Technology is transforming all aspects of our lives. The way we work, the way we eat, the way we raise our kids. It can feel overwhelming and scary. In this 60 minute, interactive keynote, Mathias Jakobsen will take you up to the 30.000 feet view, where patterns begin to emerge. Mathias shares examples, ideas and memorable stories from his life and work over the past 15 years, showing how the future is not as far away as we might think, how our expectations can rapidly shift, and giving useful suggestions for how we can all participate in creating the world we want to live in. This talk is useful for anyone working in the space of innovation, digital transformation and business transformation.
Mathias Jakobsen founded his first internet company in Denmark at age 16. He has worked with IBM, Google, Holstee, Bloomberg and taught at pioneer institutions like Hyper Island and General Assembly. He currently lives in New York City where he teaches at Parsons School of Design and works on Learning and Development at SYPartners.
