In this motivational speech technology futurist Shara Evans shares her inspiring personal story of how she became a business leader and globally renowned futurist — whilst overcoming personal challenges that would have been viewed as impossible barriers by most.

  • Rising through the ranks of corporate America, becoming a global business leader and how she was inspired to start her own companies
  • Business leadership
  • Practical tips on adapting her business strategies in line with market changes
  • Career changes that saw her move from software engineering, to program management, sales and marketing, business owner, futurist, keynote speaker and global media commentator
  • How she became a technology futurist
  • The steps she took to become a global A-list keynote speaker
  • Fighting back after being diagnosed with an inflammatory disease in 2015, after specialist medical professionals in several countries told her there was no cure — but she found one anyway through her investigation of cutting edge bioelectromagnetic technologies, nutritional supplements and meditation!

Shara is also happy to include examples in this speech from the vast array of technology topics that she covers as a futurist such as: AI, robots, cyber security, privacy, alternative energy, cutting edge health technologies, telecoms.
