Coplin will explore how the new collaborative models of communication that have developed with the internet could translate to the business world. He will examine how organisations would benefit by dispensing with established norms and hierarchies to embrace new open models developed to accelerate the free flow of information. The session will go on to look at how the erosion of internal boundaries and shifting to a more human approach to technology can ultimately unlock businesses full potential.
Commenting on his keynote, Coplin said: A lot of the time, companies are chasing round trying to save costs but still trying to replicate the same things theyve always done, which invariably means they end up making concessions. Companies that use business models which pre-date digital lifestyles, risk missing significant opportunities. During this session, Im going to explain why businesses need to think differently about technology and working practices if they wish to make the most of the full opportunity that technology offers organisations, employees and customers.
