SRAX (NASDAQ: SRAX), a financial technology company that developed Sequire, a SaaS platform designed to unlock data and insights for publicly traded companies, has announced an impressive lineup of notable keynote speakers to present at its 2021 Sequire EdTech Conference (https://nnw.fm/jTQf7).
This one-day investor event featuring more than ten leading virtual work and learning companies is intended for all investors interested in leveraging potential growth opportunities emerging in the world of learning.
The world of education has transformed radically since the start of the pandemic, and the question is how the landscape will look in the future and what opportunities lie ahead. A diverse audience, including institutional investors, retail investors, family offices, venture capitalists, public and emerging growth companies, and private equity firms, will have an unparalleled opportunity to meet major figures in the education space to tackle these questions and reveal what’s next for the education industry.
Sessions will cover topics such as 5 Major Trends in Education with Patrick Brothers, the Co-Founder & Co-CEO of HolonIQ, a global market intelligence platform for education. Also a member of the World Economic Forum and B20 Education and Employment Task Force of B20, Brothers is committed to revolutionizing how the world learns.
Other notable keynote speakers include Dr. Ann Marie Sastry and Mary Juhas, who will host the Higher Education and the Future of Work session. Prior to becoming the President and CEO of Amesite, an award-winning AI software company focused on improving learning, Dr. Sastry co-founded and led Sakti3, a company recognized as one of MIT’s 50 Smartest Companies in 2015. As a scientist with a knack for creating companies that get raved about by their employees (Amesite was the winner of 2020 Best and Brightest Companies to Work For and Sakti3 won the Crain’s Detroit Business Cool Places to Work Prize), Dr. Sastry was also recognized with some of the highest honors in her scientific fields. She will co-host the session with Mary C. Juhas, an associate vice president in the Office of Research at Ohio State University. Juhas is committed to developing research leaders through the recruitment, retention, and advancement of women faculty in the STEM disciplines.
The final session, co-hosted by Dr. Sastry and Jonathan Satchell, a training industry veteran with nearly 30 years of experience, will aim to tackle The Coming Decades of Disruptive Innovation in Education. Satchell’s beginnings in the industry date back to 1997 when he acquired EBC, a training video provider he transformed into a bespoke e-learning company. He later became interim MD of Epic, a custom content e-learning company he acquired with Andrew Brode and transformed into LTG, the global, fast-growing, full-service digital learning and talent management company.
Other keynote speakers include names such as Julia Pugachevsky, the Education and Personal Development editor on Insider’s Reviews team covering online courses, books, and other career development and self-improvement products, as well as Barbie Brewer, the Chief People Officer at Netflix working passionately to enable remote work and promote inclusiveness.
Participants will also have a unique opportunity to participate in the Fireside Chat with Gagan Biyani, an Indian American serial entrepreneur, marketer, and journalist who co-founded Udemy, one of the world’s most renowned online education companies. He will share insights on Lessons from Building an EdTech Unicorn.
Virtual work and online learning have been gaining traction over the past few years, offering compelling growth opportunities as the world of remote workplaces and digital classrooms make strides.
