The Future of Work: How Can You Prepare for a Future We Can't Yet Define?

We are undergoing a massive and foundational transformation in the way we work, and this pace of change is accelerating. Emerging technologies and automation are replacing human tasks and jobs, and changing the skills that organizations are looking for in their people. Competition for talent is fierce and growing. This creates huge implications for our society, economy, government, corporations and the individual, at a time when leaders are already grappling with unprecedented disruption.

Many of the roles, skills and job titles of tomorrow are unknown to us today. How can organizations and individuals prepare for a future we can’t yet define? In this talk we look at how the work, workforce and workplace might be shaped over the coming decade, and how to prepare for it.
