken by new digital offers and end up with a business that dies out.

Embracing that particular place: the Uncomfortable Zone.
Johnson
June 03, 2019
Seeking to work with people who look like us, act like us, think like us, went through the same experiences as ours, over and over again, while expecting different results, is the definition of insanity — It’s being regularly in contact with what seems different to us that gives us the opportunity to evolve, grow and develop completely new thought patterns, and finally create new things.

Industrial revolutions always precede disruptions. Only 12% of the Fortune 500 companies included in 1955 were still on the list in 2017. On the remaining 88%, there are bankruptcies, mergers, acquisitions, as well as companies that still exist, but are simply not part of the Fortune 500 anymore. Going forward, the risk is very high for any large company around the world to face a “Kodak moment”, to be overtaken by new digital offers and end up with a business that dies out. This fourth industrial revolution leaves organizations no choice but to adapt and innovate if they want to survive.

Accelerating new businesses at Thales Digital Factory
Nicolas Bry
April 08, 2019
Digital transformation at Thales involves digital offers, and digital ways of working, with Ux (User Experience) at the center. The challenge is to achieve a fine product, with a more agile way of working, and in line with TTM (Time To Market). There is a symmetry of attentions to create new offers and to think product differently: it involves a new mindset, starting from customers’ problems, and introducing technology as a solution to a problem.
