An energetic and engaging speaker, Gigi Johnson helps us rethink our futures.

Gigi helps us rethink our Questions.  She inspires us to explore different directions with our work, future visions, and our lives.  She makes clear the many new technologies in our daily lives.  She identifies new business trends and connections, not just for now, but for the mid-term future.

She focuses on three drivers of new alternatives:

  • how time, place, and data are reconnecting how we engage with each other;
  • how our stories that we use to understand those reconnections drive change; and
  • how we can thrive by bringing new models and information into our work, careers, brands, and relationships.

Dr. Johnson speaks about impacts of technology and change on creative industries, future work, careers, education, big decisions, communities, and social change.
