Technology will disrupt...

Dan Carmody is a professional public speaker who is fascinated with the future. Specifically, Dan's speeches revolve around how one can achieve career excellence while working in an increasingly automated and AI-focused work environment.

Technology will disrupt careers. Period. Technological disruption has occurred in the past and will accelerate in the future. Therefore, an important question needs to be answered: How does one excel in a workplace when there is accelerating technological disruption?

The Future-Proof Speech Series

Imagine ten years from today you are in a coffee lounge, sitting in a comfortable chair with light music playing in the background. You're taking time to "unplug" and read an old-fashioned paperback book. While you read, your coffee mug senses that the coffee is reaching non-optimal temperatures. The coffee mug sends this information to the lounge computer systems which immediately directs the autonomous coffee dispensing machine to your seat. Upon leaving the lounge, facial recognition cameras identify you and automatically charge your electric wallet. This coffee lounge of the future employees no people.... only robots and systems.

How does one excel in a workplace when there is accelerating technological disruption?
