Event description

Description

10 years ago, there were no social networks.
20 years ago, there was no internet.
30 years ago, there were no computers in offices.
Imagine how things will look in another 30 years.

As the world is changing, work is changing too. Strict corporate hierarchies have given way to flat structures and virtual teams. 9 to 5 is now 24/7. Local is now global. With no chronological or geographical boundaries, work never stops.

The world of work is changing and will soon be unrecognisable from what it is today. On one hand we are told that robots will take our jobs, and yet on the other we are told that we will not be able to retire until we reach our late 70’s or even 80’s. How can that be compatible? From macro trends of urbanisation, demography and life expectancy to the ever increasing capability of technology, our businesses are facing competition from seemingly everywhere and all at once. And for employees….. in 5 years there will be 5 billion people with smart phones accessing Wikipedia and every book ever written; how will you compete when there will always be someone cheaper, faster and maybe better than you?

Businesses and work as we know it will change significantly over the next 5 years, so what will happen and how can we future proof our businesses and our careers?

By connecting the dots in a meaningful way, this seminar will consider these facts and more. And for every point made we will show where the future has already started to take shape, after all, ‘the future is already here…..’
