Megan is a top notch change and project management consultant - perfectly qualified to keep us both in line and moving forward. She is an innovative thinker with a particular interest in leadership development.

Her Master's from Auckland University (where she won the Senior Prize for Management) focused on leadership within a Bahraini youth programme. It was completed while she was working as a consultant in Bahrain developing leaders in the oil/gas, banking/financial and telecommunications sectors as well as for NGOs. In 2014, after five and a half years in Bahrain, she moved to New Zealand taking up a role as Project Solutions Manager for career transition agency Career Partners - part of the international Virtual Resources Group. Both organisations are all about strategising for the future of work, which has a perfect synergy with her work here at Tech Futures Lab, where she is a key contact for our candidates.

Connected Environments: What it takes to become a smart organisation in a smart country.
3pm-3:45pm Bunnings Trade Speaker Series

Our world is moving at a speed where nearly anything can be continuously digitally connected. Now, more than ever, the opportunities made available by these connections are revolutionising our homes, our workplaces and our cities.

To fully realise the economic and societal opportunities IoT offers Aotearoa, we need more strategic leaders and innovators who understand the multiple dimensions of a ‘Connected Environment’: technology, data, ethics & governance, and ultimately business impact.

With new techniques of machine learning and artificial insights, and advances in wireless communications such as 5G we are able to manage human activities and engagement to a far deeper and meaningful level. Machine learning, artificial intelligence, augmented reality, digital twins are examples of technologies that support human activity through automation, deep insights of information meaning and engagement for critical action.

Whether you’re operating at an enterprise level or you’re an individual wanting to leverage technology to drive organisational efficiency and advantage using sensing systems, this is a critical time to recognise the impact of IoT, 5G and deep data analytics. The insights it can expose requires strategic consideration and foresight. Creating a Connected Environment is more than adding sensors to existing operations, it is a strategic decision enabling better organisational outcomes and more effective delivery of your purpose to your clients.

How will we make effective use of Connected Environment technologies to make Aotearoa a more liveable and prosperous nation? How will we imbue technology solutions with values that draw on our indigenous knowledge and history to create a positive impact for people and planet

Join the conversation with our panel of entrepreneurs and experts to discuss why Connected Environments represent a digital turning point that will impact all of us.
