The Future of Work

Today I am joined by Cathryn Barnard, the co-founder of Working The Future,  a boutique consulting firm that provides work trend intelligence and advisory services to organisations. And we had a fascinating conversation about The Future of Work.

We discuss:

  • Cat’s background and the creation of Working The Future
  • An overview of the landscape now when it comes to work 
  • What Cat sees as the future of work, and how tech-centered she feels this will be
  • How important the ability to adapt, embrace and build resilience to the technology of the future is
  • We discuss the most important digital skill that is needed for the future of work
  • We chat all about technology’s carbon footprint, ethics and values
  • Cat shares what excites her about the future of work
  • Finally, she shares her key message about the importance of preparing yourself for the future of work, especially in the ever-accelerating digital age

I hope you enjoy this episode!
