A Futurist talk by
We’re excited to announce our first event, and open house! This Friday, September 29th we invite you to come visit The Common. Come work, hangout, check out the space, and stay for our first speaker series with Nikolas Badminton.
The Event - 7pm
Be prepared to expand your mind, then dull it slightly with a unique evening of engagement, socialising and connection.
World-renowned Futurist Speaker and researcher Nikolas Badminton* will talk about how the world is changing with the growth of exponential technologies that are recalibrating how we are working in the world. Nikolas will provide a view on where we are today with technology and how the ‘Exponential 7’ – Big Data, Artificial Intelligence, Internet of Things, Renewables, Personalized Medicine, Nanotechnology, and Quantum Computing – will change how we operate in this world.
This is an essential talk and Nikolas’ insights will inspire you and have you thinking differently.
The event will be a 45 minute presentation by Nik, followed by a Q&A session.
The After Party - 9pm
After the presentation there will be a chance to meet with Nik, and socialise with other people in the community.
This is a formal event, with a casual atmosphere. There will be a Dj to get down and funky, and a wide range of alcholic and non-alocholic refreshments for your socialising pleasure.
The Open House - 4-6pm
We’re inviting everyone to come down to The Common for an open house between 4 and 6pm.
If you want to work here, eat lunch in the garden, read a book, just be nosy, then let us know. More details on these daytime options to follow…
