Event description

Description

We invite you to join us for an evening with Dr. Genevieve Bell, Director of the Autonomy, Agency & Assurance (3A) Institute and Distinguished Professor at the Australian National University, as she discusses the future of work. Presented by the Stanford Australia Association and Westpac, Dr. Bell will be answering questions such as:

  • How do large organisations need to plan for the impact technology will have on their workforce?

  • What will the workplace of the future look like, from a skills, style, location and size perspective?

  • Westpac HR estimates that, in general, 80% of banking jobs will be "somewhat to severely disrupted", however only 50% of existing staff think they will be impacted. - how does management reconcile this dissonance?

We look forward to seeing you on Monday, 30 July for what we are sure will be an informative event. Time will be provided for networking over canapés and drinks.

Date: Monday, 30 July 2018
Time: 5:30pm for a 6:00pm start
Location: 275 Kent Street, Sydney NSW 2000
Cost: $25, includes canapés and drinks
