However we face the confluence of a range of factors including: demographics shifts, Digital Labour, and new employment models that make this a singular time in the history of work.
Understanding these factors and how they will play-out together is mission critical. In this keynote Steve Clark will share a global perspective that delves beneath the media headlines to look at leading practices and their implications for the workforce of the future.
