HACKING THE FUTURE

In a complex, unpredictable and fast-changing world, savvy leaders don’t stand still.

Hacking the Future brings together influential speakers from an impressively wide range of sectors for forward-thinking discussions and interactive conversations. Hear what these leading edge thinkers and doers have to say about the disruptive and defining trends that are driving innovation — and what those trends mean for you.

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT AT THIS YEAR’S WATERLOO INNOVATION SUMMIT

Disruptive technologies

With disruption comes opportunity. Unpack the potential of technologies including quantum computing, artificial intelligence and the Internet of Things — technologies that transform everything, from how we work and communicate to how we treat disease.

The adaptation imperative

From wild weather to political upheaval to the rise of social media, major forces are shaking economies, ecosystems and everyday life. Whether your focus is the natural world, the built environment or corporate Canada, business as usual doesn’t cut it today. Learn how to boost agility, scale up change and adapt faster than ever before.

People and policies

Today, the organizational playbook is being rewritten. How do smart companies, governments and institutions keep pace in our changing world? How can you attract the right people, cultivate potential and create an environment that fosters innovation? Our speakers have the answers you’re looking for.
