This Issue: Raout Game Changers

At Presans, we build collective epiphanies, and our annual Raout event is part of this mission. New angles, new contacts, and new insights: this year's edition was a great success for our industrial open innovation community, and here I wish to extend my thanks to all those who were involved: the speakers who accepted our invitation: Frank, Charles and Vincent; the sponsors who supported us: CCI Essonne and Interaction Games; and the Presans team who made sure everything ran smoothly (you know who you are).

Take care and see you next month.

Raout Talks 2016: Disrupting education, politics and industry

This years talks were centered on the topic of disruption, but we opted for a broad scope to keep things interesting: 
  • Disruption in Education: MOOCs are books! (Frank Debouck)
  • Disruption in politics: the disintegration of the Eurozone (Charles Gave)
  • Disruption in the industry: industrial Internet will dwarf consumer Internet (Vincent Champain)
You can't have disruption without causing a bit of a stir, can you?

Profiled: Albert Meige, CEO & Enchanteur @ Presans

L'ADN magazine featured Albert as an "innovation superhero". They wanted to know why his title was “CEO & Enchanteur” and about what connects innovation and magic. I like that the wordplay in the title only works if you're French.
