There is no more disruptive force in business and society today than tech- nology. This Report highlights the key insights and action decisions arising from RSI’s rst speaker series event for 2016. To discuss the state of change and where we are headed next, on Jan. 28 RSI brought together sector disruptors Troy Wright (founder and CEO of online lender Lendi ed Inc.), Dr. Josipa Petrunic (CEO of the Canadian Urban Transit Research & Innovation Consortium), and Jeff Dennis (Entrepreneur-in-Residence, Fasken Martineau DuMoulin LLP).
FinTech, CleanTech and LegalTech are just a few of hundreds of new “tech-suffix” sectors that are changing the way people connect and do business with each other.
They resonate with the values and principles of our sharing economy, multi-generational expectations and the increasing call for transparency and responsiveness. Although relatively new, Lendi ed Inc., CUTRIC and Fasken Martineau’s Entrepreneur-in- Residence are true game-changers.
The discussion was artfully moderated by Ted Griffith of Campbell Strategies, an industry leader in public and government relations. The symposium provided practical insights for advancing the sustainability and leadership of business and society, and preparing for a more connected future.
