As the robots rise, we are faced with the End of Jobs, but not in the way you might think…so says our next featured guest Jeff Wald, Founder of Work Market and author of The End of Jobs: The Rise of On-Demand Workers and Agile Corporations.

While this may seem more like the opener of the latest doomsday movie or sci-fi blockbuster, we are actually entering the fourth great leap forward in technology. Jeff will share with everyone his predictions on how this will impact the future of work and how we can look back at the last three industrial revolutions to can gain insight on what is to come. We will touch on-

What lessons from the past help us understand the future of work?
With the expectation of a 10-15% job loss how do we plan today for the retraining challenges of tomorrow?
How do we navigate our businesses and ourselves through this transition?

As always- No sales pitches. No boring presentations. Just good conversation
