As technology transforms the world of work, the question we ask is, how can business education help shape the future to meet the needs of employers by the year 2030?
Henley Careers has held two conferences looking into the challenges and opportunities that face us in the future world of work. Ultimately we want to create a community of like-minded people who are curious and committed to working together at the forefront of technological change. We aim to lead the conversation on both human and digital skills needed in the new World of Work.
Below are some of the topics we discussed at both of the conferences. Please do get involved in the conversation, there's a lot to talk about!
Information about the next conference in September 2019 will be announced soon.
