9:40 AM KEYNOTE PANEL: Disruptors, Not Reactor—Why Self-Funding is the Key to a Successful Transformation
Transformations can take time and the challenge of producing near-term results is frequently the reason they stall. The most successful programs are self-funding: early wins remove costs from the system, and simplify the business, producing savings that then fund medium-term initiatives to innovate, to change the trajectory of the customer experience, and to support some of the boldest actions. Through a self-funding business case, a transformation has the best chance of achieving sustainability.

· Disrupt existing markets—the importance of being outward-focused in your operations and investing in the digital future
· Customer consolidation—how do you manage?
