What Comes Next? Future of Work

The world of work has transformed rapidly over the past few decades. From the introduction of mobile phones and the personal computer to the advent of coworking the way we work has completely changed. But what comes next? Join us at this event to explore the Future of Work.

We’ll investigate what the world of work might look like in years to come from a wide variety of angles. What do we even mean by work? What will drive the change: politics, economics, technology? What role will ethical business play? Where will people work?
