“My primary interest is how a physical working environment shapes experience, not only in terms of design but how much control over the environment can be offered to individuals and teams.”
Head of New Incubations, Konica Minolta Business Innovation Center
Paul has worked in the IT and telecommunications business for over 30 years. Until moving to Konica Minolta, Paul was involved in the market research and analysis profession covering retail, SMEs, European financial services, business consulting and IT services. It was at IBM that he came across the term “innovation” as a way to build value into existing client contracts and decided to pursue this as a career by joining the Tokyo-headquartered technology firm Konica Minolta. In the past 5 years, he’s been involved in startup networks, equity and loan management, incubation management and client co-innovation projects. It was in this role that Paul became fascinated by the acres of academic publications on working environments which seemed barely recognised by business.
With a longer term goal of developing a science around workplace, Paul will share some early thoughts on how to build new digital services which are relevant to people working in physical locations.
With 20+ years in the IT industry, Milan has built a passion for business-led innovation, and as the head of strategy and business development for emerging technology within the Konica Minolta Business Innovation Centre, Europe, he is responsible for the overall strategy for developing new customer-centric product and services incubations, as well as to lead the transformation of the internal corporate innovation culture.
Milan’s areas of expertise include innovation management, business model innovation, understanding cultural paradigms and creating a framework to provide a structure & governance for on-going innovation.
Prior to joining Konica Minolta, Milan spent 16 years with Electronic Data Systems (EDS) / Hewlett Packard (HP), of which the last 7 years were within the office of the CEO, supporting the set up of one of the largest global enterprise innovation programmes in the IT Services industry.
Milan is also an Associate of the Centre for Technology, Innovation & Engagement at Leeds Business School (UK), where he delivers a lecture on innovation & strategy to MBA students.
