About Zoe Eather

Signature Keynote

Human Lens on Technology Trends

Change is happening whether we are involved or not. And there is enormous pressure for businesses, government, and every single one of us to follow and get involved with the tsunami of technology trends seemingly about to crash on top of us. This is overwhelming.

Focusing on technology for the sake of technology builds barriers to unlocking what is possible because it misses a fundamental piece – the humans! Technology doesn’t happen by itself it’s a product of the human brain, therefore it’s time to put a human lens on technology trends to unpack what we actually need to know and how we create our own impact by getting involved in the future, today.

Key Takeaways:

  • Leveraging tech trends to create impact
  • How to shape the future  you want
  • Unlocking your ‘Possible Brain’

Leandro Lopez Digon, City of Adelaide, National Economic Development Conference

“We wanted a facilitator that would also know about the ‘smart’ discussion and be an engaging and vibrant person. We got that from Zoe and so much more! Zoe’s enthusiasm is contagious and her ability to join the dots is remarkable. Just have a chat with Zoe and you will see.”

Danielle Storey, Chief Technology Officer

“I’ve been lucky enough to work with Zoe a lot over the past 3 years, I don’t think I’ve met anyone with as much passion for smart communities to date. Zoe is a great speaker, presenter, facilitator and collaborator. Not only is she knowledgeable, she gets people excited about smart communities and helps to make change one person at a time!”
