Keynote Topic #1

The Tech Landscape and Why Tech Needs Diversity

Tech is a booming industry with growing importance any given economy, but it is also suffering from a large skill shortage at a time when a criminally low proportion of women are entering and staying in the field. Anne-Marie will dissect the HERstory of the tech industry of the past and present and discuss what we can do to cultivate future tech leaders.

Keynote Topic #2

AI & The Future of Work

Robots are going to take our jobs eventually – in fact it’s already started. This is a comical, yet real, look at what the future looks likes and ways to future-proof yourself and your business.

Keynote Topic #3

Social Entrepreneurship: Doing a Lot with a Little

Anne-Marie uses her wealth of experience from the many lessons learned from running social enterprises, and taking something from a mere concept to becoming an influencer, to show how a company or individual can “get the show on the road” with very limited resources.
