Connective Insight helps organisations develop and implement new strategies and thought leadership to significantly enhance their industry position and performance in telecoms and connected technologies. Key topics: strategy & purpose, where new business models and technologies meet, and stakeholder dynamics.

The global economy is in transition: climate change and geopolitical power shifts are creating new tensions and opportunities.


All organisations and individuals are looking to make the best use of their available resources (e.g., time, money, land, carbon, etc.), and connected technologies (e.g., communications, AI and automation) are providing a new toolkit to achieve this, alongside new ecosystems and business models. At STL Partners, we called this the Coordination Age, as customers want outcomes that are often now delivered by multiple parties.

One of Connective Insight's goals is to help organisations to refine their own vision, purpose and strategy to succeed in the context of this and breakout new forces such as 6G and AI & Automation.
