the session

The future (of work) is already here, just unevenly distributed (Gibson, 2003)

What if 4 days became the new 5? What if a ‘skilled’ workforce required brains and bots? What if 90+ year old employees became the norm? What if organisations became the new universities? What if our ‘workforce’ was no longer a club exclusive to humans?

Join Katrina Symons to explore:

o What ‘is’ the future of work?

o How does it happen?

o So what? Now what? What does this mean for you, today?
