With a grounding in real-world experience, and the best thinking from today’s tech and business luminaries, Tom explains how best to prepare as individuals and teams to meet the challenges of the future (including COVID-19).

  • Understand the concept and application of Intentional Evolution

The Future of Work: Business & Technology Luminaries on the Next 20 Years

This talk distills the thinking from tech and business luminaries as to the ways in which technology will impact our work and lives over the next two decades. Contributors include: Josh Bayliss (CEO Virgin), Tom Kelly (Founder IDEO), John Sculley (Business), Steve Wozniak (Apple), Nolan Bushnell (Tech Pioneer), Carol Smith (IBM Watson), Ed Fernandez (Singularity U), etc.

Nobel Prize physicist Niels Bohr was correct when he commented that, “Prediction is very difficult, especially if it’s about the future.” Nonetheless, we’re obligated to do our best to foresee how today’s emerging technology and trends will impact our work and lives in the foreseeable future.

The talk provides the best thinking from business & technology luminaries as to how emerging technology (incl AI and robotics) and business trends will impact our work and lives. The new revolution is of interest to any curious person involved in shaping the future.

Emerging technologies will give us the levers to disproportionately augment our work and thinking in unimagined ways. Having an understanding as to how these technologies and trends are expected to impact our work and lives gives us the opportunity to better prepare.

In deference to Niels Bohr, predictions about the next twenty years are difficult. But the benefits and practical value of looking forward nonetheless help guide our thinking about the tools we shape – before they inevitably shape us.

Learning Objectives

In this informative and session, audience members will be able to:

  • Understand why the future is not simply an extension of today’s trends
  • View the emerging technologies in the context of the industrial revolution
  • Learn how to stay abreast of what’s coming
  • Future-proof their company and career
  • Be open to new opportunities
  • Better prepare for the next twenty years
