Incredible Innovations Shaping Your Industry

Which digital advances need to be on your radar now, to be future ready? In this riveting talk, Shivvy Jervis – one of the globe’s few female and Asian innovation forecasters – will take audiences on a riveting walkthrough of the digital innovations shaping their industry.
Designed to ditch the jargon, the talk aims to be accessible and energetic, focusing only on human-centred innovations and realistic use cases given Shivvy’s approach of separating the hype from the facts. Opening with a relatable subject, Shivvy might quickly share an innovation from a different field – the science behind motivation – and explain how we can use this at work.
Then, for the core part of the session she’ll walk us through what to expect from areas such as either the evolution of automation/AI, Metaverse, digital identity or our connected world (based on what is most relevant to the client).
Time permitting, she will deliver a memorable closing with a window into either the most fascinating jobs of the near future, skills we’ll need or the signals that tell us why the near- and medium-term future is more hopeful than we might think!

The Future Is Human – Shifts in Our Work, Jobs And Skills

Why we underestimate our own individual potential, and how we have more collective mental firepower than we think! The future isn’t solely technological, rather will still be a people-let digital future. Then going into three crucial shifts that are shaping our future…
Shift #1 – JOBS
– Striking shifts in types of jobs and how we’ll earn our livelihood
– AI = augmenting our human roles or decimating them? The true risk and benefits from automation and how we can use it to augment our work and keep our jobs
– The most fascinating and unusual jobs already taking shape now
Shift #2 – SKILLS 
– Which skills will we need to stay future ready?
- The surprising – and hugely encouraging – finding about what we know of as “soft” skills
- The ‘think like an inventor’ skill and why this will be vital to differentiating us from our competition         

Shift #3 – MINDSET
– The behavioural psychology and neuroscience behind motivation 
– Proven triggers that cause us to mentally disengage from someone or something at work
– Practical tips on how to apply this at work, to powerfully engage and hold the attention of our colleagues and clients/consumers
