    Watch as futurists, researchers, educators, Autodesk executives and senior leaders from enterprise accounts explore the future of work. From AR/VR and machine learning to future work trends and hiring new talent, the AU 2016 Leadership Forum included Geoff Colvin, an award-winning thinker, author, and broadcaster, who explored today’s most significant trends in business. Colvin is an editor and columnist for FORTUNE magazine. His latest book is Humans Are Underrated: What High Achievers Know that Brilliant Machines Never Will.

    Jon Pittman, Autodesk VP, Corporate Strategy, and his team discussed the need to re-evaluate relationships with our machine creations. While Randy Swearer, Autodesk VP, Education, discussed changes in education and how those in today’s economy might compete for next generation employees.

    Danny Guillory, Autodesk Director, Global Diversity and Inclusion, facilitated a discussion with guest speakers and attendees on building a team of tech-savvy, lifelong learners. And Mickey McManus, Autodesk Fellow and author of Trillions, introduced an exercise in design thinking to identify some next steps in building the future of work for your organization and team.

    We also heard stories of trial and success from leaders at Ford, GE, Arup, the Department of Defense, and elsewhere. Before Callan Carpenter, Autodesk VP, Global Named Accounts wrapped up the day.
