Keynote speaker


Learning is deeply personal. Education - informal or formal, schools or street, at work or in the classroom - builds our collective, human potential. 

There is no space more important to disrupt - our world depends on education for strong mindsets, healthy bodies, expansive thinking, and responsible relationships - even responsible relationships with the technology we’re building (technology that is learning exponentially faster than we are!) Education is more important than ever. 

Jos focuses on how technology can exponentially change the future of learning, looks at ways in which education is currently being disrupted, and highlights advanced technology for schools and corporates to take learning further. She uses diverse examples to bring this story to life for global audiences.
