GUEST LECTURE

Every day our physical surroundings and our digital interactions converge more and more, through data analytics, connected devices and the Internet of Things, wearable technology, geo-tagged and geo-targeted social media, surveillance, sensors and beacons, and so on. In very real ways, our human experiences create a targeted feedback loop, defining our opportunities, our relationships, our knowledge, and, ultimately, our selves.

At the same time, businesses in every industry face digital transformation or disruption due to emerging technologies, new business models, fickle platforms, and evolving customer expectations. So how can business make the right decisions and investments to secure the company’s future? What’s more, with everything changing so fast, how can they prevent ending up on the wrong side of data breaches and overreaches, ethics and regulatory missteps, and PR nightmares? How can responsible leaders grow their businesses without jeopardizing the future of humanity?

Kate O’Neill puts it all in context as she surveys the ups and downs of the emerging technology and cultural trends landscape and demonstrates how the decisions companies have far-reaching impact both to their bottom line and to the future of human experience as a whole. Kate makes the humanity-affirming case for the importance of meaning and meaningful experiences as guiding principles within business strategy and innovation, and shows leaders how to use these clarifying insights to articulate the kind of organizational focus that can help align priorities and resources so you can invest and adapt with confidence.

This lively, interactive and thought-provoking talk, will highlight opportunities, trends and considerations for innovation, entrepreneurship and strategy in technology and business.

There will be Q & A plus networking after the talk.
