Collective[i]®, a recognized leader in AI-enabled digital sales transformation, today announced that Deanna M. Mulligan, Board Chair of The Guardian Life Insurance Company of America, is confirmed to participate in Collective[i] Forecast, a series of live, virtual events, that features the world's preeminent leaders and innovators sharing their knowledge about the innovation that is disrupting and transforming how we work and live.
Collective[i] Forecast featuring Ms. Mulligan will take place Thursday, December 3, 2020 at 4 P.M. Eastern, and will explore the topic "Workforce interrupted: Closing the skills gap." During this interactive discussion Ms. Mulligan will address why reskilling and upskilling employees is so crucial due to the massive disruptions that are occurring in the global workforce as a result of advances in technology (including artificial intelligence) accelerated by the COVID-19 recession. Ms. Mulligan has become a critical voice for adapting to the structural changes accompanying advances in technology, a topic she covers in depth in her best-selling book, Hire Purpose: How Smart Companies Can Close the Skills Gap.
Ms. Mulligan has deep experience in guiding large organizations through periods of disruption. She was named Guardian's CEO in 2011, a position she held for nine years, during which she was the only female CEO of a Fortune 500 Company in New York City. She has been named one of Fortune's "50 Most Powerful Women in Business" and one of Crain's New York Business' "50 Most Powerful Women in New York" five times each.
Hosted by Collective[i] co-Founder and Chairperson, Heidi Messer, Collective[i] Forecast brings together a diverse group of attendees across all sectors and roles, including senior business executives, industry leaders, entrepreneurs, advisors, journalists, as well as Collective[i] clients and partners, with the goal to help our community adapt to a changing playing field and be inspired to imagine what is possible.
