By Julian Birkinshaw Professor of Strategy and Entrepreneurship BSc (Durham) MBA PhD (Western Ontario)

As business leaders look ahead to a post-Covid world, they are rethinking many aspects of the organisations they lead. The workplace of the future will be more digitally-enabled and people will work in a hybrid (face-to-face plus virtual) way. Getting the right balance, and adapt to ever-changing circumstances will require much greater agility than before. In this masterclass we shall deep-dive into some of the topics following Professor Birkinshaw’s keynote speech. Professor Julian Birkinshaw will share insights from his current research and consulting work, to provide you with practical advice on how to lead and manage in this new business environment.

Day 2 – 17:25 | A deep dive, interactive discussion about The End of Jobs: what is the future of work

By Jeff Wald HR Tech Enterpreneur, Author The End of Jobs: The Rise of On-Demand Workers and Agile Corporations

As the world enters the Fourth Industrial Revolution, what changes will Robots and AI bring to the workplace? How many jobs will be lost? What are the biggest challenges individuals, companies and society will confront? What lessons can we learn from the first three industrial revolutions? What is the future of work?

Founder of WorkMarket (purchased by ADP), Jeff Wald, walks through his research from his Best-Selling book, “The End of Jobs”. Jeff walks through the history, the data and how companies actually employ new technologies to offer evidence, and example, based approach to work forecasting. During this Masterclass, following Jeff’s keynote – we cover the phases each industrial revolution has gone through and why new technologies often do not have the impact on jobs that many believe.
