The world never stands still. Disruption is the norm, not the exception. The past is not a reliable roadmap for the future. What got you HERE won’t necessarily get you THERE.
The world needs a new kind of leadership. In a world of constant and rapid change, leaders require a new set of skills and perspectives. Tomorrow's leaders will need the flexibility to consider multiple business perspectives, the courage to move outside their comfort zone, the instincts to decide priorities. To be a leader you need to embrace growth, be ready to LIVE, LEARN and LEAD yourself and your organization into a New Reality.

Solving the world’s problems through science, technology, ingenuity and creativity. The interplay between innovations in fields such as robotics, artificial intelligence, clean energy, 3d printing, gene editing and nanotechnologies will dramatically alter the way we live and work.
Gaia Grant will be on a panel of experts who will share their optimistic vision for the future; one empowered by a culture of creativity and innovation that cuts across all fields of human and scientific endeavour to solve the great challenges for humanity. They will consider how we can ensure that the impact of innovation reaches those most in need, and the ethical and regulatory challenges we have to overcome along the way.
