Top 5 Global Thought Leader Future of Work and HR | Workplace Futurist / Recruitment Marketing Strategist / Employee Selection Expert / Author / TEDx Speaker / Virtual Keynote Speaker/ Podcaster

I'm both fascinated and terrified by the pace of exponential change and VUCA. Disruption, innovation, creativity, and disruptive transformation inspires me. I'm excited how the convergence of ideas, humans, and technology might improve the quality of life for all, advancing education, reducing poverty, protecting our planet and ...the list goes on. But the accelerating pace of technology also terrifies me, specifically when it comes to the growing knowledge gap, shifts in power, and widespread naivete of the masses.
