The world of work is changing rapidly. Automation, autonomous machines and artificial intelligence are changing how work itself is formulated.

65% of current primary school children will work in jobs that don’t exist yet, some believe the future of work will reduce the need for work to exist as we need know it now.

All of this impacts the HR profession, those whose job it is to help companies understand, manage, retain and develop their people.

Join us for a panel of leaders from the fields of AI, HR, technology and policy to discuss how these changes will impact HR and the wider world of work.

Our speakers:

Jai Clarke-BinnsJai Clarke-Binns, Head of Human Operations, Satalia

Coming from a curatorial background and quickly realising that a career within the arts was not a viable option for a working class young man from south London, Jai changed track. Taking the plunge and switching to a career in HR. It was not an obvious move but one which suited his passion for preserving the rights of people. Jai has worked within HR for 5 years and calls himself an un-HR professional. When he is not working in HR he is co-founding a social enterprise called People of Creativity.
