How has our digital world influenced the manufacture, design, and delivery of products? What will our buying experiences be like in the future – a future when no firm is too big to fail?


Join us on Friday, April 12 for a live Twitter #CrowdChat – to discuss new markets in the digital economy with Irene Ng, Professor of Marketing and Service Systems and the Director of the International Institute for Product and Service Innovation at WMG, University of Warwick.

Irene leads several cutting-edge research projects in the trans-disciplinary understanding of value: creating, designing, pricing, and innovating based on value, as well as new economic/business models and value co-creation. Her latest book, Value & Worth: Creation of New Markets in the Digital Economy,  looks at consumer products and services in a new age of technological agility. Both an entrepreneur and an academic, Irene is passionate about the link between practice and research. She is an advisor to startups on new pricing and revenue models in digital businesses.
