It’s hard to believe how quickly the time passes – it seems like just yesterday I was standing on the stage at Innovate2019, feeling immense gratitude for the opportunity to share my perspective on the revolutionary changes taking place for global manufacturers.

I want to sincerely thank all the delegates from around the world for joining this epic, thought-provoking, and inspirational leadership summit in Stockholm – a list of delegates that truly read like a “who’s who” of global manufacturing leaders. Together, we outlined the journey to emerging subscription-based business models for manufacturers who must sell products-as-services to remain competitive in this new era of rapid transformation.

Thankfully, I’m extremely pleased to announce that the Innovate journey does not end there. The response we received was so positive that we knew there was only one thing we could do: continue to provide opportunities for like-minded manufacturing leaders to gather and discuss this critical transformation. More details will be released in the coming weeks, but in the meantime, please visit https://syncroninnovate.com/ for the latest information.

My hope is that every person who attended Innovate2019 will look back on it as a tipping point – a moment where decisions were made that will forever alter the landscape of their business, and more broadly, the world as we know it. Thank you to the change-agents – the history-makers – who will lead the product-as-service revolution, providing more value to customers and increasing the sustainability of products that shape our world on a daily basis.
