Innovation Hub has been postponed and will be rescheduled at a later date.

Presented by the Orlando Regional Chamber, a core component of the Orlando Economic Partnership

Join Dr. Dale A. Brill and The Future School’s Yvette Montero Salvatico and Frank Spencer for an exploration of digital twins—a component of artificial intelligence used to expand and accelerate businesses’ innovation capacity. Learn the basics of this emerging technology that creates “what-if systems” allowing businesses to evaluate production and process alternatives without disrupting current operations.

Exclusively for Chamber Executive level members, the conversation will walk attendees through Strategic Foresight techniques to establish a basic understanding of how digital twin technology (i.e. digital identities, mixed reality, semantic web, mirror cities, etc.) can create competitive advantage for your business.

GUEST SPEAKERS

Yvette Montero Salvatico
Principal and Managing Director
The Futures School  

Yvette’s Bio

Yvette is driven by the desire to help organizations and individuals discover their innate and untapped ability to create the future. With 15+ years of corporate finance, HR and leadership experience (including tenure as The Walt Disney Company’s first workplace futurist), she is uniquely positioned to successfully leverage the power of strategic foresight for complex organizations and entrepreneurial start-ups alike. Yvette understands that while leaders continually tout the necessity of futures thinking on their teams, they fail to structure their business processes in a way in which long-term thinking is valued or rewarded. This fundamental disconnect is what causes businesses and organizations to miss opportunities and ultimately fail, and it’s this disconnect that she consistently helps to address and eliminate.

Frank Spencer
