Event description

Description

As part of Vivid Ideas, Business Events Sydney (BESydney) is again presenting its annual Sydney Speaker Series.

Future Human: Discuss

Creationist, evolutionist, somewhere in-between or beyond…regardless of your position, there is little doubt that major changes today will alter our tomorrow forever - technology, our social systems, and even our bodies are evolving.

What will “Future Human” look like? And, will we want it staring back at us in the mirror?

Join us for this thought-provoking session, where we will hear from prominent Australians who are living the future through their work.
