Keynote | The New Intelligence for the Human Age
COVID-19 is spreading exponentially, workforces have been sent home, physical distancing and self-isolation are the new norm and school's out. Welcome to the reality of being a professional in 2020. Partner this complexity with a workforce that was already feeling burnt out, anxious and humanly disconnected and you have the platform for a perfect storm.

Whilst the immediate priority is focused on flattening the curve, the long-term critical priority is maintaining the mental health of our society so that those who survive have the ability to thrive. We find ourselves at a forced moment of inflection. Mother nature has sent us to our metaphoric rooms and given us time out – time out to rethink the future of humanity and the role we have in shaping it.

Welcome to the human age! A place where those who put humans first and prioritise the mental health of their employees will reap the rewards long term. But how? It’s time to cultivate a new intelligence – an intelligence that enables humans to cease reacting and start intentionally adapting.

This interactive learning experience will explore:

• What it means to be human and why it matters more than ever
• How to cultivate positive human connection experiences whilst working virtually
• A framework for amplifying the human skills required to support intentional adaptation and basic wellbeing
