Guest Speaker: Professor Gordon McConnell, Vice Principal of Commercial and Regional Innovation, Robert Gordon University
A thought-provoking look at the future of innovation, work and careers, this interactive lecture examines the potential changes that will occur over the next twenty years. Will future workers have multiple careers perhaps at the same time? Will 20th century concepts like an eight-hour, five-day working week still exist? Will retirement be a viable option for most people? How will fourth industrial revolution technologies affect what jobs will still exist? And how does the wider world of innovation & entrepreneurial thinking and learning fit into this future? The session will also include an outline of the new innovation and entrepreneurship initiatives being launched by Robert Gordon University (RGU) in 2018.
A question and answer session will follow the presentation.
