    Ross Pearce, Programme Manager at Callaghan Innovation has assisted many companies across Australasia to commercialise their know-how and deliver improved commercial results through good innovation and design practice. In November's professional development event, Ross will educate us on 'The hunt for value'. Against this backdrop, businesses must master innovation craft and discipline in order to create sustainable and profitable growth while avoiding terminal market disruptions.

    Ross' presentation will explore the innovation challenges facing New Zealand business survival and growth over the next decade, where due to the increasing rate of change and big bang disruptions fore sighting and predictive analytics are becoming more important than historic analysis.

    This presentation will explore the innovation challenges facing New Zealand business survival and growth over the next decade, where due to the increasing rate of change and big bang disruptions foresighting and predictive analytics are becoming more important than historic analysis.
