Innovation and technologies – social, mobile, analytics, cloud, Internet of Things - continue to disrupt the business world and our daily lives. 

Join us as we hear from a panel of successful Hong Kong based business pioneers changing the landscape of their industries. Steve Monaghan, the Chairman and CEO of GenLife will talk about how technology is changing the insurance industry, Duncan Wong from CryptoBLK will be discussing the impact of blockchain technology, and LalaMove’s Blake Larson will talk about his experience in disrupting app-based on-demand logistics in Hong Kong.
