The confluence of exponentially accelerating technologies like robotics, artificial intelligence and biotech  will fundamentally change business, society and us in the coming decades. Marjan shares the incredible reality on the horizon, how this rapid growth is empowering individuals and small companies to do what only governments and multi-national companies were able to achieve a few decades ago and also the different mindset required to thinking exponentially and to find your own opportunity in this incredible time of change.

Marjan Mohsenin has over two decades of experience working with large global organizations to align their business, technology, and people practices. She had had extensive experience launching and growing innovative, strategic partnerships. Marjan also has keen insight to this exponential era of disruption.
