Humanizing Leadership, Embracing the Other, and Exploring New Identities

What’s on at the House - Day 5, Tuesday, November 7th, 2017

Stop by for Breakfast with Humans, with fresh coffee and food from our House Chef Massimo Sanfelice, a chat with House residents and friends, and a very special kind of press conference.

The Studio space will be open and free to use all day for co-working, networking, and hanging out. Get creative in our music studio or browse through the Library of Beautiful Business, featuring curiosities and artifacts from our House residents. Stop by the “Humans of New Work” exhibition by Soulworx, a photo-documentary series of profiles on the new faces of human-centered work. Or discover your AI alter-ego with Indeed. We’ll keep you supplied with snacks, beverages, and power outlets!

Join Julia von Winterfeldt of Soulworx in the afternoon to explore Humanizing Leadership, Julia is passionate about the human aspect of leadership and discovering our own personal purpose in order to be more effective leaders. She is joined by special guest Limor Schweizer, CEO of Robosavvy. RoboSavvy is currently creating the most advanced 1m tall research humanoid robot in the world, and is developing affordable 3D printable humanoid robots to assist in future education programs.

Artist Helene Lundbye Petersen will perform from her WhitePageProject, exploring the need for a new universal language that allows us to better express our emotions. Her workshop 11-Colour Leadership, part co-creation, part performance, will uncover her solution to this new language.

Caffeine will be back in the House to speed-coach your business challenges with Purpose & Pace — to help you identify and articulate the purpose of your business. They‘re a strategic consultancy that works with leaders to help them define and deliver their vision quickly and smartly. (If you miss this one, they will be hosting a session on Wednesday as well).

In the evening, we will be Coming Together with Laurent Haug who will be hosting a discussion that will explore why building human platforms is the most important skill of the 21st century. Laurent speaks and consults on innovation strategies and the impact of technologies on business and society. Check out his book Come Together

Then we’ll continue the discussion of unity during Embracing the Other, a 1:1 conversation with Gemma Mortensen. A former Executive Director of Crisis Action, she founded More in Common with Brendan Cox, husband of murdered MP Jo Cox. More in Common’s mission is to build communities and societies that are stronger, more resilient, and more open.

We’ll cast our imaginations wide with New Realities, New Identities, hosted by bioengineer Keira Havens and ethnographer Jonathan Cook. They’ll be guiding a discussion that explores new technologies such as AI, VR, neuro-enhancement, and genetic engineering while asking the question: will exponential technologies liberate us to be exponentially more human? Leaning into the discussion are computer scientist/choreographer Christian ‘Mio’ Loclair, digital anthropologist/social psychologist Pamela Pavliscak, Eyeware Co-Founder Serban Mogos, experiential tech innovator Kim Arazi, and Deep Science Partner Inmaculada Martinez.
