How Technology Can Power a Better Future

Full access to the livestream is available to our entire global community. Register to stream all the VOICES sessions, free of charge.

From supply chain innovation to Web3 community building, 3D printing and crowdfunding, technology has the potential to improve our lives and solve problems in incredible new ways.

Join us for Session 3 of BoF VOICES 2022 on Nov. 30, to meet a daring group of entrepreneurs, innovators, and scientists who are using technology to power a better future.

  • Dame Stephanie Shirley CH will share how she established a software company from her dining table in the 1960s and set new precedents for women in tech today.
  • Lisa Morales-Hellebo will discuss the paradigm shift to localised supply chains within fashion, and why fixing the old model is no longer a viable solution.
  • Sriram Krishnasamy, President and CEO of FedEx Dataworks, will make the case for leveraging data to digitise supply chains and develop solutions to meet and exceed your customers’ expectations.
  • Musa Tariq, CMO of GoFundMe, will join fashion designer Phillip Lim to share their story on utilising technology to build multi-channel fundraising campaigns — and social virality in the process.
  • Brett Hagler and Alexandria Lafci, co-founders of non-profit organisation New Story, will join fellow non-profit founders Jean Guo and Sneha Sheth, to share how and why they are leveraging new technologies to power a better future.
  • Harley Finkelstein, president of Shopify, will share how the platform is harnessing its technologies to uplift entrepreneurs and promote conscious consumption across its user base.
  • Toby Shorin, a writer and technologist, will debunk the ways in which Web3 can contribute to public good, turn customers into communities and consider the technology’s philanthropic potential.
  • Imran Chaudhri, former director of design at Apple, will posit the post-smartphone era, and what it will mean for both brands and consumers.

Each of the five BoF VOICES 2022 content sessions will be livestreamed for the global BoF community, from Nov. 29 to Dec. 1. REGISTER NOW to join us for the whole event or attend the sessions of your choice, free of charge.
