Why data will become irrelevant in the future world of work

With the growing social injustice in the world,  many people feel helpless to affect change and alter the global course that’s been charted. But we all play a role. Every second of every day. And much of that role starts in the workplace where long standing systems of power, politics, and structures inhibit the very change we want to see in the world. The biggest culprit? Data. Allison takes us on a journey to explore the history of the workplace, where we’ve been, and where we are inevitably going. And that new destination involves minimal data (as opposed to Big Data) and a lot more purpose and heart. Interested in a sneak peak? Read her blog here: http://www.veldhoencompany.com/en/media/data-irrelevant-future-world-work/

Why ABW leverages Leadership Development 
Strong leadership is a no brainer in succeeding in the competitive world of work today. Yet, even after all the leadership development programs put in place, why do employee engagement surveys continue to point at poor leadership? Gijs will share his provocative views on how the evolving workplace will challenge leaders to design a new way of working where all employees are free to work anywhere, anyhow, and anytime. Our future generations of workers will demand that we re-define leadership and how leading with more flexibility and empowerment (and less power and politics) will create a better world of work.

Cashflow - from king to underdog.

In this session we will go through how cashflow can make a company great or make it go out of business, but more than that how we can use innovation to actually allow us as businesses to re-think the way business works, how we can use different products to fix tough situations and focus on what we want.

The session will also focus on how businesses can see financial institutions as help rather than something to be scared of.

How will physical retail thrive in the post search era?

Shopping Malls and Retailers have big problems. It is more difficult for shoppers to find physical stores selling brands and products compared to finding the same products in online stores. This is because data about physical retail stores has not been organised effectively and indexed by search engines. 

If finding a physical store is harder than an online retailer, shoppers buy online instead of visiting a store. Booodl calls this Shopper Visit Leakage. Bricks and Mortar retailers are also not well placed to benefit from growing consumer trend of Digital Assistants. 
The physical retail ecosystem (and traditional revenue models) will be further damaged if they do not improve their discoverability online. Digital Assistants such as Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, Microsoft Cortana and Apple Siri are becoming the key battleground for consumers attention. The mission piece of all these platforms is improving the efficiency of shopping within physical retail.

Learn why our founders believe saving the physical retail ecosystem is a problem worth solving. There will be a Q&A with staff and customers at Booodl HQ in their open plan tech hub in Surry Hills. You will get to try Amazon Alexa for yourself.

d.school - Design Thinking

Design thinking is a powerful problem solving tool helping you approach challenges in a new way. In 60 minutes you will be taken through a full design cycle by participating in The Gift-Giving Project. This is a fast-paced project where participants pair up to interview each other, identify real needs, and develop a solution to “redesign the gift-giving experience” for their partner. NO PREVIOUS DESIGN EXPERIENCE REQUIRED. We’ll provide all the information you need to be successful. Through this experience we hope you will take away some of the basic principles of Design Thinking and start to adapt them into your personal and professional routines.
