Each industrial revolution has brought out fear and progress of humanity at the same time. There were times when people were worried to walk into a lift which was not operated by a lift operator any longer but was controlled automatically. People have adapted. This workshop will explain what has triggered the 4th industrial revolution and will elaborate on how it will change and impact life, business and communication likewise. It will put a particular focus on how a risk manager and a company can long-term survive in the new risk and opportunity environment.
