Featured Keynote

The Silo Effect

An interview with Gillian Tett, Award-winning Journalist and Editor-at-Large of the Financial Times

Gillian Tett joins us to share insights from The Silo Effect and her upcoming book Anthro-Vision, examining how our tendency to create functional departments – silos – hinders our work. In an age when technology, big data, and financial analysis defines business decision-making, Gillian presents a different idea: businesses can revolutionize their understanding of human behavior by studying consumers and organizations through an anthropological lens. By making the familiar seem unfamiliar and vice versa, she offers a three-dimensional perspective in a world where many executives are plagued by tunnel vision.

Coming Soon

WORKTECH Guide to Workplace Innovation

Alongside the conference, we will be launching the WORKTECH Guide to Workplace Innovation which is intended to steer companies towards some of the most innovative technologies that will play an important part in the future of work and workplace. It includes detailed descriptions of the most significant workplace innovations spanning everything from robots and intelligent mail to biophilia and wellness, providing the knowledge you need to futureproof your workplace.
