Details

The second event in OMN London's Future of Work series is going to be huge!

Following the roaring success of the last event in March, we're very excited about this one for a number of reasons...

Not only do we have globally-renowned Futurist Rohit Talwar as our keynote speaker!

Not only is he joined by some of the world's foremost Future of Work thinkers!

Not only are we partnering with Upwork, the world's foremost freelance talent marketplace who will be speaking... And generously sponsoring the bar!

But, it's also in June, and for anyone that's been to a Summer OMN event before, you'll doubtless agree that there is absolutely no better place to be on sunny Thursday evening in London than aboard HMS President, drink in hand, chatting with the best and brightest of London's digital scene.

Rohit Talwar speaks at events around the world. He also advises businesses and governments on the topic of how we'll be living and working in an augmented, intelligent hybrid reality. His conclusions as to what our work lives will be like are truly fascinating.

He is launching his new book "The Future of Business" at the event and will be joined by a number of the contributors, who are among the most influential Future of Work thinkers in the world (seriously, it's amazing!), on the night to talk. We'll be announcing the speakers soon.

It's the Future of Work ALL-STARS Edition!

On the night, the speakers will provide powerful insights on how rapid advances in science, technology and social expectations will bring major disruption to life and business over the next two decades. They will explore how the human brain and body will be enhanced, how AI could transform literally every aspect of business and work, and how the boundaries between real and virtual will all but disappear.
