Lately, we have been reading about the “future of” everything – from work to education, from information to healthcare and everything in between. How is one to know what to pay attention to, which information is trustworthy, and more importantly, what to do with it?

What should we be studying and learning if more than 65% of the jobs that will be available in 10 – 15 years don’t exist today? How should we be thinking about our companies’ strategies if we aren’t sure how quickly technology – or which technologies – will enable growth or impede it?

This dynamic talk, given from the perspective of living on the frontier of the future of work shows executives, politicians, educators, and students the tools they need to prepare and thrive in the future that is already now.

Learn what Blockchain is, in language that normal human beings can understand. Learn the technology and why it will matter across a broad swath of industries, including Finance, Healthcare, and Education.

Explore how harnessing the potential of the unknown will create success, fulfillment and freedom in the uncertainty of our world and economy through the lens of a pioneer who lived it first-hand, and is now creating solutions for the future of work. Learn the three tools you will need to empower your own and others’ success as the fourth industrial revolution continues to unfold.

Why there need to be more: The blockchain industry is currently comprised of 97% men, which brings with it the traditional challenges of male and female equality in the world. However, when this imbalance is paired with the potential of blockchain to be the mechanism of wealth distribution of the future, this raises questions of disparity of access to income and power at levels that are exponential. Additionally, the way that artificial intelligence and machine intelligence learn is through the (biased) perspectives that the rules of its coders give it. How might we get more women involved in the coding and building of these technologies to ensure a world with equal opportunity for all, as the future unfolds.

Hear Heather Abbott’s story of resilience following that tragic event—and learn how you can apply her life strategies to your daily living. You can “Live. Your. Life.” again, whatever your circumstances.

At the time of the Boston Marathon bombing, Heather Abbott enjoyed a high-powered career as a human resources executive with a Fortune 50 company.

Little did Heather know that one day she would become the very kind of employee she was entrusted to protect.

Abbott is additionally able to provide an acute Western perspective on the most pressing geopolitical and global economic issues of the day as they relate to Asia.

Organizations—whether a corporation, salesforce or association of any size—perform at their best when people feel safe and confident about their ability to navigate troubled times. In Navy terms, combat readiness is a matter of life and death—every crewmember’s contribution matters.
