Event description

The global pandemic has catalysed a “great reset” of work. Innovative organisations around the world are experimenting with new ways that people can work and collaborate together. New Zealand has a tremendous opportunity to capitalise on these seismic changes in where, when, and how people work.

Gary A. Bolles is the author of “The Next Rules of Work”.  He serves as the Chair for the Future of Work for the global thinktank Singularity University and consults with organisations around the world, including Google, Intel, and the United Nations. In this high-energy talk, Bolles will chart the dramatic changes coming to the world of work, and offer a range of strategies for ways that New Zealand organisations can innovate and thrive.
