Future of Work Speakers

We are delighted to present you with a selection of highly respected future of work speakers. Our speakers couple deep knowledge of AI, futurism, and corporate culture with fresh perspectives and visionary thinking. Together, they are reshaping our ideas about the workplaces and professions of the future.

The world of work is changing. In our fast-paced, 24/7 society, customers are no longer content with traditional business hours. Flexible working practices are replacing the old 9-5 model; businesses large and small are embracing outsourcing, and the popularity of freelancing is growing year on year. The rise of the internet has made it possible to run a corporation from a kitchen table, empowering a new breed of solopreneurs to compete with established multinationals. Businesses are becoming leaner than ever – and this trend looks set to continue, as the widespread adoption of AI and automation in the workplace makes a range of established careers obsolete.

Are these changes positive or negative? Are we moving forward into a more liberal era, or backward into an age of mass unemployment? What does the future hold for business owners, freelancers, and employees? Our future of work speakers may not be psychics – but they can share unique, thoughtful, and timely insights that will leave your audience spellbound!
