I got to go on a one-day workshop with renowned lecturers who work with some of today's most exciting areas of technology: artificial intelligence, quantum computers, blockkedjeteknik, 3d printers, synthetic biology and virtual reality.
Here are some examples, which I had with me:
Quantum computers, which have been hot for a wider public since Time Magazine put it on the cover of two years ago, is expected to have a breakthrough in the financial sector.
There are huge amounts of data and adequate risk-prone capital to invest in an unlimited global computing power, predicted Andrew Fursman, president and founder of 1Qbit, also referring to Google's breakthrough just before Christmas, when sökjätten told of their quantum computer working 100 million times faster than a standard pC.
The high-profile block chain technology behind crypto currencies like Bitcoin, is expected to have a major impact far beyond the financial sector.
We all need to be inspired and broaden our horizons sometimes.
The boss may even choose to hang on.
