"The fundamental unit of disruption is the individual." – Whitney Johnson

The term "disruptive innovation" was coined in 1995 by Clayton Christensen of Harvard Business School. It refers to an innovation that "creates new markets by discovering new categories of customers." Some of the most notable disruptive innovations to date include Uber, Airbnb, Skype and Netflix.

The principles behind disruptive innovation don't just apply to products and companies - they can also apply to individuals. Join us for a conversation with Whitney Johnson, co -founder of Rose Park Advisors and author of Disrupt Yourself, on how to make the power of disruptive innovation work in your career and in your personal life.
