Description

Staying relevant in the Age of Acceleration.

If you experience fear of missing out or are constantly busy, if you feel there's never enough time, and scrolling your social media feed makes you feel inferior and like you'll never be able to catch up - you are experiencing the Age of Acceleration.

Not only does everything seem to accelerate, but we also are at the cusp of the 4th Industrial revolution which will additionally influence and substantially change how we work, produce, connect and express ourselves.

These changes are mainly driven by robotics*, artificial intelligence (AI)** and machine learning (ML). It is, however, incredibly helpful to understand the bigger context which will empower you to create and design meaningful products that are in line with your customer values and experiences.

Join us for coffee, pastries and mingle with creatives from various industries. Daniela will walk you through the 4 Macro trends, how we got here, how we can adapt, adjust and thrive in this new reality!

Later, we will break into smaller groups to workshop ideas and solutions to the challenges you find most pressing. You will leave the session refreshed, optimistic and energized and with a downloadable link to the presentation and fresh new insights.

Seating is limited but we do have some free spots reserved for students. Please contact us directly via email.



*The International Labor Organization reports that robots will replace between 64% and 88% of textile, clothing and footwear workers in Far East.
**It is expected that artificial intelligence and machine learning will directly impact 47% of U.S. jobs
