Corinne Hoisington, an internet systems technology expert and educator whose popular presentations and published works have garnered international attention, will speak about business leadership in the digital age during the next Fridays at Findlay breakfast. She will also offer a separate, free lecture on virtual reality.
Sponsored by First Federal Bank, Fridays at Findlay is a lecture series that provides opportunities to hear from a variety of organizational leaders about superior leadership practices. The Sept. 29 breakfast will begin at 7:30 a.m. in Winebrenner Theological Seminary’s TLB Auditorium.
Hoisington’s Fridays at Findlay speech is titled “Future-Proof Your Business and Your Career From Artificial Intelligence, Automation and Whatever’s Next.” She has more than 25 years of college teaching experience, has written more than 20 textbooks with Cengage Learning/National Geographic, and is a frequent keynote speaker at conferences and events such as South by Southwest in Austin, Texas, and Executive LIVE 2017 in London, and those sponsored by corporations such as Microsoft and Capital One.
Hoisington urges business leaders to view technology as an asset, not a liability, and to not fear it. She advises professionals to make sure they are working on their business, and not just in their business. The digital age of disruption, with its advancing automated technology and intuitive innovations, is changing workplaces and necessitating adaptation to remain solvent and relevant, she maintains.
The next Fridays at Findlay speaker will be Hillsdale College President Larry Arnns, Ph.D. His presentation, scheduled for Oct. 27, is titled “Churchill: On Leadership and Genius.”
On Thursday, Sept. 28, Hoisington will present at 7 p.m. in the Davis Street Building, Room 2225. This free talk, titled “So. Much.Tech.: #AugmentedRealityLearningExperiences,” will argue that the digital world should not simply be experienced on flat screens. “Virtual and augmented reality is changing education,” Hoisington notes, and “what started out as something that was simply ‘cool’ has become a way to engage learners like never before.”
The Thursday presentation will also include hands-on activities that introduce the Oculus Rift and HoloLens.
