The advent of new technology is shaking up the workplace as we know it. Digital solutions, cloud systems, innovative thinking and entrepreneurial mindsets are just some of the trending topics surrounding the fourth industrial revolution.
But what does this all mean to you, the working individual? How will it affect you in the workplace? More importantly, what must you do to remain relevant and stay ahead of the changes?
The answers to these burning questions can be found at the upcoming U Future Leaders Summit 2017 (UFLS) on 10 November 2017.
Centred around the theme “The New World of Work”, this year’s conference will take place at the Suntec Singapore Convention & Exhibition Centre with an exciting programme featuring special guest speakers from both the private and public sector.
Here are three reasons worth blocking your calendar for:
1. GAIN VALUABLE PERSPECTIVES
Build on what you already know regarding the landscape of change and pick up secrets from some of the region’s leading business leaders. Rub shoulders with the likes of Microsoft Singapore’s Chief Technology Officer Richard Koh, Lazada Singapore’s CEO Alexis Lanternier and GovTech’s Chief Executive Jacqueline Poh, who will be sharing their thoughts on innovating in the new world of e-commerce and developing critical thinking skills in this digital age.
2. EXPRESS YOUR VIEWS
By posing burning questions to speakers ranging from NTUC Secretary-General Chan Chun Sing to business leaders from Ernst & Young Advisory, Procter & Gamble, MasterCard Singapore and IBM Asia Pacific, attendees may gain specific insights on managing digital transformation and the dichotomy between man and machine.
3.DIVE DEEPER INTO AREAS OF INTEREST
In a first for the U Future Leaders Summit 2017, small-group breakout sessions will be organised for attendees to actively participate and delve deeper into the subjects that matter to them. The Labour Movement’s network of partners will be on hand to facilitate discussions on topics such as innovation, talent, technology transformation, employability and digital leadership.
