Futurist iKeynote, Paris: The Future of Law, Dentons

 

Held every year to promote entrepreneurship and futures thinking across the kingdom with a special focus on how new technologies can help the kingdom realise their Vision 2030 strategy, the events drive in format is one of the most unique I’ve experienced – and that’s saying something bearing in mind that in the past I’ve shared stages with everything from military helicopters and Abrhams tanks to big brass bands and self-driving cars.

With over 800 people in the audience, all socially distanced in the comfort of their cars, and more people watching the live streams, I discussed the Future of Education and Entrepreneurship and the impact new technologies and thinking will help reform today’s industrial age education systems so it’s future fit, and how entrepreneurs will be able to develop and grow their businesses at a speed and scale that would have been almost unimaginable even just a decade ago.
