Guest Speaker Bio:
Lauren Grey Flanagan, MPA, is a communications and artificial intelligence (AI) strategist advising companies on how to empower employees through engagement. Engaged employees drive revenue, cross-sell, and empower themselves and others to become better stewards in their professional and personal lives, which improves the community as a whole. With USI Insurance Services, Lauren serves as an employee benefits consultant designing cost containment strategies that positively impact bottom line forecasts; and, the results for her clients are insurmountable.
She is also learning about the rapidly changing communications climate, largely due to technological advances; where the intersection of work life and personal life collide. She began studying data patterns four years ago and in September 2019 completed certification in Artificial Intelligence Strategy from the UC Berkeley School of Information. Education in AI is representative of what she believes is the beginning of a major cultural shift, directly impacting how we succeed in the fourth industrial revolution.
As a first time author, her new book, 1001 Watts, released on Amazon June 21, 2019, is the output of her education and life experiences. She has a passion for data and healthcare, information, communications, and technology. Her continued education, and earning a Master of Public Affairs (MPA) degree, has led her to where she is today: An advocate of Human Capital policies centered on inclusion and diversity.
Her research findings illustrate that women around the world are searching for a new way to connect, to follow their vision, to be guided and nourished. 1001 Watts is a guide that will help women navigate a new path of change in the fourth industrial revolution. Her mission is to bring hope and community to all women at a crossroads around the world and accelerate a path of change and light the paths of others through education. A percentage of the profits from this book will be donated to education funds that support women. https://www.1001watts.com/
