Strategy in a World of Disruption
Shawn Kanungo is a strategist who operates at the intersection of creativity, business, and technology. He has been recognized nationally and globally for his work in the innovation space after 12 years of working at Deloitte — as an innovation strategist, he shows organizations how to disrupt before they are disrupted.
At Deloitte, Shawn’s mandate was to help corporate executives to better understand and plan for the opportunities and threats associated with disruptive innovation. Now, as General Partner of Queen & Rook Capital, he is focused on applying exponential technologies and new business models to mature businesses.
Shawn has worked hand-to-hand with hundreds of organizations on their journey to digital transformation, and he has adopted the concepts of behavioural economics, user-centered design, crowd-sourcing, artificial intelligence, drones, and film to help leaders and teams best position themselves to keep up, and keep ahead, with the rapid state of change.
Shawn’s work and interviews have been featured in Forbes, The Globe and Mail, The Guardian, CBC and CTV. In 2016, he was recognized as Avenue Magazine‘s “Top 40 Under 40”.
