Hear from global thought leaders

WORKTECH22 Los Angeles will feature over 15 speakers, including leading international thinkers from industry and academia. Our speakers represent some of the world’s biggest brands and best universities and research departments, alongside radical visionaries from new innovative organisations.

Through inter-disciplinary speakers and learning experience, we focus on bringing cutting edge ideas and inspiration to the workplace community to enhance creativity and move thinking forward. Instead of focusing on peer to peer innovation through imitation, we aim to curate a unique programme, bringing together experts in the fields of people, place and technology and relevant adjacencies to reflect on the future of work and workplace.
