Year on year, technology continues to develop at lightning speed. Increasingly it is moving ahead of our understanding, meaning companies and the wider workforce must learn more about digitisation and automation; not just to stay competitive, but also to be aware of what the future of work will become. How do you stay ahead of the technology that may one day make your role obsolete, and evolve to make a living in jobs that do not yet exist?

Join Uschi Schreiber, EY's Global Vice Chair for Markets, and Chair of the Global Accounts Committee, as she looks at what the future of work will entail and how we should all adapt in this digital age.
