Welcome to Season 3 of Connected Intelligence - a podcast about all the things we bring to work that aren’t actually about the work.
Sinead is a futurist and the founder of WAYE, an organization that helps prepare the next generation of business leaders for a world radically transformed by technology.
Some may know her as the author of the Vogue article “I Am a Model and I Know That Artificial Intelligence Will Eventually Take My Job”. Sinead has given formal addresses to presidents, royalty, and Fortune 500 leaders on topics ranging from cybersecurity to artificial intelligence. She also gave a TEDx Talk in 2022 on the ethics of avatars and currently serves as a strategic advisor to the United Nations International Telecommunication Union on digital inclusion.
Every day, over 10,000 Millennials and Gen Zs tune into Bovell’s platforms to hear her take on technology and the future, as well as her future forecasts on the ethical challenges of emerging technologies. To date, she has educated over 200,000 young entrepreneurs on the future of technology.
In this episode, we learn about Sinead’s origin story, to her unlikely journey to the centre of emerging technologies, and her vision for the future of work – she brings an open and imaginative quality to every conversation she is in.
In March 2023, Sinead is leading a keynote panel at Creative Destruction Lab’s (CDL) Apprentice Summit - a virtual international symposium of emerging technology for any high school student who is interested in learning more about STEM and entrepreneurship.
