Despite surface appearance to the contrary, the reimagination of everything has begun.
Everything appears to be fairly normal in the world. People are travelling to work, meeting with friends for dinner, planning vacations and living their lives. Well, while everything seems to be normal, we are seeing seismic shifts in all parts of life, work and family with technology leading the revolution.
This talk by Nik Badminton looks at today, the next 2 to 5 years, and beyond, and asks:
• What are the macro changes in the world that will force us to change?
• How will technology impact our work, our businesses, and our personal lives?
• What can we do to thrive and survive?
