Charlie Fink, Forbes columnist and author of, “Remote Collaboration, Virtual Conferences and the Future of Work,” will be talking about “building the metaverse, emphasizing the role of user generated content in VR.” He teaches XR at Chapman University Film School in Orange, California.

Fink is a consultant to some of the leading companies in the XR (AR/VR) world. As a 28-year-old junior executive at Disney, Fink famously came up with the idea for “The Lion King.” In the 1990s, he was Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of VR pioneer, Virtual World Entertainment. Variety calls him “XR’s explainer-in-chief.”

In addition to his work as head of story development for Disney Feature Animation during Disney’s second golden age of animation (1985-1992), Fink was Senior Vice President & Chief Creative Officer of AOL Studios (1995-1999), and President of American Greetings Interactive and Blue Mountain (2000-2004). His past experience includes successful exits from several startups.
