Panel discussion: New careers
On day one of the conference, in our People track, we’ll be hosting a panel discussion centred around the idea of new careers.
65% of today’s schoolchildren will eventually be employed in jobs that haven’t even been invented yet, however this is already a reality for many people. The panel, all of whom are in jobs or industries that did not exist a decade ago, will discuss the challenges and opportunities that they face, particularly in light of technologies like automation, robotics and AI. They’ll speak about how they shaped their careers, from what they do, to where and how, sharing how Agility has been key for ensuring their success. We’ll then dig into how we prepare the next generation, what skills they will need and the trends they’re seeing in the current workplace.
The panel, facilitated by Tamsin Anastasi-Pace, Senior Vice President and Global Head of Operational Change at The Economist, will consist of:
- Cheryl Razzell, Global Head of Digital Platforms Operation at HSBC, who is experienced in recruiting in this era of new skills requirements
- cK Edwards-Levene, Founder & Director of TruckStopToday, the UK’s first online library of gourmet food trucks
- Laura-May Coope, Co-Founder at Social Life, the premium social media agency for entertainment brands
- Lisa Barnwell, a Gender Diversity & Inclusion Strategist, and Founder of Bumps & The Boardroom, helping businesses to value working parents equally and challenge the stereotypes and working practices that penalise mothers on their return to work
We can’t wait to hear the insights that are going to come out of this session, so come along and join the discussion.
