  • 22 Nov 2016
  • 12:00 PM - 2:00 PM (EST)
  • Brookfield Place, Suite 4400, 181 Bay Street, Toronto, Ontario, Canada M5J 2T3

The Japan Society is honoured and privileged to present a luncheon seminar, featuring Terry Stuart at the keynote speaker. 

About the speaker

Terry Stuart is Chief Innovation Officer, Deloitte Canada, a core member of the firm’s Global Innovation Network and a Partner with the Canadian Financial services consulting practice.

Terry applies his passion for change and the experience gained from more than 25 years in consulting to drive innovation in a number of start-up communities. He has overseen the opening of a branded ecosystem at Waterloo’s Communitech Hub, called d { } (pronounced D-space), placing Deloitte in direct contact with the potential of companies like Thalmic Labs and Mojio. Further, partnerships with local ecosystems like OneEleven, MaRS and Ryerson DMZ, and a global partnership with Singularity University, all contribute to Terry’s ability to bring the latest developments in technological innovation to his clients.

Terry is a strong advocate for change and advises his clients that all companies are ripe for technological disruption. His strength is challenging the thinking of traditional businesses to look at how previously unrelated companies will impact their revenue streams. For example, he has his clients thinking about how the autonomous vehicle will impact their insurance streams, or less obvious, real estate, shipping, and manufacturing.

Terry has helped drive our Future of Canada Research over the past 5 years, focusing on how Canada can dramatically enhance our national Productivity and Innovation as a country. His most recent focus of our Future Of Canada research was on Canadian preparedness for exponential technologies.

About the presentation

Companies are scaling and failing faster and more than ever. With the changing economic and demographic landscape at home and abroad, combined with the rapid onslaught of exponential technologies, what will this mean for the Canadian and Japanese organizations today and in the future? How can leaders develop new strategies to evaluate potential opportunities? Surviving and thriving in an age of disruption now requires a different toolkit. Challenge yourself to think differently and take advantage of the opportunities created.
