LAST fortnight the Caloundra Chamber of Commerce featured Australia’s most awarded entrepreneur under 30, Jack Delosa.
Jack shared his insights into disruptive innovation and the need to future-proof your business.
Referring to the 1943 president of technology giant IBM, Thomas Watson, Jack insisted true innovation broke rank with normality and was misunderstood as people were inherently resistant to change.
“I think there is a world market for maybe five computers,” Thomas Watson infamously said.
This encapsulates the essence of disruptive innovation and holds significance to the modern business environment which has seen the rise of mammoth disruptors such as Airbnb and Uber.
One powerful sentiment was that businesses must always be forward thinking and can’t fall behind.
Another key element of Jack’s message was to ensure your products and services stem from customers’ needs and were guided by your business vision.
