How will AI help you do your job better?

AI is a cause of anxiety for many workers, with many fearing that automation will lead to layoffs. But is it possible that AI will help – rather than hinder – workers?

Head to this session to figure out how AI-driven technologies will empower professionals to excel in their roles, streamline tasks, and unlock new levels of productivity and innovation in the workplace.

Accelerating climate solutions with AI

AI has proven its efficacy in a range of fields, including developing a Covid-19 vaccine. But could it be used to help save the planet?

On Centre Stage, Microsoft’s chief sustainability officer Melanie Nakagawa will discuss how AI could offer solutions to the climate crisis, and explore how to accelerate the creation of the climate solutions needed to achieve a net-zero world.

What makes a great founder?

Are talented leaders born or made? On Centre Stage, Portugal’s Daniela Braga, founder and CEO at, and Chekr co-founder and CEO David Yanisse examine this eternal question about business skills.

The hitchhiker’s guide to great storytelling

Alex O’Brien – vice-chair, author and science writer at the Association of British Science Writers – and Birmingham City University author and professor Kehinde Andrews discuss the ins-and-outs of storytelling.

Whether you’re an aspiring writer, an avid reader, or simply curious about the magic behind storytelling, this is the talk for you.

Meaningful content? Paving the way for a new definition of content creators

What does it mean to be a content creator? Is it enough to just post videos and pictures online?
