Mainstage Events

Transforming Your Workforce IoT – A GE Perspective

Tuesday, May 23rd 10:55am Tobacco Dock, Main Stage

Talent is foundational to succeed in today’s digital industrial revolution. How can organizations reconfigure their people strategies, from recruiting and compensation, to learning and culture, to meet the demands of an ever-changing, digital landscape?

Beyond Business: A Holistic View of the Societal and Human Impact of IoT

Tuesday, May 23rd 3:50 pm Tobacco Dock, Main Stage
Gerd Leonhard, Futurist, Author, CEO The Futures Agency

Karen Walker, Chief Marketing Officer, Cisco

The societal impacts of IoT are enormous, yet still relatively uncharted and generally regarded as externalities. While technological progress is certain to bring vast economic and societal benefit, we cannot ignore the potential unintended consequences of exponential digital transformation. Thinking beyond the financial bottom line, the bigger questions deal with ethic and human flourishing: What will be the impact of IoT on society and culture, jobs and the global workforce? What is our role as business and technology leaders in preparing the world and the workforce for the exponential challenges and opportunities speeding towards us? In this session, we explore the ethics of IoT and the critical role of human ingenuity in designing and shepherding its impact. This event will be followed by a book signing by Gerd Leonhard.

Wednesday, May 24th 1:30pm Tobacco Dock, Main Stage
