Drawing on her background as an engineer and experiential architect who has worked with some of the world’s largest brands, Meredith O’Shaughnessy will take us on a journey through the nexus of innovation, storytelling, and neuroscience to explore how we can all challenge the status quo.

With a deep respect for the human spirit and our planet, Meredith will share how her curiosity and strategic expertise have enabled her to push boundaries for top-tier clients, inspire change, and forecast future trends that guide us towards a less enraged, more engaged, empathetic, and sustainable future.

Her talk at the Intellectual Forum will explore the art of unpicking complicated ideas and infusing them with life, using an integrated, multi-disciplinary, and multi-sensory approach that creates profound emotional connections with audiences. The session is an invitation to discover how immersive narratives can entertain and also enlighten, influence, and drive meaningful action while we stand at a crossroads of global change.
