Fri, 12th January, 2018 from 9:30 AM, in St Albans
Mckinsey Global Institute’s report ‘Jobs Lost, Jobs Gained, Workforce Transition in a Time of Automation’, December 2017 challenges us
“in a world where the role and meaning of work is vastly different how can we prepare today? “
What is our response to the changing world of work and the huge acceleration in technological change? Do we embrace it, use it, innovate or do we fear it, refuse to use it, ignore it? Are we ready for a world where predictions suggest that by 2030 up to 375 million workers will change occupation and another 400 – 800 million could be displaced by automation? Or a world where there will be plenty of work but most people won’t be skilled enough to do it?
We will all need creative visions and stories for how our lives are organised and valued in the #newworldofwork where our roles and meanings of work shift. This workshop will give you space and time to consider your vision and your story for your future. Topics we may cover: What are we predicting? What are we frightened of? What are we resisting? What are we embracing and already have? What’s needed from us? What can we do?
We might even test out a piece of tech, which if it works great and if it fails, teaches us a key ‘agile’ skill how to fail fast.
We do hope you will be able to join us and bring your curiosity and inspiration.
Amanda Derrick will be bringing the catalyst for learning and Jeremy will be moderating. We really look forward to seeing you there.
