What Nintendo teaches us about disruption and innovation

Presented By
Simon is an entrepreneur, broadcaster, and author. Obsessed with network science, fintech, and storytelling, Simon has spoken at over 500 conferences globally on disruptive innovation.

We grew up with Donkey Kong, Super Mario Bros. and other quirky games that defined a generation, but the history of Nintendo stretches back to the 19th century and the manufacture of playing cards, commissioned by the emperor of Japan, and long before computers were a thing. Since then Nintendo has launched hotel chains, taxi services, and a host of other businesses as it evolved with what entertainment meant for diverse cultures through the most disruptive century in human history. In this fascinating talk, Simon uses the story of Nintendo to unpack key practices in unlocking innovation, evolving businesses and dealing with disruptive change.
