Share

Our mindset is a critical factor in how we approach the world, create opportunities, solve problems and pave uncharted paths. At present children today will be employed in jobs that don’t exist today and by the time freshman today graduate from college much of what they learned this year will be outdated. This is a direct reflection of how fast things are changing.

This presentation delivered Dr. Lydia Kostopoulos to Morgan Stanley in Glasgow, Scotland offers perspectives on how to reframe our mindset for the next decade and examples of those who created new platforms, others who built creative value propositions, and others who were able to anticipate what others couldn’t imagine.
