These tools will improve the world and provide tremendous opportunity to the swift and agile as rapidly as they leave laggards behind. In this conversationDon MacPherson will share how six technology trends and six social trends – like aging, inequality, and privacy – are disrupting how we work and even what it means to be human. Over the last three years, Don has traveled the world to interview geniuses about these trends for his 12 Geniuses podcast. From those experiences, he will share what individuals and organizations can do to prepare for and take advantage of these changes. Your session host: James Brissenden.
