IDEALondon’s ‘Interesting People’ event, chaired by Cisco UK and Ireland CEO Phil Smith – Tuesday 7th July 2-3 pm

July 7, 2015 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

You are warmly invite to attend the first of our ‘Interesting People’ events broadcast over the NVI network.


The event will be hosted by Phil Smith, Cisco UK and Ireland CEO and we are delighted to announce that we will be joined virtually by Dame Ellen McArthur to hear about her entrepreneurial journey – how she saved up lunch money in order to sail to then breaking the world record for circumnavigating the globe.  We will discuss the Circular Economy as a lens for disruptive innovation and getting business on board; establishing and scaling the Ellen McArthur Foundation and the lessons learned from that.  We will hear about emerging trends and technologies and how you can get involved with the Disruption Innovation Festival.


Questions will be very welcome from across the NVI network, both during and at the end of the session.
