  • Host: Tony Markwell Grant Thornton Brisbane, Queensland Australia (map)

You are invited to join members of the Executive Connection for our next speaker session, led by Matt Tice, on "Insurgence: Is Your Organisation Disruption Proof?"

This special guest day brings together two of Brisbane's top TEC groups to hear Matt Tice, one of Asia-Pacific's leading exponents of strategy design and execution, leadership and innovation and one of TEC's top ranked speakers. 

TEC members are executives and business owners from a diverse range of industries who meet monthly to support each other and address the challenges of leading in these increasingly uncertain times.


In his previous presentation to TEC 35 and TEC 44 Matt focused on the area of Strategy Design and Execution, drawing on his collaboration with Kaplan and Norton and the Balanced scorecard as well as building on the Key Questions at the heart of the Best Seller "Playing to Win" and concepts from "Blue Ocean Strategy"

In this presentation, specifically designed for TEC members, Matt will build on these themes with a focus on Business Model Innovation. As a founder of a company called "Insurgence", his vision is to help existing businesses transition from being "Incumbents" to being "Insurgents".  He will help members and guests address the most pressing questions all businesses leaders need to face up to:

  • How robust is my business model to disruptive change?

  • What can I, as a leader, do about it? 

This session will cover practical advice for business leaders facing accelerated change in their markets, how to defend against would be insurgents and how to attack established incumbents.


Matthew Tice is the Chief Executive Officer of Insurgence, a firm dedicated to helping organisations to navigate (and lead) through disruptive change.  Insurgence helps clients at the nexus of strategy, innovation and leadership to accelerate growth by discovering new paths to market and building disruptive business models. 

He is a leading advisor to CEOs across Asia-Pacific in the areas of strategy design and execution, leadership, innovation and governance. He has worked with many of the world's leading thinkers including Drs Robert Kaplan and David Norton, Jim Collins (author of Good to Great), James Moore (author of The Death of Competition), Francis Goulliart (author of Transforming the Organisation and a contributor to Blue Ocean Strategy), Venkat Ramaswamy (co-writer with CK Pralahad of the Future of Competition) and Dr. Harry Lasker, a leading thinker in new media and knowledge management.

Matt has worked with hundreds of organisations globally and in the Asia-Pacific region to create value using practical and innovative methods that breakthrough incumbent thinking. He has worked as a senior advisor with many of the region's leading organisations including BHP Billiton, Toyota, Bank of Tokyo Mitsubishi, Canon, Telstra, Merck, BaoSteel, Maybank, the central Banks of Malaysia and Indonesia, and several emerging market National Governments. 

TEC members are high-integrity business leaders from a diverse range of industries who meet monthly to support each other and address the challenges of leading in these increasingly uncertain times.
