The British Chamber of Commerce for Luxembourg proudly welcomed Futurist Liselotte Lyngsø for a fascinating, energising and insightful talk at its Leadership Forum held on 19 October at the Banque de Luxembourg.
Liselotte discussed the future and its exciting advancements such as robots, quantum computers, and virtual reality. Cool topics that she frequently engages with in her podcast SUPERTRENDS. She got people excited about the future. Facts like how we’ll soon be able to hug each other in the virtual world blew their minds and they couldn’t believe it when she told them that they’ll soon be able to taste and even smell through our avatars and holograms.
Liselotte spoke mainly about exciting advancements of the future, but she also warned about the potential risks of new technology. Deep fakes, for example, can lead to scams and fake news. Therefore, we must consider the kind of society we want to create for the future.
The Future of Leadership is Filled with Curiosity
Lyngsø also had some advice for leaders; Namely that they have to get curious and be open-minded about the future. We are moving to a new age of precision, where technology customizes services to our individual needs. This means that a cleaning company in the future might use data analyses to determine what needs cleaning. When, where, and for how long!
