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.
