About Global Talent Summit

The Global Talent Summit (GTS) is the premier space for multi-disciplinary stakeholders from the private sector, policy, academia/education, and innovation to come together to discuss the trends and solutions for the future of work and education. GTS—on its 6th year now—has convened over 2500 strategists, key opinion leaders, and relevant stakeholders to shape the future of talent through education, innovation, and recruitment.



In 2018, Shalini interacted with prospects and customers from nearly 200 companies on behalf of her clients on the implications and applications of AI in business strategy. Passionate about using technology to create a thriving future for humanity, Shalini is excited to moderate the Lightning Talks session on Jan 18 featuring Kelly Palmer, Jackson Smith, and Danny Laker on how education and lifelong learning are being disrupted and why we should all be thrilled about it!
