Description

THE FUTURE OF WORK AND YOUR FATE.

OR, WILL ROBOTS TAKE OVER THE WORLD?

Join a crowd of like-minded individuals for this fascinating event where we will pick the brains of an innovation genius, generating robust and frank discussions about the future of technology and how it will impact your company and your job.

Gain exclusive insights from Charlie Day, part of the brains trust behind Australia 2030: Prosperity through Innovation, the strategy to drive Australia to become a leading innovation nation by 2030. Day will discuss such topics as the gig economy, educating the future generation on STEM subjects and how we can address the current limitations of Australia’s corporate innovation systems. Afterwards there will be an audience-guided Q&A and drinks with peers to complement the thought-provoking conversation that will no doubt follow.

Be there or be a slave to the robots.

Gain exclusive insights from Australia's innovation expert about the ways the future of work will impact your job and your company.
