Future of Work 2018

Future of Work: People, Performance, Innovation combines industry leaders with the brightest academic minds to bring you a conference program brimming with expertise and experience.

We’ll give you knowledge that works on topics that matter. We’ll present big ideas, but bring them back down to earth to equip you with the tools you’ll need to work them into your day-to-day life. If it’s on our program, it’s something that matters now or that will soon be affecting your work, your business, or your life.

Our 2018 program has more presentations, more panel discussions, more hands-on workshops, and new debates. We know you like to talk to fellow delegates about what they’re doing, their challenges and their solutions, so we’ll ensure there are plenty of opportunities to swap stories, ideas and numbers with your peers.

If you’re a thinker, maker and doer dedicated to a better future, join us for curated content like no other.
