Rachel Sibley is a futurist and marketing/communications strategist who specializes in immersive technologies — primarily Augmented and Virtual Reality.
Rachel believes technology can make humans not only more powerful but also more humane — and that both are required to create true value. In her current role as AR/VR Faculty at Singularity University, she works with entrepreneurs and Fortune 500 companies around the world to create the next generation of computing. Formerly VP Marketing at Leap Motion (the company that allows people to interact in the digital world with their bare hands) Rachel led go-to-market efforts to bring physical interaction to augmented and virtual reality. Before that, she scaled the story of IBM Design across dozens of design studios worldwide — catalyzing culture change and creating a more design-centric ethos at one of the world’s oldest and largest technology companies.
As we move into the cyborg generation, our technology is becoming increasingly intimate, personalized, and kinesthetic. Rachel’s background as an award-winning dancer and choreographer afford her a unique perspective on the possibilities and perils of embodying this complex new digital world. Today, Rachel shares insights gained from her multidisciplinary career at conferences in the US, Europe and the Middle East.
