Technology. The pace of change in our lives is immense. During my relatively short span as a doctor I’ve witnessed vast changes in how we use technology in medicine, from the books that are now apps, to the large machines that are now handheld devices in addition to genomic sequencing and the promise of personalised medicine.
Talking with me today is Nichol Bradford, CEO & Founder of the Willow Group and the Executive Director and co-founder of the Transformative Technology Lab. She co-founded and built transformativetech.org, a global ecosystem dedicated to educating, gathering, and activating wellbeing tech founders, investors, and innovators. She helps founders leverage exponential tech for mental and emotional wellbeing, social and emotional wellness, and human potential.
She’s also a lecturer at Stanford University, has an MBA from the Wharton School of Business, and attended Singularity University’s Global Solutions program.
What’s even more impressive about Nichol is that she held executive positions at a number of gaming companies including Activision Blizzard and Disney, and as it turns out there is a lot that the wellness industry can learn from these industries.
We talk about Nichol's journey to gaming, her experience working in Asia, what transformative tech entails, the health insights that technology can provide us and the emerging technologies that excite Nichol the most.
