When You Want to Set the Scene for Something Big

CAN TECHNOLOGY MAKE US MORE HUMAN?

Technology keynotes. For people.

SIMON WALLER

Keynote Summary

We are constantly being blindsided by technology. Activities that were previously considered the sole domain of humans such as driving vehicles and helping diagnose cancer are now being done (often more successfully) by machines. As the rate of technology-driven change continues to increase, a very legitimate question arises: what type of work will be left for us?

It turns out that the progress of technology is more predictable than we think and there are actions that we can take to improve our long-term relevance. Beyond that, we can also find ways to use technology to free our time from mundane tasks and invest in the uniquely human qualities that enrich our lives.

Given the breadth of impact we are currently seeing with digital disruption, this keynote has broad appeal across all levels in an organisation and is relevant to many different industry sectors.

Timing (when in the program)

Ideally this keynote would be best accompanied by a glass of red around an open fire at the end of the first day. If this isn’t one of your speaker spots you might otherwise consider using it towards the beginning of your program to help open people’s minds.
