More about the keynote:

Bailey Parnell is the Founder & CEO of SkillsCamp, a soft skills training company, and was named one of Canada’s Top 100 Most Powerful Women. Bailey is a 2x TED speaker with over 4 million views. 

The age of generative AI has been unlocked. Like many human-made tools before it, this technology can be used either to support our organizations and people or tear them apart. Bailey Parnell is here to help you ensure the former. How can we use AI to boost our organization’s productivity and our people’s wellbeing at the same time? How can we harness the benefits of generative AI without compromising on the ethical treatment of our people? How can average people already use this to make their lives easier? In this dynamic and unbelievably cutting-edge keynote, Parnell combines a decade of experience researching digital wellbeing with another decade teaching businesses the skills they need to succeed. 

By the end of this talk, you will be able to…
● Grasp the core potential and challenges of generative AI in contemporary settings.
● Understand how generative AI will affect your specific industry and function.
● Explain just how generative AI connects to employee wellbeing.
● Strategically integrate AI to bolster your own daily productivity and wellbeing (at the same time).
● Proactively navigate ethical questions associated with AI technologies.
● Feel more confident navigating the future of AI.
