"For me I enjoyed judging as it presented me with some pretty hard hitting quotes from these incredible participants. The one that struck me today was "we think we are modern but we are not". That hit home to me. "
Vice President, Analyst on Gartner's Technology Innovation team, based in Atlanta, GA (USA). Mr. Resnick's primary focus areas are Continuous Foresight, Futurism, Innovation, Design Thinking, Human Augmentation, Immersive Experiences, Metaverse, and the selection, recommendation, and implementation of strategic emerging technologies through trendspotting, tech radars, and the emerging tech wheel.
Riley McCullough, Australia
I’m a designer, strategist, and researcher with an ambition to create a better world. My experience has allowed me to explore complex problems spanning the humanitarian sector, municipal governance, environmental sustainability, and the built environment, with projects on four continents. Along the way, I’ve developed skills in human-centred design, strategic foresight, and innovation consulting.
In all my work, I’m committed to participatory human-centred design practices and incorporating multiple perspectives – the future cannot and should not be designed in a silo.
I love making new connections and am always happy to grow my network, so please reach out. Let’s connect and create!
