#100 The future of work & health w/ David Baker & Thomas Olivier (LIVE)
3 days ago
WE MADE HISTORY PEOPLE! That's right! On the 12th June 2018 we made history by recording the 100th episode of The Unconventionalists podcast in front of a live audience at The Studio, in the heart of White City Place, London's newest and hotest media studio.
If you've been asking yourself questions such as, "will robots take our jobs?", "is it the end of retirement" or "am I doing a shit job?", then you're going to LOVE our special guest for the evening.
That's right, our very special guest for this live event was David Baker, who spent 12 years working for the Financial Times, was the launch managing editor of Wired magazine in the UK and is a regular presenter on BBC Radio 4 and the World Service.
A true fan favourite, David's previous episodes are two of the most downloaded episodes of all time on the show and for the first time, at the end of the interview, the audience had an opportunity to ask their questions to David Baker, live.
Additionally, we had the pleasure of having Thomas Olivier, founder of GenSmart come who talked to us about the future of health, data protection and why no one is the same.
GenSmart is a health optimisation platform for longevity that uses sequenced Genomic data, combined with real time behaviour to provide health and performance goals by offering tailored nutrition and lifestyle recommendations to the users. In short, it helps you make smarter decisions about your health based on your genetic makeup.
Thomas is a registered nutrigenomic practitioner and was the first coach in the UK to offer fitness and nutrition plans based on individual DNA make-up. His innovative science-based coaching methods and his book, "Cracking Your Health Code" (available on Amazon) have helped hundreds of people achieve their optimum health.
He recently came in 2nd place at this years' Pioneers500 - Pioneers'18, a pitching competition to redefine human tech frontiers, and was excited to answer your questions on the 12th June, 2018!
Plug in your headphones, kick off your shoes, and enjoy this very special episode.
Can't wait to hear what you think over on social media (@markleruste)!
