Adopted by all: breakthrough ideas and technologies

As part of this year’s CBI Annual Conference, we are giving members the exciting opportunity to attend some of our sessions in person and form part of a live audience.

The CBI Annual Conference is the UK’s flagship event in both the business and political calendar. This year's event will bring together influential leaders to explore ‘the economic vision of the nation’, and discuss the critical issues facing business.

Join CBI Director General Tony Danker and our guest speakers at Leonardo's magnificent flight hangar in Yeovil for a live panel discussion on how innovation and technology adopted by business can drive prosperity, with radical benefits across society.

We know that stronger R&D growth correlates with faster sales advancement; digital adoption tracks better revenue development; firms that are embracing AI tend towards higher profits. But progress can be tricky; digitisation, automation and AI adoption can feel daunting. ​

Join us at this session to experience the UK’s highest profile business conference and hear how innovation and technology can have a transformative effect on both our economy and society.

Confirmed speakers:

  • Norman Bone, Chair & CEO, Leonardo UK
  • Tony Danker, Director General, CBI
  • Nicola Downing, COO, Ricoh Europe
  • Rafel Jorda Siquier, Founder & CEO, Open Cosmos
