Jose Quintanilla (far right) presents his entertaining and enlightening marketing pitch for his team’s artificial intelligent (AI) company with his corporate team at FUTURE FORUM 3
FUTURE FORUM 3 was a conversation, an exercise, and an activity flavored with fun.
A conversation about Artificial Intelligence (AI) and it’s impact on the world? Yes, it was. An exercise to develop creative thinking and collaboration skills? What better way than students from 3 different high schools – Hope High, LaSalle Academy and Rocky Hill School – uninhibitedly sharing their creative ideas in a supportive, collaborative environment facilitated by successful, empowering professionals. A networking activity to meet new people and build networks of diverse, successful, people to create lifetime opportunities for personal development and success? The Forum proved to be a perfect venue for people to introduce themselves to each other, ask questions, exchange business cards, enjoy one an other’s company and display positive, personal brands over a delicious lunch. Fun, you ask? Where else could so many enjoy each other’s company, fly drones, don virtual reality goggles, and be amazed at the magic of one of our visiting futurists, Roey Tzezana!?! And, we won’t forget the insight from one, Lisbet Gomez, from Hope High School. “It will always be about the data!, Mr Cronin”. I concur.
“Yes, it is, Lisbet! Yes, it is.”
Yours truly opens FUTURE FORUM 3 with an introduction to two of the Forum’s featured speakers – (left) Dr Roey Tzezana, an Israeli “Futurist” and Artificial Intelligence expert and Melissa Cronin, a Managing Director at the international consulting company, Accenture, in their Technology Financial Services Division.
