As part of a global team, Olivia leads the development of Bosch’s work with cities on the future of mobility and urban innovation. Prior to that, she was a consultant for 12 years focused on how long-term macro trends disrupt traditional industries. An active participator in the debate and work on how we can achieve safe, clean and accessible travel in cities, Olivia has a strategic understanding of city mobility and associated business models.

Course Description:

How do we ensure that cities of now and the future are optimised for the people who live and work in them? The answer goes far beyond simply collecting more data; rather it's about using the wealth of insights accumulated by public organisations and private companies to identify and solve very real problems.

Attendees will leave this session with a better understanding of how to:

  • An understanding of how advanced data usage has improved aspects of city living across the world

  • Information about how a model of co-creation can work in practice

  • Ideas for how individuals - as workers or citizens - can shape the face of urban innovation
