    SACC Arizona and SWEA Professional invites you to an informal Happy Hour Speaker event to make new contacts and gain new insights.

    This time we feature strategic technologist John Bevell, who have looked into the future for you.

    Technology is changing organizational process and procedure across all organizations. In this session I look at Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, and the future of work to de-mystify some of the larger changes we see. 

    Anything that can be automated will be, but the good news that humans created technology and we still live in a human word. Soft skills, creativity, collaboration, and knowledge of technology are all areas that deserve focus in preparing for the future. 

    In this session I dive into those four areas to help create a pathway for understanding where technology is headed and to make sure that you have a job in the future of work. Lifelong learning isn’t just for nerds.
