About the Event

In remarks titled The Future of Work in the 4th Industrial Revolution, Governor Pawlenty will speak about preparing Minnesota for the profound changes the next wave of technology will trigger as Artificial Intelligence and other advanced technologies will dramatically increase automation in almost every business sector and profession.  He will describe how those changes will increase speed, precision and productivity but also the nature of education, training, and work itself. Governor Pawlenty will describe how leaders can understand the coming changes and develop plans to use those changes as a force for good for the people, places and causes they serve.

Attendees will also have the opportunity to engage in Q&A with Governor Pawlenty. If you have questions you'd like to submit in advance, please email them to pbaker@greatermankato.com.
