Incredible Innovations Shaping Your Industry

Which digital advances need to be on your radar now, to be future ready? In this riveting talk, Shivvy Jervis – one of the globe’s few female and Asian innovation forecasters – will take audiences on a riveting walkthrough of the digital innovations shaping their industry.
Designed to ditch the jargon, the talk aims to be accessible and energetic, focusing only on human-centred innovations and realistic use cases given Shivvy’s approach of separating the hype from the facts. Opening with a relatable subject, Shivvy might quickly share an innovation from a different field – the science behind motivation – and explain how we can use this at work.
Then, for the core part of the session she’ll walk us through what to expect from areas such as either the evolution of automation/AI, Metaverse, digital identity or our connected world (based on what is most relevant to the client).
Time permitting, she will deliver a memorable closing with a window into either the most fascinating jobs of the near future, skills we’ll need or the signals that tell us why the near- and medium-term future is more hopeful than we might think!

The ‘Science Behind…’ Series

Apart from digital innovation tools, the forecasting lab Shivvy founded 7 years ago has focused in equal measure on discoveries about how our minds work.

She shows us how to apply breakthroughs from neuroscience and psychology to elevate our workforce and consumers, making it personal by sharing first-hand anecdotes, to leave audiences feeling both educated and inspired.

After the astounding success from incorporating the ‘science behind engagement’ theme as a short segment in her signature innovation talk, Shivvy is bringing the ‘science behind…’ theme to the stage as a series of either:
a) stand-alone talk on one topic
b) one keynote covering two topics
