65% of pre-school children today will work in a job or career that doesn’t currently exist. Can we train a generation of student and business leaders on something that does not exist?

Garry Moise says the answer is yes. While we may not know the job title or requirements, schools and businesses can teach the skills needed to succeed in the future.

What skills? Leadership, social/cultural awareness, emotional intelligence, collaboration, and critical thinking. These are skills that must be taught from the earliest days in school, and re-enforced in business because these skills are required regardless of industry or profession.

The future is ever-evolving, presenting challenges and opportunities that demand a generation equipped with the skills to navigate change and thrive in an interconnected world. In this blog, we delve into the theme of 'Building a Future Ready Generation' and gain insights from an esteemed educator, mentor, and TEDx speaker, Garry Moise. Join us on a journey that explores the importance of education, personal development, and adapting to change in shaping a generation prepared for the future.
