Fastest-growing learning tech company, THRIVE, has announced the headline speakers for its free customer-only conference, THRIVE LIVE '23, set to take place on the 28th of September in London.

The highly anticipated L&D conference, THRIVE LIVE '23, hosted in London on the 28th of September 2023 will feature two influential figures from the business, tech, well-being and sports world. 

First up is Mo Gawdat, Google X's former Chief Business Officer, bestselling author, podcast host, and world-leading AI expert. In his keynote speech, Mo will share insights on staying ahead of the AI revolution. He'll show what we as humans and learning leaders can do to teach ourselves and our machines how to live better.

With more than 30 years of experience working with the world's most cutting-edge technology and his former role as Chief Business Officer of Google X, no one is better placed than Mo Gawdat to share how the Artificial Intelligence of the future works.

In a separate session, he'll also be sharing his insights and learnings from the incredible journey he's had finding the "happiness equation." Having written two books on engineering the path to joy which is all about overcoming negative self-talk and how we can influence our thought processes, Mo returns for a live Q&A to demonstrate how we can invest in our own happiness where delegates will get the opportunity to take part and ask their own questions.

Also headlining THRIVE LIVE is the inspirational Baroness Karren Brady of Knightsbridge CBE, CEO of West Ham United FC, and mentor and advisor on BBC One's The Apprentice.
