What 3 BIGGEST TECHNOLOGIES will you need from now to 2030?
And What Strategies You Need Today and Why

Frank Feather

Event Description:

The 3 biggest technologies this decade will be what Frank Feather calls a QAIMETA Triad:

  1. Quantum Computing
  2. Advanced (not “artificial”) Intelligence
  3. Metaverse Mixed Reality

Are you QAIMETA ready? Here’s what you will learn; why all IT professionals and your organizations should develop strategies now for these QAIMETA technologies, or you will get left behind.

In addition, successful strategy implementation is not just about the technology itself. Success requires a stringent focus on two main items:

  1. Zero-Trust Cyber Security, which is still far from being achieved in most organizations.  
  2. A Tech-Savvy Employee Culture that is highly motivated to deliver a privacy-safe and exceptional Customer Experience (CX).

You don’t want to miss what Frank has to share, he will even give you several take-away ideas that you can act upon tomorrow.

About the Speaker:

Frank Feather has been called “a walking encyclopedia on the future”.

A strategy-driven futurist and strategist, he combines solid business experience with uncanny forecasts and novel insights that often shake up the conventional wisdom.

Frank uses AI to help him with his forecasts, and places a high priority on technology and its impact on business, society, and the economy. His current focus is the business need for what he calls a “QAIMETA Triad of Strategies: Quantum Computing, Advanced Intelligence, Metaverse Mixed Reality.”

When (And When Not) To Trust Your Gut:
Decision-Making and Problem Solving Skills for IT Pros

Dr. Aaron Barth

Event Description:

When IT professionals make decisions and solve problems based on their ‘gut feel’—as they often do in the course of their work—they are subversively relying on brain processes that lead to unconscious biases. These biases can lead to longer problem solving cycles and seriously flawed decisions.

Dr. Aaron Barth will discuss how IT pros can use the emergence gut feels as a prompt to insert evidence-based tactics that improve decision-making and problem solving skills.

Learning Outcomes

  • Identify cognitive biases that undermine decision-making
  • Recognize emotions that hijack your thinking
  • Challenge assumptions that lead to group-think
  • Uncover root causes that lead to unnecessary problem solving cycles and costs

About the Speaker:

Dr. Aaron Barth is an innovator working at the convergence of science, smart design and technology to change behaviour and transform organizations. Dr. Barth is a workplace science thought-leader and gives progressive leaders and HR directors the confidence they need to tackle their hardest people’s problems using scientific methods.
