Speaker Event

Foresight: The Future Workforce

The Supper Club’s next Foresight event will explore the rise of flexible and remote working, the impact of AI and automation, what 21st century talent wants from their workspace, and what this means for scaling businesses.

A lot has been said about AI and automation, but what does it mean for SMEs and founder led businesses? Various social, economic and technological factors have driven flexible and remote working but will this really be the model of the future? How will freelancers learn, connect, and develop professionally? What are the leadership and management challenges of a remote workforce? How do generations differ in their needs and expectations? How will office spaces evolve to attract and retain talent? How should we harness technology to reduce cost while maximising talent and enhancing customer relationships?
A panel of speakers led by a key note futurist will debate these issues, with foresight on the following areas:
  • How to prepare for the future workforce and harness AI and automation
  • How employment law and regulation is evolving for the freelance and gig economy
  • How co-working spaces will support flexible working communities and ecosystems for sole traders
  • How learning & development will evolve to support a more mobile workforce
  • How technology can enable more collaborative remote working while improving productivity and profitability
