Event Details

What is the debate about?

As a bystander looking in, our always-on society is often hailed as being a step forward for civilisation as a whole. But the more we look into the topic, the more we’re seeing that not everyone entirely agrees.


The Always-On Con is the topic that will be driving a series of debates that will take a closer look at what an always-on society means – weighing the positive and negative consequences of being constantly connected and the effect it’s having on the workforce at large. 


The first debate will take place on October 10th in London and will draw upon recent studies conducted by both the Workforce Institute EMEA and Imperial College London, with Julia Hobsbawm OBE, Anastasia Dedyukhina and Bruce Daisley on the debate panel to lend their industry expertise to the discussion.
