Time: 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM CDT
Event Description:
Join StartingBlock Madison for a virtual innovation event on how new technologies will change the planet in Madison and Beyond featuring international futurist Dr. Bruce McCabe.

How will you survive in a world of exponential innovation? What threats and opportunities do they create for you? How do global innovations impact the Madison region? Hear stories about the scientists and engineers behind these innovations, and how they are “thinking differently” to tackle big challenges in novel ways.

Attendees will be taken on a journey of innovation as they are introduced to Dr. McCabe’s favorite innovators and their game-changing technologies that address challenges in transportation, construction, manufacturing, agriculture, healthcare and emergency services, urban planning and airport operations. Future-proofing starts with a deeply informed and forward-looking perspective. Bruce turns your fears into fuel by getting you thinking optimistically and expansively about new possibilities. 

Dr. Bruce McCabe is widely recognized for his pioneering research in innovation and the adoption of new technologies. He has authored or co-authored more than 300 essays, columns and research papers, delivered more than 400 presentations on five continents and holds a Ph.D. in organizational and technological innovation from the University of Technology Sydney, where he is also an Adjunct Professor.
