Thursday 7 February 2013

6.00pm - 7.00pm

8 John Adam Street, London, WC2N 6EZ

Technologist and writer Ben Hammersley explores the role of the internet and digital technologies in today's workplace.

As social media, mobile devices, constant communication, online sharing, and open collaboration become the norms in the rest of our lives, the traditional workplace is failing to adapt.

How do our traditional workplace models conflict with our new internet-driven expectations of how we might live and work to our full potential, and how might companies and organisations learn to adapt in the 21st century?

Speaker: Ben Hammersley, Prime Minister’s Ambassador to TechCity, contributing editor, Wired UK, innovator in residence, Goldsmiths, University of London and author of '64 Things You Need to Know Now for Then'.

Chair: Matthew Taylor, chief executive, RSA.
