“What does the future hold for us? Well, my particular topic specialisation is human connection. I’m going to be talking about acquiring human connection — superhero status — in order to survive in the future workforce, which means doing all the best we do as humans better, because we will be competing with artificial intelligence and robots going into the future. Sounds like a science fiction film, I know, but I’m all about getting us future-ready!”

 

Simone Heng has had a decade-and-a-half-long career in the entertainment industry. As a former broadcaster, her job involved building meaningful and indelible connections with audiences on stage, on air, online and one-to-one. Her cross-continental adventures across the Middle East, Switzerland, Australia, and Singapore have led her to become a true student of Human Connection. She is deeply passionate about speaking on the importance of human connection, and its role in our lives, work, and an increasingly globalised world where disconnection is growing.
