Dear NOCA members,
Pack your laptop and book a train ride to beautiful Aarhus, because you’re invited to an immersive workshop in Hands-on-AI with Strategic Foresight & Anticipatory Leadership – a dynamic exploration at the intersection of technology, strategic foresight, and leadership.
You can learn by observing and talking to others, but transformation and innovative solutions often arise when we delve into technology together hands-on. What can this tool do? What can I use it for? What can society use it for? How do I take care when using it? What are its components and its potential? It’s not merely about discussing the present technological wave – it’s about understanding how it flows and riding it with purpose and intention.
Our workshop facilitators, Lise Bach Lystlund and Adam Gordon, bring a wealth of experience with guiding learning and a shared passion for leveraging technology for the betterment of humanity and the environment. They firmly believe that the most potent tech solutions emerge from collaborative efforts. In this workshop we collaborate from deep domain knowledge combined with tech skills.
Lise, a Data & AI Consultant and co-founder of Co-coders, has embraced this philosophy through her collaborations across diverse sectors, enriching tech solutions with invaluable insights from non-tech professionals. Adam, Associate Professor with AU and Unesco Chair in Anticipatory Leadership and Futures Capabilities, has dedicated his career to researching and applying methodologies that underpin anticipatory leadership and future perspectives.
This workshop isn’t just a discussion; it’s an engaging journey starting, if you want it to be. Join us as we tinker, experiment, and explore the potential of AI hands-on. Inspired with this new tool in our hands, let’s collectively envision futures where strategic foresight and anticipatory leadership might help guide our path of evolving HR, leadership, organizations and society beyond.
Date: Friday 1st of December 2023
Time: 10:00 – 15:00
Location: Aarhus University, Building 2610, Room: 2610-530
We look forward to welcoming you to a day filled with inspiration, engagement, fruitful chats with peers and opportunities for learning!
Bring your laptop and curiosity!
