Deloitte’s Chris Richardson will dispel the myths about robots, work, casual jobs, skills & more. Chris will explain that the future isn’t scary, but it is misunderstood. Deloitte’s ground-breaking research tells us how human skills are hugely under supplied and as a result – skills, rather than occupations or qualifications – are the job currency of the future. These trends in job markets aren’t alarming, they’re liberating, as the boring, repetitive work will be done by robots, leaving the more challenging and interesting work for humans. Deloitte takes a different look at the future of work and explores how what we do at work is changing, as are the skills we need to succeed. This presents an opportunity for business and government to make better choices about our work, our workers, and our workplaces to pave the path to prosperity for all Australians.
