Gary Woodman, the chief executive of the Worcestershire LEP will talk about Harnessing the 5G Force. The advanced connectivity of 5G and its low latency and higher speeds can transform how we live and work. It can be used to create smart cities which provide better and faster services, encourage economic recovery and resilience, help urban sustainability, and present a wide range of opportunities in the years ahead.

Meanwhile, Lee Marples, the co-founder of East Midlands creative agency Think3 will be part of the Creating a Culture of Disruption session. Businesses with the capacity to disrupt need a culture of innovation. But they also need a culture which can evolve as the company grows and matures. Equally, companies that have been forced into being disruptive – whether from Covid, competition or other challenges – must find a way to maximise the opportunities. Having and keeping the right skills and talent in the business, and building diverse, resilient teams with fantastic leaders is extremely difficult with the current war for talent. But it is a battle that you can’t afford to lose.

Saira, Mandy, Gary and Lee join around 30 other speakers confirmed for Disruptors Midlands, which will showcase the businesses already leading the charge towards innovation and the next generation of entrepreneurs and companies that are aiming to transform the regional, national and global economy.
