Data & Digital Business Transformation

We will discuss the importance of personal data and how it is being used to shape the future of business and society. As a result of the widespread acceptance of the internet, booming mobile device usage, and vast amounts of data, new business models have emerged to meet our every need and convenience online.

Data has become the fuel to power many businesses’ goals and engines, as they collect, measure, and analyze it in order to market to people like you and me based on our search, behavioural habits, and purchasing patterns. Some of these companies provide enticing behavioural and habit-changing services that will result in irreversible social change.

Data has quickly become one of the world’s most valuable commodities, and we’re willing to trade our personal information for convenience, entertainment, and instant gratification.
We explore what the future of business and society might look like, as well as practical steps you can take to reclaim and reposition your data power.

We need to know about the metaverse because the future is here! The metaverse is a network of 3D virtual worlds focused on social connection.

That translates into a digital economy, where users can create, buy, and sell virtual or physical goods. You need to be there!

Rethinking Learning

The bond between Ingenious and Black Learning Experiences
From Covid 19 to the George Floyd murder to the mass graves of 215 Indigenous Children, 2020 was a year of upheaval and trauma. In October 2020, Claudette was offered an opportunity of a lifetime and decided to leave conformity behind to forge a path to healing. Partnering with Black and Ingenious organizations, she has spent the last three years engineering learning experiences dedicated to creating culturally relevant training that incorporates the richness of our history and ways. During her session, she will explain why organizations must rethink how we approach learning for the Black and Ingenious Community and how using the power of technology and the rich history of storytelling, community, and connection can be even more transformative than the power of AI.
