As global internet access has grown dramatically in recent years, global expansion is where the biggest opportunity lies. The opportunities to learn from these emerging markets & users have never been greater. In this keynote I offer perspectives on how:
Companies can some from anywhere – from Sweden or Nigeria
Ideas & Opportunties are everywhere – if you know where to look you can be inspired be them, learn and build on them.

Examples from Korea, Nigeria, Ghana, Kenya and Egypt.

With guest speaker Perihan Abou-Zei, co-founder of Qabila Media Productions and recipient of Best Female Entrepreneur in the Arab region from MIT Enterprise Forum.

So where are you looking - are you harvesting the global digital opportunities?
