9. The ‘Future-Ready’ Keynote Series – ‘The Death of Common Knowledge’
Fake News, Algo Filtering, Deepfakes... All are symptoms of a much larger problem, 'The Death of Common Knowledge'. What happens when society disagrees with basic facts? Water boils at 100oC. The moon orbits the earth. There are 365 days in a year. The pandemic has highlighted how polarised society can be on what's agreed to be true or not. The solution is better critical thinking skills and needs to become an essential part of school curriculums.
In 'Future of Leadership', we explore how leaders of the future will need new skills and characteristics to propel them forward. That’s because organisations and the markets they serve will look entirely different. In this keynote, we explore how leaders must develop employee critical thinking skills, especially in younger generations. Also, why it's becoming such a differentiator when hiring fresh talent.
