    Suneet Singh Tuli Keynote Topics

    The main ability that someone must have to be part of an innovation department, beyond their technical knowledge is their capacity for disruptive thinking or lateral thinking. This characteristic, so sought after by companies, is the ability of people to think of different solutions for the same problems, something essential to achieve innovation in any sector. In this keynote one of the greatest specialists in social innovation and disruptive thinking, Suneet Singh Tuli, will teach us how we can prepare ourselves to think outside of the box and the techniques that will help our non-trained mind to get out of its comfort zone.

    When we talk about teaching, we always tend to focus on our experience and we tend to globalize the situations that are daily for us, creating an image of an egalitarian world that is very far from reality. There are 300 million people in the world who cannot read or write, not because they don't want to but because they can't afford an education. In this keynote, Suneet Singh Tuli, one of the world's greatest talents in social innovation with initiatives such as the launch of a tablet for only $35 in 2012 that sought to give the opportunity to train millions of people by giving them access to the Internet and notions of computing, will talk about the future of teaching and what role exactly new technologies will play in it.

    The corporate social responsibility of a company is those actions that it performs in a selfless way in order to help creating a world for society. This little-known section of companies, since not all of them have it, has been gaining prominence due to the media repercussion that some of these actions have come to have for companies. In this talk,Suneet Singh Tuli, an entrepreneur who has always worked in its companies' corporate social responsibility and who has evangelized it from the beginning, will tell us what we should take into account when opening this department and how to come from it, social innovation initiatives that gain a lot of attention like the tablet he launched in 2012 for just under $35 USD that was sponsored by the United Nations.
