Conversation Notes

  • The rate and pace of change will be like nothing we’ve ever seen before in its scope and complexity.
  • Convergence and collaboration helps innovation create value and forge a difference in society.
  • As humans, our need is to come together and collaborate – posing both benefits and challenges.
  • We have to create places for the sweet spot of innovation: for people to come together, embrace our diversity and engage each other fully.

“No one lawyer, engineer or scientist will solve the problems in our society. The sum is greater than the parts, we all need to play our part in this.”
