Great to speak to a room full of lawyers at the London Stock Exchange this morning about emerging risks!
Part of why I became a futurist is because I don't think we talk about risk enough - and if we aren't aware of the pitfalls of new technologies, how are we going to avoid them?
Thank you Travelers for inviting me to be your opening keynote!

Thrilled to be featured in this month's Biz magazine drawing attention to the relationship between emerging technologies like AI & the Metaverse, and their environmental impact.
Today I had the pleasure of leading a #GenerativeAI intensive workshop for the leadership team of one of the world's top athletic wear brands! Following my presentation yesterday on the opportunities, risks, and future of AI across physical, digital, and virtual retail, today we experienced for ourselves how Gen-AI can help achieve in hours what traditionally can take months!
Honour to work with such an amazing group of people! Special thanks to Geoffrey Boulakia of Messaging Me who was a great collaborator on this fun and important project!
The future is here... and it's pretty cool!

About 5 years ago I started mentoring and it has been such a rewarding and valuable aspect of not just my career, but my life.
Super proud of Philipp Heideker, Celine Baumgartner, and Laurel Boxall for how far they've come and all they've achieved over these last 6 months in the All Tech Is Human mentorship program!
For our final session, I interviewed them about their insights, advice, and vision for creating a more positive tech future. Check out this short video:

In case you missed last Thursday - check out this video of 'F**k Cyberpunk: How female-led design & thinking can redefine the Metaverse':
A couple of my key takeaways:
⭐️ The human experience and design of the metaverse desperately needs our attention and imagination.
⭐️ While intellectually many understand the metaverse is the future, emotionally there is still a significant disconnect. Representation is key.
⭐️ We have an amazing opportunity to create something that could: right generations of wrongs; be used as a tool of empowerment rather than subjugation; bridge the divides Web 2.0 has created; and produce something that - not only do we Want to participate in - but also has the potential to enhance minds, bodies, spirits, promote healing and equality, doesn’t harm our natural environment, and is actually something that gives people hope.

I'd like to invite you to an upcoming discussion I'm hosting and sponsoring along with designer Freyja Sewell :
"F**k Cyberpunk: How female-led design & thinking can redefine the Metaverse"
We are on the cusp of co-creating a new world, the Metaverse. We can create whatever kind of world we want. It can be beautiful, biophilic, inclusive and diverse. Yet too often rather than exploring new visions and priorities, we face a self fulfilling prophecy of cyberpunk, commercialism and dystopia. This event is a conversation around how we can do things differently and aim for something better.
To be held online Thursday 30th March, 18:00 - 19:00 BST.
