Event details

Whether you’re the boss, the deputy or on your way up, the way we’re working in a post-pandemic world is forever changed and it’s important to make your work work for you.

Isabel Berwick, author of The Future-Proof Career and host of the award-winning Financial Times ‘Working It’ podcast, will reveal how to do work differently. Offering expert analysis and ahead-of-the-curve workplace trends, she will look at the big ideas shaping the world of work today and the old habits we need to lose.

Covering topics as wide-ranging as the four-day working week, bridging the workplace generation gap, making sure your company walks its diversity talk, quiet quitting and the great resignation, achieving workplace equality and even micro-dosing for creativity, Isabel spreads the word about understanding modern workplaces so we can all have happier, more productive lives.

Join Isabel as she helps you to navigate the world of work now, tells you how it might change in future – and how you can prepare. Get ahead of uncertainty and take control of your career.
