The Whakatane forum group from the Institute of Directors held their last event last night at our offices premises. Ben Lambourne presented about the 4th Industrial Revolution explaining how large amount of data and machine learning are changing the way we do business in an ever-increasing pace.
His presentation was highly informative and made us not only think about cyber security, but also about the potential disruption of traditional business models. Ben’s was the 6th of a series of stimulating discussions about decidedly relevant topics including governance structures, mussel farming and the construction of a dairy plant.
The Whakatane forum will be running for a second year in 2020.
