Conversations of our time

We have always believed that we need to create opportunities for all of us to connect, exchange ideas, learn from each other and work together if our societies are to develop, improve and overcome the challenges they face. 
Conversations of our time is a series of free digital events that will give you the opportunity to learn from and engage with respected and inspiring thought leaders from around the globe. Each event will address a key societal issue and provide you with actionable insights from our expert panel to equip you to meet your societal challenges that have been intensified by Covid-19.  
Through this series you will be able to: 
  • Find out how societies are evolving and changing   
  • Learn about the practical innovations and solutions that leaders have developed to support our communities to respond and recover 
  • Ask questions and be part of a global discussion 
  • Share your ideas, thoughts and innovations with other participants 
  • Contribute to the ongoing conversation via #ConnectedByConversations

15 October - Future of Work  

Our fourth event of the series – the future of work - will explore how Covid-19 and phenomena like automation and the gig economy are changing the nature of work globally. We will also look at what individuals, entrepreneurs and leaders can do to build more inclusive workforces and shape a more sustainable future.Our guest speakers will share perspectives and experiences from around the world in an open discussion. Together they will explore:

  • How has Covid-19 changed the world of work and disproportionately affected women and young people?
  • What other forces are shaping the future of work and how can they be used to encourage equality?
  • What skills do we need to thrive in the 21st century workforce?
