Chair for the Future of Work | Singularity University Co-founder Partner | Charrette Speaker & Writer

Headlines proclaim the rise of the robot and the end of work but the near future is much more about the need for individuals, organisations, communities, and countries to thrive as the pace of change increases exponentially. At the same time, what we think of as an organisation is undergoing a dramatic shift. In a world of exponential change, we need adaptive leadership that doesn’t just react to change. We must learn how to anticipate change by creating organisations that can continually adapt.

Gary A. Bolles is an internationally-recognised expert on the future of work and the future of learning. His focus is on the strategies for helping individuals, organisations, communities, and countries to thrive in the transition to a digital work economy. In this lecture, he will discuss new ways to think about your own work in a time of rapid change, explore new leadership models in a world of never-ending change, and offer strategies for creating a positive future for yourself, for your organisation, for your community, and for our country.
