Intrapreneurs: The secret to organisations that innovate

Get ready to co-create the future. The Metaverses are here and so are you.
Welcome to a future where we have multiple identities, can belong to like-minded communities on and offline, and live a range of experiences without leaving our bedrooms. In this keynote, Roberta unveils how organisations and leaders need to prepare and evolve in a world governed by new technology; and what needs to be done to make organisations, and its products, attractive to a new and varied generation of consumers.

Despite evolution and research surrounding gender balance, we still create biased algorithms and datasets. In particular, managers fail to consider the attribution bias when leading their teams. Roberta considers the factors that enable this discourse, and what can be done to ensure the technology and processes, we rely on, can assist leaders and companies to make meaningful decisions without continuing to perpetuate bias.
The power of MULTIs – Don’t trap them in a job title

These individuals can often be seen as unfocused or too ambitious, but add the most value when empowered to bring their multiple identities and interests to work. In this keynote, Roberta gives leaders a fresh look into how leaders can leverage the best in Multis to create the most positive impact.
