Summary

In a world driven by data, how do we focus on - and celebrate - what makes us truly human? From walking though a forest to falling in love, from birthing our children to grieving a loved one, the unique moments that form, inform and transform who we are have one thing in common.

No AI could ever actually experience them, no matter how advanced it may become.

Our lives are all too short – and when we look back, we remember the moments, not the metrics.

So how do we inspire people to lead lives filled with meaningful moments that shine bright in the memory?

How can our offering contribute to a life well lived?
