This is the fourth instalment of the (Re)Design Your Life series which explores how the lives of individuals across the globe are getting on, how their lives have changed, what their coping mechanisms are and insights into what the future holds for us.

In this episode Vince chats with Mike Walsh, author and CEO of Tomorrow, a global consultancy on designing companies for the 21st century. As an international nomad and futurist, Mike advises some of the world’s biggest organisations on digital transformation and disruptive innovation in this new era of machine intelligence.

Mike travels over 300 days a year worldwide: researching trends, collecting case studies and presenting on the future of business and leadership.

His most recent book, The Algorithmic Leader: How to be smart when machines are smarter than you, offers a hopeful and practical guide for reinventing leadership and organisations in the modern world.

Mike and Vince delve into the future of our world particularly the massive changes that will occur post pandemic. One such shift will be the increased implementation of AI which has the potential to create mass unemployment unless properly readied for. Mike outlines a number of ways in which individuals can prepare for the changes which will inevitably occur and how you can walk a completely new career path.

The pair also touch on the resilience of the human race, the polarisation of science and information in today’s world, how interconnected differing cultures actually are and the importance of accepting data.
