The world of work is changing rapidly. Digitisation, automation and globalisation have already been transforming the workplace for many years. Now the focus is shifting to new technologies that are beginning to penetrate the workplace such as artificial intelligence, robotics and genomics, and which are expected to dominate change for decades to come.

What will the world of work soon look like? What can people do to navigate these changes and take advantage of opportunities to protect their lifestyles and those of their loved ones?

About the speaker

Jaime Casap

Jaime Casap

Jaime Casap is one of the most sought-after speakers on education innovation. He has also become an important advocate for low income and minority students.

Mr. Casap was raised by a single mother on welfare in Hell’s Kitchen New York City and is now a Google Executive.

This journey has given him a unique understanding and appreciation of the power education holds in changing the destiny of a family in just one generation. Mr. Casap has been an invited speaker on these topics at the White House, Washington D.C.

UNE helping people and communities adapt to a rapidly changing world

Since its inception, UNE has been committed to providing genuinely flexible education so people have the freedom to respond to the challenges and opportunities of their day. UNE’s first Vice-Chancellor, Sir Robert Madgwick, laid this foundation when he declared in 1955 that

learning is an individual thing which cannot be directed by any set of rules designed for the average student who, like Leacock’s ‘average man’, does not exist.

This event is free, however tickets are required for entry.
