The Future of Work: Planning for Tomorrow’s Workforce
Speaker: Bernard Salt AM, Managing Director, The Demographics Group
The way we work in the future will look vastly different to today's landscape. Globally, it's predicted that the workplaces of tomorrow will be much more mobile, agile and connected as technology changes how and where work is done. In fact, this trend is underway with increasing numbers of people working in the ‘gig economy’ where portfolio careers feature, people work more flexibly, and many work virtually or remotely. The workforce and workplace as we know it is dramatically shifting and it's clear we are entering a time of significant change. Join Bernard as he discusses the new growth areas and what opportunities will arise from this shift.
Taking the lead through the technology revolution
Speaker: Alan Fitzgerald, Founder, Practice Connections
Technology is a key driver of change. It improves efficiency, cuts costs, is an essential enabler in the delivery of services, and maximises business profitability. So, what do you need to be aware of in the changing trends of accounting technology? What will the landscape look like in the future?
In this session, Alan will demystify technology – in a buzzword free zone, enabling you to discover how efficiency tools might already be at your disposal without even realising it and why choosing the right tools for your business is so important to growth and sustainability internally and externally.
