In this session, Claire Haidar, CEO and founder of WNDYR and Pattyrn, makes us think about work, HR, technology and the future of work more authenticity. More importantly, she analyses the present chaos and disruption and deciphers a meaning in them.

Part chaos, part rocket fuel, Claire Haidar is a technology entrepreneur, student pilot age and future thinker about all things human, work and play.

Human acceleration and education have always been my two biggest passions. I see work as a giant playground.
Claire Haidar

Claire challenges the status quo, pushes the boundaries on what is possible, and asks the big questions that a lot of us are afraid to really confront and act on. If you want your mental boxes to be challenged; if you want to color outside the lines, then invite Claire to challenge your team or audience on topics such as the future of work in a world of chaos and robots, play as an essential part of work, human acceleration in an automated world and visualizing organizations at work as playgrounds.
