In this fast-paced and compelling presentation, you will discover:

  • The key ways artificial intelligence, quantum computing and augmented reality have accelerated rapidly during the pandemic and how this offers exciting new possibilities for those that are prepared
  • The role that GenZ are playing in redefining industry norms and how to win in a post-millennial marketplace
  • How to foster engagement, collaboration and culture when leading remote and hybrid teams

Audience members will leave this presentation with a clear and practical game plan for navigating the new now.
