Future of Work 2019

Are you ready for the future of work? New technologies are steering radical transformation and the jobs of tomorrow will therefore look vastly different from those that are known today. We invite you to a Future of Work Master Class, helping you to prepare for tomorrow’s challenges.

The world is changing. The jobs are changing. Educations are changing. The workforce is changing, and the role of leadership is changing. These conditions will force businesses to change and adapt to new markets in the ever-changing era of business and competition.

The emerging technologies, such as automation, robotics and AI are proving beneficial; however, they also raise difficult and ethical questions for businesses to consider. In a future where technology increasingly becomes an integrated part of work, leadership and education – what will be the implications for people, organizations and societies?
