The Australia-Israel Chamber of Commerce in partnership with Optus and PwC is delighted to invite you and your colleagues to attend the 2018 AICC Business and Education Leaders Lunch on the topic of Future-proofing Australia’s Workforce.
The world of work is changing; how we work, where we work - the very definition of work itself - is undergoing radical transformation.
A new wave of disruption is impacting traditional jobs, industries, education and business models. While this new world of work offers opportunities for greater autonomy and innovation, the impact of technology and the uncertainty around employment pathways also brings with it significant challenges. Are our education, business models and approaches to life-long learning still relevant, or do we need to revisit them?
Join our panel of esteemed education and business leaders as we examine the role, contribution and required evolution of the education and business sectors to ensure we create a workforce that can thrive in the future.
