The panel discussion is available to watch on-demand now:
An expert in integrating people, processes and technology to help transform organisations to be fit today to thrive tomorrow, Debra is passionate about harnessing technology to make a meaningful impact on society.
As a visionary, Debra sees both the global opportunities and perils that will evolve as we move toward and go beyond 2030. In 2018, Debra co-founded The Kindness Movement, which is dedicated to encouraging kindness in school children across the world. Debra believes in leaving a legacy that promotes the softer skills that will be increasingly important differentiators between humans, robots and artificial intelligence systems of the fast-approaching Fourth Industrial Revolution. Debra is also Founder of the #CharityForum, a group of amazing minds helping the charity sector be fit to thrive, finding ways to overcome today’s challenges, shining a light on future opportunities.
Debra was delighted to be part of this festival of events (live talks, interviews, masterclasses, mentoring sessions and workshops) aimed at empowering and equipping people with skills to take their industries and careers to the next level. Speaking before the event, Debra said:
It’s an exciting time to be a leader. I look forward to sharing my thoughts on this panel, discussing my career, mentorship, the next 10 years and my pledge to cause change in 2021
