Human Intelligence 2.0

How to manage change in an era of disruption and build a collective future?

It is no ordinary time in the history of civilisation. The world is moving faster than we can think; so we have to change our thinking!
The transformation upon us means at least three things…Fear, Change and Opportunity.

We face a host of wicked problems, risks and systemic challenges beyond the reach of existing institutions and traditional authority structures. Problems like climate change, increasing mental and chronic illness, scarcity of resources, automation of jobs and Artificial Intelligence, unethical governance and growing inequality require unprecedented collaboration among different organisations, sectors, communities and nations. More than ever before, we need to foster collective leadership, lateral thinking and inspiring initiatives to manage the massive transition ahead.

What if you could fast-track your thinking about change and the future? As the pace of change accelerates, we are increasingly asking individuals and organisations to become more agile. How can organisations develop creative, inclusive, resilient and innovative cultures and develop the agility, empathy, generosity and Human Intelligence 2.0 skills required to manage and prepare for a rapidly changing world and the Fourth Industrial Revolution?

Key Learnings

  • Fast-track your thinking about change and the future
  • Human Intelligence 2.0 tools to develop agile growth, mindsets and skills, innovation, resilience, performance and leadership
  • How to develop more right-brained, creative and collaborative thinking to solve wicked collective problems
  • Insights into harnessing generosity, diversity and inclusion to build communities that care
  • Case studies to inspire action
Keynote by Tania de Jong

Being Human in an Age of Machines – the mental health challenge

“Things are getting better and better and worse and worse, faster and faster, simultaneously.”

What does it mean to be human in an age of increasing technological acceleration and growing disconnection?

We face a host of wicked problems, risks and systemic challenges beyond the reach of existing institutions and traditional authority structures. Problems like climate change, increasing mental and chronic illness, scarcity of resources, automation of jobs and Artificial Intelligence, unethical governance and growing inequality require unprecedented collaboration among different organisations, sectors, communities and nations. More than ever before, we need to foster collective leadership, lateral thinking, inspiring initiatives and true innovation to manage the massive transition ahead.

Yet we talk more to boxes and screens than one another. Rates of loneliness, social isolation and mental illness are increasing and we are numbing our fear and anxiety through a range of substances.   One in five Australians now have a chronic mental illness. One in eight of us, and one in four older people, are on anti-depressants (up 95% in 15 years) and suicide rates are increasing.  Climate change adds to technology change and Is causing significant additional anxiety, particularly amongst younger people.

If our emotional state as human beings doesn’t change to match the accelerating pace of change we are seeing, is the cost of this going to be ever increasing rates of mental illness?
We have to find new ways of adapting our minds, our emotions and our world view to the accelerating pace of change. The very nature of our consciousness will need to change for mankind to survive and thrive.

Key Learnings

  • The current mental health statistics and solutions available
  • How to raise our consciousness and build a collective future
  • How neuroscience can help us change our brains and reconnect to self and others
  • Ways to empower people to find their purpose so that they can unleash their true creative potential
  • How to include diverse voices and help people to feel a sense of belonging
  • Why psychedelic-assisted therapies could be a potential game-changer

What if your organisation could awaken the potential of your people, through the development of a creative and collaborative voice?

Audiences will walk away from this presentation inspired to implement positive human collisions in the workplace and their communities, and the ability to create a pipeline for innovation. They will also gain insights into how creativity boosts performance, inspires leadership and ignites transformation.

Key Learnings

  • How to build a collaborative, purpose-driven and innovative culture
  • Insights into harnessing diversity and creating opportunity
  • Enhanced creative thinking and how to develop agile growth mindsets

Psychedelic-assisted therapy for mental health: It’s coming and you should know about it!

We talk more to boxes and screens than one another. Rates of loneliness, social isolation and mental illness are increasing and we are numbing our fear and anxiety through a range of substances. One in five Australians now have a chronic mental illness. One in eight of us, and one in four older people, are on anti-depressants (up 95% in 15 years) and suicide rates are already high. Climate change adds to technology change and Is causing significant additional anxiety, particularly amongst younger people. We have a mental health pandemic which is far more serious and long-lasting than the current virus pandemic.

If our emotional state as human beings doesn’t change to match the accelerating pace of change we are seeing, is the cost of this going to be ever increasing rates of mental illness? We have to find new ways of adapting our minds, our emotions and our world view to the accelerating pace of change. The very nature of our consciousness will need to change for mankind to survive and thrive.

In the quest for new treatment options for mental illness and psychiatric disorders, attention is being paid to the potential role of psychedelic drugs as adjuncts to psychotherapy for a wide array of maladies of the mind, including depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder and some addictions. Trials are also underway for dementia, OCD and eating disorders.

Key Learnings

  • The current mental health statistics and solutions available
  • How to raise our consciousness and build a collective future
  • Why psychedelic-assisted therapies could be a potential game-changer
  • Identify the psychedelic substances and how and why they work in the brain
  • Illustrate the overview of evidence
  • Ascertain the potential applications in depression, anxiety, trauma and addiction
  • Future directions in Australia
