I have no doubt the world is going to see more change in the next 10 years than it has in the previous 50.

The great acceleration we are now seeing in technology innovation is creating a growing wave of change, challenge and, most of all, opportunity.

The power of technology will make us more productive, more efficient and give us access to a whole world of new ideas. And that’s exciting.
