The Future of Work
Back to the future
The workplace was radically disrupted by the arrival of Covid-19, which in many respects was the unofficial closing ceremony to the industrial era. But as the virus becomes an accepted backdrop to our lives, many employers are considering post-industrial era workplace design.
But there are even more fundamental shifts taking place in respect of the future of work, including the shift from skills to traits,, the emergence of gig work and the relentless onslaught of automation.
Sample subthemes to explore include:
- How do workers remain economically relevant.
- How will the future of work impact industrial era constructs such as weekends, careers and retirement.
- How to configure the workplace for maximum productivity.
- The cultural implications of home working.
- How to tailor the workplace to the needs of the individual and the work to be done
- Repurposing commercial property and districts.

What they are saying…
We wanted someone who would engage our leadership differently. Ade did this brilliantly. Engaging, fast paced and multifaceted. Just what was needed to shake things up a little in the last session of our conference!
We recently held a conference in Milan around “Digital” for our senior partners throughout the MED region (Italy, Spain and Portugal) and Ade joined us by VC as a keynote speaker. Even by VC Ade kept the audience captive with lots of note taking and it also provoked a lot of discussion after the event. One of the most compelling keynote speakers that we have had in the MED region.
Ade understands business and IT opportunities through the lens of executives and how to present this back in a concise manner with clear takeaways.
Ade spoke at an event for around 250 of our UK & Israel Technology team. Ade has a fantastic presentation style, and it was clear in the prep calls that he was able to take our overall theme of the event and link that to his presentation. I would highly recommend Ade as a motivational speaker and thought leader.
Ade McCormack sounds a much-needed clarion call for IT to “grow up” and become a mature business function.
