The Future of Meaningful Work 

The ability to search for and discover meaning in work has never been more feasible. Yet we still have sky-high employee disengagement – with most of the professional world unhappy in the work they do.

But we’re now able to work in places, ways, and on things that were once the stuff of sci-fi flicks. For many, work is no longer a place you go but rather something you do. The future of work is less about technology than it is about the meaning we will find within it.

New principles for organising ourselves are taking hold. One focus is now on fluidity; the ability to move quickly and with dexterity amidst constant change. This keynote explores the changing nature of work and its reinvention in real-time.

The Best Places to Work

Understanding the tension between playing it safe and experimenting is essential for businesses that want to operate at the frontier. This keynote unravels the changing nature of work culture. We explore the principles and practices that help better the ways individuals and teams work. 

The machine-age mentality of organising continues to frustrate many by stifling creativity and innovation. The best places to work feature leaders with courage. People get nourished —as opposed to drained—from their places of work.

Super Creativity 

Companies shimmy and shuffle to attract the best talent with the aim of advancing their creativity and innovation agendas. But the pioneers have realised that some of their best contributions come from outside of the organisation.

How do you design a resilient system of work that caters to employees, talent networks, partners, and even customers? This Masterclass helps answer this question by understanding how to work like a network, supercharge creativity, optimise for productivity, and adopt mental models for an emergent era.
