Priscilla is recognized by Forbes 30under30, is winner of several competitions (Singularity University’s first Global Impact Competition in the CEE region in 2012, The Next Web’s Innovation Challenge, TechMatch Europe Silicon Valley, Morgan Stanley CTO Summits), wrote several articles about the future of innovation and education and why collective creativity will contribute to breakthrough products and services, and how it strengthens our self-esteem and drives a happier and higher quality of life, implemented +500 Open Innovation projects and taught innovation courses across the globe on six continents, and has supported the OECD to involve thousands of people in designing more inclusive societies.


Leaders and teams who are navigating the future of work today are grappling with one increasingly important question: How can individuals and organisations build creativity and innovation skills while connecting remotely? In this interactive session, we will not only analyse how the most innovative leaders of the 21st-century have built important skills for their team, but we will invite participants for a live creative problem solving session on how to equip the future workforce with an abundant mindset.


What are the psychological backgrounds of further developing creative skills and how will it happen in the future of work? Remote work has exploded over the last few years. According to a report, 36% of the workforce will be remote by 2020. However, this shift in work culture led to a reduction in creativity for some. We will discuss why and how we can use technology to bridge this gap and engage people and teams in their environment of choice. In this session, we will go through lessons from the most innovative business leaders, CEOs or founders of the 21st-century to analyze how they have built their skills and what we can learn from that. What are the tools and models that still apply in a remote world while providing space for creativity and productivity at the same time? We will engage and align everyone to demonstrate how creative problem solving can happen live and equip the future workforce with an abundant mindset.
