THE CA(SA) OF THE FUTURE

What does the future look like?

Technology drives data, data catalyses knowledge, and knowledge enables empowerment. We know that in tomorrow’s world, today’s skills and expertise will be applied differently.

Something the current pandemic has shown us is how important technology is for maintaining and facilitating communication – not merely just for work, but for building real emotional connections. And while the pandemic has provided difficult lessons to us in how susceptible, our world is to turmoil it has perhaps for the first time shown us the necessity for real global collaboration, data transparency and information to minimise threats.

A new normal is emerging, and in the next few years, we can expect the process to accelerate with AI technology built to connect us as a human level and allow us to be closer together, even when physically apart.

Join us for thought-provoking sessions where worldwide speakers will bring some visibility and context to the future and show where opportunities lie in technology and innovation – and how you can manage and embrace it.
