Event description
An evening of networking and inspiring talks on The Future of Work.

About this Event

Work matters, it shapes who we are and how we live our lives, informing our identities and who we build relationships with.

Yet the world we work in has changed rapidly over the past decades, from the evolution of technology to the gig economy. What comes next?

Join us for an evening of inspiring talks and networking as we relaunch the RSA network in Glasgow. There will be a series of fast paced talks from a range of speakers on what the future of work looks like to them, from flexible working to basic income.

This event is open to all and is organised in collaboration with Not9to5 who work with individuals and organisations who are aspiring to be less 9-to-5, helping them to unlock the benefits of flexibility. With a focus on collaboration, we bring together people with different knowledge, skills and expertise who are able to find creative and innovative ways of working together.

SPEAKERS

Sophia Grant - Skills Development Scotland What are the skills needed to thrive in this age of exponential change? What's the best way to learn these skills? How do we develop a workforce that responds confidently to ongoing change?

Alastair Lechler - Reboot A microdose of adventure and the power of nature can improve wellbeing, alleviate stress and lift spirits. How can this fit into the future workplace? And why it matters

Cleo Goodman - Citizens Basic Income Network Scotland What would the future look like if everyone had access to a basic income? How would this impact on the jobs we choose and how could it contribute to a fairer Society?

Helen Denny - Not9to5 The future is flexible, making the shift from the 9-to-5 to a workforce that isn't shaped by the hours you do. What would a not9to5 workplace really look like and how can this benefit both the company and the employee?

Zakia Moulaoui, Founder and CEO of Invisible Cities shares her thoughts on a future workplace that is free of labels and stereotypes. How do you create a business that creates opportunities for all and be a force for good?

Adam Lang - Nesta . The future of work is a place where bold ideas turn into reality, lives are changed for the better and innovation can be used as a tool to address some of the biggest challenges facing society.

Jamie Cooke - RSA Scotland . Jamie leads on the development of the RSA’s activity in Scotland, through innovative partnerships, projects and programmes of activity. He works with Fellows to strengthen RSA Scotland’s impact, and to open up new ways to develop opportunities in Scotland.
