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 three 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 and social change. We aim to lead the conversation on both human and digital skills needed in the new World of Work.
