Latest Blogs and Content
As I mentioned in the opening, I’ve become somewhat of a ‘Chandler Bing’ to my friends and family. They don’t really have a clue what I do as a job. My kids say that I am in charge of all the robots, my wife knows that it has something to do with chatbots, my friends think that they know everything about it because of chatGPT and my parents still think I work for Orange, 21 years after leaving.
So, having thought long and hard about what I do, what it is called and how to explain it, I wrote this blog - Jobs of the Future: AI Strategist.
If you’ve got something to say that is related to Conversational AI careers or career development or you’d like to tell your own story of your career, then feel free to reach out. I’d love to feature some guest blogs.
