The Future is a Quantum Leap Away
Local leader Emily Lee-Ack set the scene for what was a day of futuristic thinking, as the LGSC participants were presented with information regarding the regions strategic direction and an insight into the behind the scenes work that goes on to ensure the priorities of the Great South Coast are kept at the forefront of state Government.
Sandy Burgoyne briefed our emerging leaders on the 4th Industry revolution, the Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths (STEAM) skills required both now and in the future. The participants were challenged to think about the future, what it means for the future world of work, our families and the way we live our lives. The world around us is constantly changing and as leaders we need to be aware of these changes, embrace them and prepare our families and colleagues.
“To keep an open mind. Don’t look at something now and see what it is… think what if”
