EMERGING INDUSTRIES & The Future of Work: Part 3 of 3

  • Medicine Hat College 299 College Drive Medicine Hat, AB, T1A Canada (map)

KEYNOTE SPEAKER

Gianni Kovacevic is an investor, author and sought-after strategist in the energy divestment movement. Drawing from over 20,000 hours of research in incumbent and modern energy themes, he is frequently interviewed by the media and has enlightened audiences around the world with his unique brand of storytelling.

His recently published book, My Electrician Drives a Porsche?, was introduced to audiences by way of a one-of-a-kind journey across America in an all-electric Tesla, now credited as the world’s first zero emission book tour. Widely considered as a must read in investment circles, the book is written as an allegory that showcases how technology and human progress will impact every facet of our lives.

Through artful storytelling and finely illustrated analysis, Gianni Kovacevic engages audiences about the fusion between technology and energy. He shares how this will impact your life, your business and your future. Will you have more or less customers in the future and what is the impact of established economies versus emerging economies? Audiences learn about the global shifts in energy production that are changing our world, our work place and the role technology plays and how environmental concerns will naturally figure into the economy of the future.

LOCAL DEVELOPER

You don’t have to drive far in southern Alberta to see an old rusted windmill in the back corner of someone’s yard. Interesting how a great idea lived its course, gave way to the modern grid and now is being reinvented in the form of wind energy. Barclay Tanner, Senior Operations Manager at VESTAS will talk and give a picture of what work within wind energy looks like, how it impacts the community around it and what the future could look like for southern Alberta.
