Hear from global thought leaders

Book Your Place

WORKTECH24 New York will feature 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 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.

WORKTECH New York speaker highlights include:

A keynote session from Julia Hobsbawm OBE, British entrepreneur, award winning author of six books, writer for Bloomberg, and expert keynote speaker

Flying in from England, Julia will share her thoughts and ideas on some of the key issues affecting how we live and work including: the threat to white collar jobs from generative AI; rising tensions between Gen Z and their elder managers; America’s influence on the world of work, and whether it is waning and rapid changes to city centres as commuter patterns change.

The conference programme also welcomes key speaker Brian Elliott, co-author of How the Future Works and a pivotal thought leader in shaping the future of work.
