Our society has seen more social and technological transformations in the past few months than over the past decades combined. Things are changing so fast that we barely have time to steady ourselves after one technological wave, before another comes along. With genetic engineering, robotics and AI continuing to rise, this pace is unlikely to let up anytime soon. It’s disrupting critical systems in the political, economic and social arenas as well as cultural norms and social roles. In this webinar participants will take away strategies on how to be nimble and pivot with the new changes to keep up with the current workforce demand and stay on the cutting edge.
