January marks the second month in a row where leaders have come together to discus major global issues.  First there was the UN’s COP 21 climate conference in Paris in December, this month the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.

The 2016 WEF has just come to a close.  For four days leaders of in the public and private sectors gathered to discuss topics ranging from the Fourth Industrial Revolution, feminism, education, Europe, and climate change.   

The overarching message is that the world is shifting.  Mindsets are shifting. Business is shifting.

The Fourth Industrial Revolution is upon us, many say.  It has been described as a massive technological revolution, combining technologies to alter how we live, work and relate to each other.  With this comes opportunity such as process efficiencies and possibly massive inequality as the technology gap widens. 

How will the entertainment industry position itself in this revolution?  Will it be a leader?  The momentum is there, but across the board mindsets and practices will need to shift.
