The second annual Disruption Summit Europe returns to London on 4th September celebrating the individuals and organisations challenging the status quo, and utilising digital technologies to innovate and revolutionise industries.
Emerging technologies and innovative new business models are profoundly impacting the modern world, forcing organisations to make increasingly complex decisions in increasingly tight timeframes. Such rapid change can make disruption seem like a major threat to business, Disruption Summit Europe shows it can be a major advantage.
Speakers at the very forefront of innovation
This year DSE 2018 in partnership with PA Consulting Group brings together an even more diverse group of innovators, disruptors and change makers to share their experiences of Turning Disruption From A Threat Into An Opportunity.
We’re excited to announce our first 20 speakers. Speakers representing organisations that have placed disruption and innovation at the very heart of their organisations.
David Sharp, Head of Technology 10X at Ocado will share some of the innovative technologies that enable the Ocado Smart Platform – both now and in the future. Global Head of Business Innovation at Telefonica, Isabela Chick will outline why innovation is so important within a corporate setting, and the amazing Professor Koen Kas talks us through the next big revolution, Genomics.
Building on the success of DSE 2017
Rob Prevett, CEO of D/SRUPTION magazine and founder of Disruption Summit Europe saw the need for a new type of event where Europe’s leading innovators could connect, share ideas and collaborate.

Connect with your tribe
2017 delegates enthused about the diversity of our audience, from start-ups to some of the worlds leading organisations.
Here’s what Sanjay Patel, Global Innovation at Coca-Cola had to say about last year’s event:
“I have been to a lot of conferences in the last few years and this truly stood out one of the best! The variety of speakers and immersion through the physical stimulus was mind stretching to say the least. My main reason to attend was the opportunity to network with like-minded people and this delivered by the truck load.”
DSE brings together business leaders driving change and navigating a new path for business. New for 2018 you’ll be encouraged to connect with your peers through our dedicated networking app, share ideas over lunch, and cement relationships at D/SRUPTION Networking Drinks.
