We are most thrilled to have Michael McQueen to speak at the Global Graduation Ceremony of a major banking corporation, sharing his insights on “Preparing Now for What’s Next”.
Thanks to the pandemic, the graduates from around the world have had to contend with complexities none of them signed up for 2 years ago. That said, the resilience and agility they’ve had to learn will be invaluable in the years ahead. As Justin Trudeau so prophetically said in 2019, “The pace of change has never been this fast, but it will never again be this slow.” Those words ring truer than ever right now!
Preparing Now for What’s Next
Recent years have been disruptive and challenging for all of us but perhaps moreso for young professionals.
In this keynote presentation, bestselling author and trend forecaster Michael McQueen examines the trends that have accelerated as a result of the pandemic and highlights how these create unique opportunities for graduate program participants.
Specifically, Michael will examine how the increased use of AI and machine learning has enormous implications on the capabilities that young people will need to succeed in their careers. He will also examine what the future of work will look like and show why young people are perfectly placed to flourish in the working world of tomorrow.
Building on these insights, Michael will share a range of insights on why young professionals can be a powerful driver of innovation and share tips for emerging leaders to win influence and trust amongst their peers and leaders.
