I had the honor of seeing Andre’s presentation in person a couple weeks back at the CIO Executive Summit | Detroit (in Dearborn.) If you are remotely interested in technology and the increasing speed of innovation, this talk is worth it’s weight in gold – very “TED” esq. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did. http://www.bycios.com/posts/view/id/5116
Every recession of the past few decades has spawned massive restructuring of technology and an abundance of opportunity when the inevitable rebound occurs. Special Olympics International Global CIO André Mendes sees a veritable maelstrom of change sweeping us into the next generation of innovation, with life-changing consequences for people worldwide. In this inspirational keynote, Mendes envisions a near future where culture, business and technology are tightly intertwined and virtually indistinguishable; where societies are forever altered and where technology serves as a guidepost for a “higher level of reality” in the fast-evolving world of the 21st century.
