A woman at the intersection of tech & creativity, Drue delivers a high-energy keynote experience that lets you discover your inner creative powers & imagination, regardless of your background or the nature of your work. Drue effectively brings together left & right brain with the latest tech trends in a compelling narrative, weaving in actionable insights. One of the very few 4-time cultural speakers at the WEF’s Annual Meeting in Davos, Drue’s sessions have consistently delighted and inspired global audiences. Among the few successful women in contemporary art (a field dominated by men, despite the fact that the majority of art school graduates are women), Drue’s story of building a thriving art practice spanning technology and art, right in the heart of Silicon Valley, is both inspirational and insightful.
“The inimitable Drue Kataoka has a brilliant perspective on the cross-over effect of technology and art, and articulates a unique and compelling understanding on how society can benefit during this tumultuous but exciting dawn of the fourth industrial revolution. On stage in Davos during the World Economic Forum in 2018, I had the pleasure of moderating a live panel discussion in the CBNC studio on Artificial Intelligence with Drue and she not only enthralled the audience with her viewpoints but was also simply a standout speaker. She has a grounding effect on complex topics like Artificial Intelligence and her passion for bettering all communities comes through loud and clear. As an artist and a technologist, Drue is truly a next generation speaker that will connect with your audience and leave them wanting more.”
