AI Artificial Intelligence workshops Erica Farmer Business Speaker at Great British Speakers


Artificial Intelligence (AI) is changing the world, and there is no doubt that most of us are using it in our roles, and in our day-to-day lives. Most people using it will not be experts in it. Therefore, it’s key that you engage the hearts and minds of your teams, clients, learners, and peers as part of your journey to adopt AI in your workplace.

The most forward-thinking of organisations are embracing the benefits that AI can bring to their business and their staff. Leaders are supported in enabling the required behaviours, digital ethics, and experiences for teams to build the skills needed.
But these aren’t just workplace skills, they are human skills that can be used in any personal or professional setting. To be successful, one must have a combination of AI, infrastructure, and people.

Erica has built three platforms to help upskill your team’s AI capabilities.

They’re available in various flexible combinations:
