On 23rd January, we’re meeting at the stunning Andaz Hotel, 1901 Ballroom in London to discussion and debate for the first time in 2018. If you’re a senior business leader of a small or medium company we’d be delighted to welcome you.

Topic: Is your Business Model ready for 2018?

In 2017 we learned just how important it was to have an innovative, digital business model. It is paramount – not only to ensure fast-growth and a competitive edge, but for survival.

 

Indeed, new research by the World Economic Forum, found that failure to adopt a digitally orientated business model was the primary reason why over half of the companies on the Fortune 500 have disappeared since 2000.

 

The digital revolution is here, and no industry is safe.

 

Indeed, a joint IMD and Cisco initiative, found over seventy-five percent of executives now believe the impact of disruption on their industries will be “major” and “transformative.” This is a huge increase from 2015, when less than one percent of executives agreed.

 

The difference in two years is great, and shows how your business’s survival is centred around having an innovative business model that can adapt and confront new digital competition.

 

So, have you bridged the gap between acknowledging the need to transform, and actually achieving transformation? Is your business model ready?

 

With change on the horizon, the opportunities for agile and pioneering SMEs are huge.

 

There are countless examples of innovative business models disrupting industries, securing fast-growth and a competitive advantage in the market.

 

AirBnb has reinvented hospitality and is now more valuable than Hilton. Skyscanner and Uber have disrupted the transportation industry, Netflix the entertainment industry, and Just Eat the food industry. All have displaced industry giants, with their business models of agile services, flexible subscriptions, digital application, and proactive engagement. And your business has the potential to emulate the success of these businesses.  

 

Digital transformation by SMEs in other industries is inevitable. New digital technologies such as big data, artificial intelligence, machine learning, cloud computing, and block chain make it possible every day. Seeking the initiative and innovating your business model in today’s digital world will secure fast-growth and a competitive edge. Complacency is not an option.  

 

Join the 360° Club on Tuesday 23rd January at 6pm for our first event of 2018. We’ll be turning to this topic, alongside drinks, networking and canapes. We’ll be asking:

 

  • Is your business model ready for 2018?
  • Is your business well positioned to maximise the opportunities presented by new technology for driving future growth and competitiveness?
  • And how can you, as a senior business leader, drive a successful digital strategy?
