Demystifying Artificial Intelligence: A Day in the Life of AI in 2025
In this presentation, Amber Mac will share how AI is going to change the way we live, work, and play over the next few years. Using the latest research, engaging visuals, and practical examples, she will take audience members on a day-long journey to share the real-life impact that this technology will have on everything – from the way we manage work (e.g. business automation), to the way we manage our health (e.g. cancer detection), to the way we manage transportation (e.g. autonomous vehicles). For business professionals, the stakes are high. While many speakers talk about the impact of artificial intelligence, Amber will show attendees why and how they need to adapt to the AI revolution today.

There Are No Barriers – Only Solutions
Award-winning author and extreme adventurer Neal Petersen completed two amazing journeys in his life. One was a single-handed, nine-month-long yacht race that took him 27,000 miles around the world in a boat he designed and built himself. The one before it was an even more arduous and eventful trip just to make it to the starting line — overcoming poverty, a childhood disability, and racial prejudice in apartheid-era South Africa.
