Another hot one in the city VenCaf Community however, the show must go on! This week we are continuing with our “What’s Next?!” Theme by hosting our gathering titled, Finances, Functional Medicine & The Future. This gathering was focused on those topics, with key speakers alluding to what looks to be the new breakthrough insight or knowledge in those respective fields and how we can all tap into that. We learned about the importance of managing your businesses expenses, how healthcare is more than just pharmaceuticals and how AI could be beneficial or detrimental to our community. Now that you know what to expect, lets get into it!
To start we heard from Robin Stewart, CEO & Managing Director of MindBody Talent LLC. Robin brought to our attention the importance of an alternative healthcare past that of big pharma. Her solution was functional, integrative & personalized medicine, all of which are being tracked in their successes and progression MindBody Talent. Robin spoke to the benefit that alternative medicine can have by finding the origin of diseases as opposed to focusing on the symptoms.
Next we heard from Linda Pritchard, Owner & CEO of Fundamentals Image & Business Etiquette. Her session was dedicated to the future of the work place, how Soft Skills, such as compassion, understanding, forward thinking & empathy are becoming far more important in the recent years than years prior. At the same time we had Office Hours with Madison Smith, Financial Advisor for Edward Jones. Some might recognize Madison from some time ago as she is a reoccurring Office Hour Host. She was speaking to business expenses and how you can better manage them.
Finally we heard from Abhishek Kothari in his Session titled, Is AI Leading Us To Utopia or Dystopia?. Abhishek was very meticulous with breaking down the benefits and the detractors of what a pro-AI world could look like and how it could influence the human condition.
All in all, we had a very varied gathering this week and heard from a wide range of topics all of which seem to be on the edge of being “What’s Next” in our communities! We appreciate all the speakers and attendees who came out this week and braved the heat for us! It seems like the heat wave is going to stay for another week or two, so stay pool side VenCaf Community and enjoy your weekend! See you next Thursday!
