What’s that coming over the hill? The future of work can no longer be perceived without considering the seismic geopolitical shifts taking place in the world, macro-economic trends and the agendas of the most influential and powerful global institutions that are openly stating they’re going to change what it means to be human. Technology plays a big part, particularly the rise of AI and its trajectory to transhumanism, the implications of which are far reaching.
This talk will take a tour through all these areas, connecting the dots to provide practical guidance on how to prepare for these tectonic shifts at a personal and professional level, based on the idea that ‘insight’ is seeing what everyone has seen, but thinking what no one has thought . Speaker: Future thinker, writer and member Leon Benjamin.
