My Future Business Interview with CHRISTOPHER BISHOP
#futurist #jobs #christopherbishop
Hi, and welcome to the show!
On today’s My Future Business Show I have the pleasure of spending time with workplace futurist, TEDx speaker, LinkedIn Learning instructor and former IBMer CHRISTOPHER BISHOP.
Christopher writes and speaks at universities and corporate settings about emerging technologies including AI, crypto assets, blockchain, augmented and virtual reality and robotics.
He is also a nonlinear, multimodal careerist who has had eight careers so far – including touring rock musician (played with Robert Palmer), jingle producer (sang on the first Kit Kat TV commercial “Gimme A Break”) and Web site project manager (developed Johnson & Johnson’s first corporate Web site).
Chris also spent 15 years at IBM in a variety of roles including business strategy consultant and communications executive driving social media adoption and the use of virtual worlds for training and events.
Based on this atypical career path, Chris developed a program called “How to succeed at jobs that don’t exist yet” to give today’s learners insight into how to navigate the new world of work.
He has shared this perspective at various universities including Baruch, Columbia, Duke, Queens College, Stern School of Business at NYU, Texas A&M and Union College. Chris recently recorded a live-action course for LinkedIn Learning called “Future-proofing your data science career” – which went live in April 2020.
In addition, Chris co-authored a white paper last year with MIT Media Lab professor Sandy Pentland titled Blockchain+AI+Human”, describing the business possibilities as well as the powerful socio-cultural implications of connecting AI and blockchain.
