Jason Berry -- Echo Logistics

By the end of our hour with John, the team felt more informed and prepared for the future of technology. Further more, John took the time to answer some heavy questions at the end of his session, and even went the extra mile to stay, have lunch, and conversate with our employees. Overall, this was exactly what we were hoping for and then some, and we would absolutely recommend John to any organization looking to expand their understanding of AI, its applicable uses, wins, and shortcomings.

This executive workshop, taught as a half or full-day, works executive and leadership teams through strategic visioning on the future of AI in your organization. AI will affect every function and every industry; winning teams are those who are able to see into the future and know where technology is going. 

We use the 4 lenses framework to think about AI:

  • Automation
  • Workforce transformation
  • Pace of change
  • Competitive parity and data-centrism

This is a custom workshop facilitated in-person. 

Audience: leadership teams, boards of directors

Board Oversight and AI Strategy

As we have seen over the last year, AI is advancing rapidly and is here to stay. It will impact the strategic priorities of every organization – including those in “non-technical” industries. Board directors (independent and private equity sponsors) will increasingly have the responsibility of guiding management teams – however, many directors don’t have the technical background needed to make their highest impact.

This workshop prepares boards to successfully manage AI in the organization. We will:

  • Discuss best practices for AI responsibility at the board and management team levels
  • Engage the Four Lenses framework for identifying strategic and competitive threats and opportunities
  • Understand the pitfalls to be navigated, including forthcoming regulatory compliance of AI systems
  • Navigate a healthy relationship between board oversight and the management team 

Audience: boards of directors and management teams of public, private-equity backed, and closely held companies

Format: presented live online or as a live workshop

Certification: Auditing of AI Algorithms for Non-Technical Leaders

Forthcoming legislation around the world will require the audit of AI systems, often for bias of protected classes. For example, the EU AI act will require organizations that do business in Europe to go through complicated and costly certification procedures. A new set of auditors is required – working both within organizations and as outside consultants. 

We cover:

  • Why audit? The ethical and practical underpinnings of audit requirements
  • Forthcoming regulations that will require audit
  • Technical basics of algorithmic systems 
  • Audit methodologies
  • Statistical measurement of bias

Available formats: Asynchronous, live online, in person
