About this talk

What do careers look like in the future?

What kinds of jobs will there be?

And what should we all be doing now to prepare?

Join us for a lively debate on the topic with an incredible panel of four diverse perspectives:

A/Prof Catherine Ball - Scientific Futurist

Catherine is a drone expert, tech influencer and author with an awards roll as long as my arm, including National Telstra Business Woman of the Year, Corporate and Private Award (2015).

Sally-Ann Williams - CEO

Sally-Ann is currently leading Cicada Innovations as well as a host of NED and advisor roles. She's ex-Google, and freaking amazing.

Jessie Hughes - Creative Technologist

Jessie is a new media artist and technologist whose work has been exhibited at Sundance Film Festival, SXSW, Tate Modern, and Cannes Film Market. She's also a John Monash Scholar, supporting her Masters at Harvard University.

Josh Richards - Cosmic Nomad

Josh is an astronaut candidate for Mars One, author and former angry koala (seriously - Keith the Anger Management Koala is his alter-ego. They're both bloody hilarious).

This panel will be moderated by Lacey Filipich, a WiTWA Committee Member, author of Money School and a chemical engineer.
