“100% business as usual = 100% chance of death”

Jan Bartscht is a futurist and innovation consultant; he specialises in helping leaders fight disruptive innovation by guiding them to transform their organisations and people into agile digital innovators.

Co-founder & MD of Leadapreneur, a boutique innovation consultancy based in Kuala Lumpur, Jan sees first-hand the reality of innovate or die in his daily work. He consistently sees 2 kinds of incumbent firms; those who are being disrupted and those who don’t know they are being disrupted. In recognition of this, Jan has built his expertise in awakening management and senior leaders to today’s ‘Innovate or Die’ reality, engaging them to discuss how they need to change and driving them to transform their people, business and culture. 

His keynote ‘Innovate or Die’ engages audiences to understand the astonishing scale, speed and consequences of today’s disruptive innovation. Using stories and detailed industry examples, Jan enables managers and senior leaders to understand what disruptive innovation is, why it’s killing companies and how they can transform themselves to become an agile digital innovator before it’s too late.
