Topic: Social Media and the Internet changed the way we work. This is about to happen all over again but in an even more profound way. This time there is not just one but many new technologies at play including blockchain, artificial intelligence(AI) and Virtual and Augmented Reality (AR/VR).

Research is showing that diverse workforces perform better and are more innovative though many organisations haven’t even scratched the surface of making it happen. By 2020 40% of the US Workforce will be Freelancers, contractors or temporary employee’s. In this presentation, we will uncover what skills will be required for Project Managers to thrive in the future of work.
