Events: Not the IR

Vivienne has continued consulting remotely with a diverse range of organizations around the world through COVID-19. Her talks cover everything from the science of long-term stress to data science for D&I, creating AI superpowers for kids to leveraging AI as a tool to understand the impact of policy. Whether her audience is executives, internal teams, young adults, students, or the Australian government, Vivienne has something spicy for everyone and we’ve received unanimously positive feedback. Dr. Ming’s breadth of knowledge and expertise in so many fields, paired with her fun and quirky delivery, has provided insight into our current struggle while also promoting community as dispersed communities grapple with new remote challenges.

If you or your organization are interested in setting up a remote conversation with Vivienne around technology and innovation, inclusion, remote work, COVID-19, or otherwise, please reach out to us at keynotes@socos.org.
