Tune in to the live broadcast of Talent for Cities on Wednesday, February 1, 2017, and hear from smart city leaders, futurists and education disruptors address the “elephant in the room” question: Who will build, prepare, and continuously innovate these digital cities for the future? 

Previous guests have included: Sam Liccardo, Mayor of San Jose, California; Lenny Mendonca, director emeritus and founder of McKinsey & Company U.S. state and local public sector practice; and Jason Kelly Johnson, founding partner of Future Cities Lab

Even with massive investments in new technology, infrastructure, and urban development, without a robust pipeline of digitally ready talent, how will cities realize their full potential? The Talent for Cities show will explore how cities, businesses and education can partner, collaborate and innovate to accelerate the path to a Smart-City Workforce. How can we disrupt the current model to help future digital cities to innovate, grow, and thrive?
