ACP November Webinar
What’s a Resilience Professional to Do? Charting a Career Path in the Future World of Robots.
Date: Wednesday, November 15
Time: 12:00 Noon – 1:00 pm Eastern
Presenter: Chloe Demrovsky, President/CEO, DRI International
With the news media telling us that robots are coming for our white-collar jobs, including their own writing and reporting jobs, it may sound like our worst sci-fi, Terminator-inspired fears of artificial intelligence are right around the corner. Our world is changing at a dizzying pace, thanks to advances in technology and the internet, but if you think it’s time to throw your hands up, order takeout (online, of course), and let the robots take over, think again. Computers still can’t do it alone, especially protecting our businesses and families from risk.
This session will talk about how the career path of the resilience professional is changing to meet this new world. How are the job requirements changing, what exactly is a ‘resilience professional’, and what is DRI International doing to make sure that Certified Professionals stay current? And who knows? Maybe it’s time to make friends with the robots and work with them to prepare for the consequences of living in our increasingly risky world and beyond -- at least we know that they’ll be useful when we’re taking selfies on Mars.
