ARC has decided to cancel this year’s ConnectATL summit on the future of transportation and community due to the ongoing pandemic. We are hoping to host ConnectATL in 2021 and keep this important conversation going.

Future-of-work strategist Heather E. McGowan helps leaders prepare their people and organizations for what she calls the Fourth Industrial Revolution. The Third Industrial Revolution was marked by computerization and automation of physical labor, laying the foundation for the Fourth Industrial Revolution, which will be notable for the rapid advancement of technology tools into the domain of human knowledge work. In this world, humans must continuously learn and adapt, and with this transition comes information overload.
Heather gives lucidity to the complex topic of the future of work through her illuminating graphic frameworks and powerful metaphors, all backed by deep research. In 2017, LinkedIn ranked her as its number one global voice for education.
Pulitzer Prize–winning NYT columnist Thomas Friedman frequently quotes Heather in his books and columns and describes her as “the oasis” when it comes to insights into the future of work. Heather’s sessions help employees and leaders alike prepare for and adapt to jobs that do not yet exist. McGowan is the coauthor of The Adaptation Advantage (April 2020).
