Digital innovation not only changes corporations but also who we are as humans. Technology continues to evolve at an exponential rate, swiftly collapsing industries that took decades to build. As cutting-edge technology seems to update every day, questions arise such as:How will this evolution change the way we humans work?What does this mean for the next generation? The reality is that every industry will be affected just as any other.
In his presentation, Jeff Butler unravels which technological changes to anticipate (such as autonomous vehicles, Blockchain and artificial intelligence) and how their integration impacts the workforce, not only from a business perspective but sociological, psychological, and existential as well.How might this wave of change affect industries—and us as the people that work for them—faster than experts originally anticipated?While inevitable, one of the most important things that people can do now is learn where the tide is coming from… and be prepared for its impact.Jeff’s timely presentation will help guide and navigate conference attendees through this meteoric challenge called “technology change”!
