The Percolator Sessions: How is digital disruption impacting all sectors of the economy?

The Business Clinic at Northumbria University, 97 New Bridge Street, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE1 2SW

The Percolator Sessions is a programme of breakfast sessions that are part of a University initiative to bring together the Wealth and Private Client Management sector to discuss some of the biggest issues facing our society.

With successful digital disrupters such as Uber, Airbnb and Amazon dramatically changing the face of transport, hospitality and retail in recent years, the event aims to explore what future technological advances could take place and how this could benefit business in the North East and across the UK.

During the Digital Disruption event three specific challenges will be explored – the future of money, the future of identity, and the future of design and construction.

You will also have the opportunity to discuss the implications of these topics on the wealth management sector.

Speakers will include:

Professor Lars Holmquist, Professor of Innovation

Professor John Vines, Professor of Design

Professor Glenda Cook, Professor of Nursing


A light breakfast of tea/coffee, pastries and fresh fruit will be served at 8am.
