Keynote talks and topics


  • The Future of Work: Who will be in the workplace and the trends new generations will bring with them that we need to adapt to, how we will be working and the effect of automation on the types of jobs we'll be doing, where and the shift from permanent 9-5 at an office to hot-desking at a co-sharing space, the blurring of the work and home environment, when we will be working and the impact of the 'always on' workforce on mental health 

  • Top 5 Mistakes: Mistakes are the key to our successes. It is a cliche told time after time. But there is a reason why cliches are cliches. It is because they hold truths that are universally felt and understood
