All of the evidence suggests we are in the opening years of a fourth industrial revolution. Changes in the way we live, work, and play are occurring at an accelerated rate. Humanity’s future is now firmly in an urban context and technology is driving new behaviours, expectations, and challenges. Breakthroughs in science, major demographic shifts, and the onset of a climate in crisis are some of the macro trends shaping a more unpredictable future. In this context, in order for individuals and organisations to continue to thrive in a world in transition, they must get a grasp of many of the big trends in motion and ahead. Leadership must begin with understanding. This talk builds the context and shares insights on a number of essential areas of change that includes the future of our cities and technologies that are driving this new revolution. Participants will walk away inspired and optimistic and ready to explore relevant topics more deeply in their environment.
