Live in Melbourne and curious about the future of work?

The Australian workforce is changing more rapidly than ever before, and it's important that we start preparing now. With the technology we have now, individuals will be empowered to take on more independent tasks and be able to decide where and how they want to work. The traditional career path of working up through the ranks is becoming less prevalent, but more and more people focusing on innovation.

Leaders at the forefront of the industry agree it’s time to think beyond what we’ve known as the ‘future of work’. Change is happening so rapidly that we need to harness it – today.

Presented by RMIT University, the Future Thinkers Forum is your opportunity to be a part of this career-shaping conversation.

Join them at The Capitol where thought leaders will discuss rapid-fire topics, from revolutionary technologies – including wearable devices that detect loneliness – to inspirational stories of change that illuminate opportunities in every challenge we face.
