Opening keynote presentation: How technology will shape the organisation of the future | Ross Dawson, leading futurist, entrepreneur, and authority on business strategy 

Tomorrow’s successful organisations will integrate the power of technology and the inspiration of talented people. Understanding the immense unfolding possibilities will allow IT to guide the business forward, designing AI systems that complement unique human capabilities, enabling fluid work structures that match people with tasks in real-time, and embedding learning into every aspect of work. Moving swiftly past the current era of video calls, we will embody ourselves in realistic avatars to collaborate in AR and VR workspaces. In order to create dynamic organisations IT must work today in framing the governance and ethics of these powerful technologies, so we can help the company’s leaders to understand the issues and design tomorrow’s thriving workplaces and organisations.

Panel Discussion: The new reality of hybrid working

The pandemic experience of 2020 has demanded a complete rewrite of the work-from-home playbook, as organisations must ensure their staff can work effectively, securely from anywhere, any device and anytime now and into the future.

Organisations that were prepared to support the exodus to WFH when the need suddenly arose in 2020 were at a distinct competitive advantage, while looking forward those that further refine their hybrid working models in line with the new reality of work will reap further rewards.

But doing so requires the right mindset and the right combination of tools to ensure all systems and devices are seamlessly, securely integrated, with a mobility ecosystem that is flexible and scalable to confidently meet future requirements.
