STRATEGIC CONSULANT, AMAZON BEST-SELLING AUTHOR, SPEAKER, LINKEDIN'S 2017 TOP INFLUENCER ON LIFELONG LEARNING & THE FUTURE OF WORK
Future-of-work strategist Heather E. McGowan helps leaders prepare their people and organizations for our VUCA (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, and Ambiguous) World. As a virtual keynote speaker, Heather gives lucidity to complex topics through her research rich, graphic frameworks and powerful metaphors. McGowan believes the global pandemic has accelerated our progress towards the future of work and is ushering in the Human Capital Era, a period of time she predicts in which expenditure in human potential is the greatest opportunity for return on investment. In 2017, LinkedIn ranked Heather as its number one global voice for education. NYT columnist Thomas Friedman describes her as “the oasis” when it comes to insights into the future of work. McGowan is the coauthor of The Adaptation Advantage: Let Go and Learn Fast to Thrive in the Future of Work (April 2020).
