Kicking off next week’s Kent 2020 Vision LIVE is an inspirational keynote from a man that knows all about business innovation, having spent more than twenty years decades at Virgin Group and played a key role in the launch of the high-profile Virgin Galactic venture.
As Brand Director at Virgin Group and President of the Virgin Galactic, Will Whitehorn helped to shape one of the world’s most instantly recognisable brands, serving as Richard Branson’s right-hand man while the company stamped its mark on everything from music, aviation, banking and health clubs, to trains, soft drinks, telecoms and even space travel!
In a fascinating opening keynote, Will explains how Virgin was able to innovate effectively within a hugely diverse range of industries, by thinking differently and leveraging the popular values of its core brand. Despite employing over 50,000 people globally, the company has managed to apply true entrepreneurial flair to every sector in which it operates, continually challenging established business practices to disrupt the status quo and create new customer-centric opportunities.
Since leaving Virgin Group, Will has gone on to play a key role in projects such as the space-age SSE Hydro arena in Glasgow and the ground-breaking driverless taxis already being tested in Milton Keynes (and due to go live in 2017) – showing that you don’t have to a risk-taking consumer brand to be at the forefront of innovation.
This is a truly unmissable session for every organisation that aims to leverage new ideas and innovative thinking, so make sure you book your place now for Wednesday 14th May.
