  • My name is Mario Vasilescu, from Toronto, Canada. I’m the winner of a national Canadian competitionfor predicting the workplace in the year 2040, and as a result I also received the opportunity of working a 6 month contract with the Institute for Leadership here at BPI. I have also been working on a project for just over a year – I am an entrepreneur, cofounder of www.rewordly.com, a startup that aims to help you make the most of your reading and writing online, across all platforms, by organizing it better, in one place, and allowing you to use it for your personal branding.Claire thought it would be interesting for me to present my winning concept but, since it is quite advanced for some, and is based on current trends in digital and social media, I felt it would be interesting to first present on these topics and, should you still be interested, you could come to the next English presentation in 6 weeks, when I will present my concept.

    3. 3. Copyright Mario Vasilescu 2013 | let’s connect: mvas.ca/connect WHICH MEANS… Unique, broad perspective Engineering, Business Management (and Entrepreneurship), and Design experience provides a distinct perspective that is well-rounded and actionable. Well-placed demographically I believe in Generation Flux (psychographic representation of the current diverse, fast- paced workforce), but I also believe Generation Y is leading the new wave of change. While Generation X might understand hardware better, Generation Y connects with digital-social platforms better (tech-enabled social games, social networks, social learning, etc.). Experience in digital platforms, engagement, gamification, branding… Experience (and passion) in the critical areas that are challenging businesses in today’s highly competitive global economy.
