Sponsored by DailyPay, Lynda Gratton's session will examine thought-provoking questions you may not have asked yourself about the future of work and your career. What will our working lives look like 20 years from now? What should we be preparing for? How will we be working, where will we be working, and who will we be working with? Explore the changes we are all facing and learn about the skills and behaviors you need to learn to remain competitive. Consider the corporate and personal perspectives of a 100-year lifespan on the workforce and how it will impact selection, development, mentoring, and coaching while ushering in the most significant change in human capital ever.

Sponsored by Immedis, Daniel Burrus speaks on how the global pandemic has blinded many to the fact that digital disruption has dramatically accelerated this evolutionary rate of change to a revolutionary level. Every individual and organization has the ability to go beyond getting back to normal and instead reinvent their business models and processes. When the pandemic is over, digital disruption will continue at an even faster pace. Digital disruption does not have to be seen as negative, forcing us to react and respond. We can use new tools and new thinking to become positive disruptors, creating the transformations to build a better future for ourselves, our organizations, and our customers.
