Our society is rapidly changing, undergoing a profound transformation, driven by advances in science and technology, artificial intelligence and digital disruption, and also exacerbated by changes in government policies leading to sovereign risk, developments in the global economy, changes in work patterns and wealth distribution, security (cyber and otherwise), and climate.
Society is rapidly transforming into a different world. Nothing is to seemingly be untouched by these transformations and none more so than big business that is largely responsible for driving much of Australia’s (and the world’s) economies and, of course, employment.
Grant will talk about the biggest issues for the community and the most significant piece of long term policy work the BCA is doing the future of work. The concern many people express today is no longer whether they will have a meaningful job but whether there will be jobs for their children. This concern is driven by the rapid evolution in technology and how it is impacting on jobs. Come and join us on 13 June and hear the remarkable engineer and business leader, Grant King, speak to the topic.
