Keynote Speaker. Making waves….
With over 20 years of experience in communication and organizational change, Margot strongly pleas for increased awareness of the human potential. As co-creator of The Human Quotient she is on a mission to unlock the full potential of humanity. In other words, to be more human. To facilitate the shift from Homo Sapiens, where we distinguish ourselves by being wise, to Homo Conexus, where we distinguish ourselves by our connecting abilities. In her talks she combines a philosophical vision with a practical approach. Because in the end it’s not the words, but the impact that counts.
After more than four centuries of focus on our rational abilities – thanks to René Descartes – the world now needs a new calling. Because we are reaching the limits of our rational abilities. It’s time for the shift from Homo Sapiens (wise man) to Homo Conexus (connected man). But not just in a digital way…
Artificial Intelligence will definitely increase our wellbeing. But it also requires us to rethink our own position as human beings. While embracing what technology brings us, we should revisit what makes us unique: our ability, but also our need for being connected.
If we acknowledge the power of every individual, be inclusive and embrace diversity, we can do amazing things. Because in diversity we find our power. However, our system prefers ‘normality’. Also our idea of ‘normal’ has become so slim, that it’s pretty difficult to fit in. And therefore we need to hack the system.
