Talk: AI in Business – Dr. John Flackett


Federation of Small Businesses (FSB)

FSB Event Testimonial for Dr. John Flackett

"John just demystifies the AI ‘noise’ every business owner now finds themselves in! Should we, shouldn’t we – are we missing out? He debunks the narrative, both explaining the pitfalls and championing the opportunities in a simple, yet entertaining way. His vast experience in the field shines through and adds real substance to each and every point he makes. The audience was engaged throughout and he had difficulty getting away at the end amid a flurry of questions! He will be back for sure and everyone needs a John when faced with ‘noise’!" – Tim Brock, Federation of Small Businesses (FSB)
