Work is Not a Place: Our Lives and Our Organizations in the Post-Jobs Economy
The world is changing and so is the very notion of ‘work’. For years we have been told that our aging workforce will mean a shortage of workers in many industries. More recently, the narrative has changed to one where robots do everyone’s work and there are not enough jobs to go around. Which view of the future is correct? More important, how will our lives and organizations change as we navigate the changing realities?
In this much-requested presentation based on her book of the same title, Linda Nazareth casts an economist’s eye to the way the big trends are changing our realities. From looking at the way global change, demographics, and technology are coming together to reshape the work world through to examining the challenges for individuals, businesses, and governments, she sketches a world that is both unsettling and exciting. How can you best prepare for a world where work is not a place? Start with Linda’s presentation and feel like you can meet the future head-on.

The Side Hustle Economy: Imagining It, Managing It and Living It
The days of one job and one company are rapidly fading. These days, workers can not only expect to hold a multitude of jobs, they can perhaps expect to hold them simultaneously.

In this engaging presentation, Linda Nazareth looks at the perfect storm of circumstances that are creating the Side Hustle Economy. Who will be the winners and losers? How should governments and companies prepare to manage their side of it? What do individuals need to do to make the most of it?
