The Future of Employment

Upcoming Events

When: Thursday 31 January 2019

We’re going to take a long, positive, critical look at the future of work. We hear so much about robotics, machine learning, artificial intelligence, the lack of jobs, people getting older, having to work forever…. it’s negative, negative, negative. We don’t think it has to be so. We think this is the opportunity of a lifetime. Just maybe we might all work a little less, earn a little more and let the machines do the heavy lifting.

Book early to avoid disappointment.
