Coffee with the Future is your bite-sized dose of inspiration in the Work out Room.
The coronavirus has demonstrated how rapidly and profoundly our world can change. How do we prepare for far-reaching changes and uncertainties? In this edition of Coffee with the Future, we heed advice from internationally acclaimed writer and entrepreneur Margareth Heffernan. Her TED Talk “ The human skills we need in an unpredictable world” was watched by more than 100.000 people.
“The more we rely on technology to make us efficient, the fewer skills we have to confront the unexpected,” says Dr. Heffernan. “Imagination, humility and bravery will help us solve problems in business, government and life in an unpredictable age of climate change.” Her speech predates the coronavirus crisis and during these turbulent times her words have already proven to be highly applicable.
Though there is much talk about skills of the future and 21st century skills, very few people manage to make this topic as tangible and inspiring as Margareth Heffernan. In this Coffee with the Future, we’ll watch the TED Talk together. Afterwards, Dr. Heffernan will join us on Google Meet to answer questions and exchange thoughts.
An extraordinary opportunity to learn more about the skills of the future!
Looking forward to welcoming you online or in the Work out Room.
