Essential Leadership Skills in Data and AI


The future is not something we predict, it is something we create.

When working from this premise, it is essential to think about the kind of future we want to co-create together.

This requires us - whether we are in a formal leadership role or not - to think about the vision, values and impact we’re creating with the Data and AI products we build.

In your sphere of influence this means choices you make in designing, building and launching Data and AI products. We’ll speak about how essential leadership skills like visioning, strategy, ethics, and getting to know your values play a role in building the future we want to see together. You’ll walk away with hands on practical tools (such as my Ethics in AI Canvas).
