It's 99 days until the year 2020. What have you got left to lose?

The Mind Lab and Tech Futures Lab founder Frances Valintine reflects on the technological advancements that have happened since 20 years ago, and how much workplaces have transformed in her experience – ultimately, for the better. She also asks the question, what are you waiting for in business? With only 99 days until the year 2020, now is a time to be looking at the past, while also thinking about the future and what ventures you want to tackle.

​On a recent visit to the Mind Lab, chief executive Frances Valintine told Idealog she believes we've lost some of our number eight wire mojo as a country – and that it's going to take work to get our curriculum up to date and youngsters on the road to tech-oriented careers. For starters, teachers need upskilling, technology needs to be extracted from the 'ICT' pigeonhole and parents need to stop short-selling their daughters.
