Leading speaker on disruption at Growth Summit

The man billed as a world-leading speaker on disruption and innovation, is coming to Australia and New Zealand for the March 2016 Growth Summit.

A media release from the summit organisers says that “disruption is a game-changer for Australian and New Zealand businesses across all industries in 2016, it is not a passing trend [but] the new ‘normal’. The rapid advancement of technology and globalisation, is allowing new business models to be introduced at an ever-increasing rate and with rapidly declining costs”.

Delivering the world’s best business thought leaders to entrepreneurs, executives and leaders of growing businesses, the Growth Summit is now in its 9th year and will feature Salim Ismail, Geoff Smart, Frances Frei and Joseph Grenny. This line up of speakers will share their ideas and insight on disruption, leadership, strategic differentiation and influential change.


  • Salim Ismail is the founder of Singularity University & author of Exponential Organisations: Why new organisations are ten times better, faster and cheaper than yours. This presentation is a must for anyone who wants to build a sustainable business in a fast changing world.
  • Geoff Smart, author of WHO and Powerscore and global expert on hiring teams: Only 10% of teams are running at full power. Smart will share insights on the three things that matter most to get the best results from your teams and you will leave the session with your team’s powerscore.
  • Frances Frei – Professor at Harvard Business School and author of Uncommon Service: In a volatile economy where the old rules of strategic advantage no longer hold true, service must become a competitive weapon, not a damage-control function. Frei explains how to differentiate from your competitors and win in your industry.
  • Joseph Grenny, author of Crucial Conversations and social scientist for business performance: Every leader wants to be an influencer – to create wide spread and lasting change. And yet, few leaders have the handful of techniques for getting others to change. What truly influential leaders understand is that influence has little to do with pep talks, bribes or system updates, but rather is the capacity to systematically and rapidly change a handful of key behaviours
