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

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. *** SPEAKER LINEUP Rohit Talwar, The Future of Business: Surviving and thriving in a rapidly changing reality.

  • OMN Future of Work Series - Keep Up. #KeepLearning!

    HMS President (1918)

    OMN is back with an awesome FREE event in collaboration with our friends at Squared Online (who are sponsoring the bar!) on March 19th... All aboard the HMS President!! We're kicking off our 2015 programme with the Future of Work series - a number of events taking place over the next few months looking at how technological and cultural change is driving seismic shifts in what it means to be working in the digital industries. The first event in the series is entitled "Keep Up. #KeepLearning!" and focuses on the responsibility that digital professionals have to continuously improve their skills to remain relevant. As per normal, we're inviting a few awesome speakers to the stage who'll give their perspectives on the issues, and advice on how to negotiate the Future of Work. *** SPEAKER LINEUP I. The Future Business Forum (https://twitter.com/Think2025), a B2B Think-Tank to explore and debate what the world of work and business will look like in the future. Glen Kieran, Founder of the Future Business Forum, which in partnership with Cass Business School (http://www.cass.city.ac.uk/), brings together global leaders to debate the challenges organisations will face ten years from now. Some of the critical business issues the think-tank will address include the future of Leadership, Globalization, Generational Demands, Diversity and the Enablement of Technology. II. The Hot Spots Movement (http://www.hotspotsmovement.com/), the UK leader in Future of Work research and consulting Harriet Molyneaux focuses on business and strategic development for Future of Work Lab Jam, a digital interactive platform that helps companies find actionable solutions to the complex global challenges of the contemporary world. Haniah Shaukat, Head of Research for the Future of Work Research Consortium. She directs the research agenda, project manages the delivery of Masterclasses, and conducts bespoke workshops for some of the world’s leading organisations. III. Squared Online (http://www.wearesquared.com/), the digital marketing qualification developed with Google Aiden Carroll, award-winning brand strategist. Aiden’s career has seen him work with numerous brands in shaping and delivering their digital and advertising strategies. His work appears in multiple publications – from The Independent to The San Francisco Chronicle and he talks and trains constantly, mainly in London & Hong Kong, making a habit of saying yes to interesting opportunities. *** Here's a link to a post on Medium that gives more context around the event topic: THE FUTURE OF WORK - The Individual's Responsibility to Keep Up and Keep Learning (https://medium.com/@TetradGus/the-future-of-work-series-a301d0f588c7) It's hard to imagine an industry more affected by the exponential rate of change than marketing. Anticipating mass adoption of new technologies means that we're way ahead of the curve. Keeping up-to-date is vital to your success. Traditionally, the responsibility for training employees fell to employers. The growing importance of keeping up-to-date however, means that what was once a perk is now a key requirement for those wanting progression in their careers. We cannot rely solely on employers to find the best professional development programme for our needs, and as such we should be proactively researching and demanding training and courses to keep up-to-date. Other topics in the series will include: • The importance of taking control of your professional development in a rapidly evolving industry • The importance of personal branding in getting the job you want • Become the CEO of your life - The death of 9 - 5 and the exodus to freelance • How to attract the best employees in a radically evolved recruitment market • Remote working and distributed teams - Is going to the office a thing of the past? • Is Artificial Intelligence coming for your job?! I can't wait to see you all there!! Cheers Gus

    Drum roll please.... Free summer events are back! The next OMN extravaganza is announced for the 29th May aboard HMS President (http://www.hmspresident.com)! Don't you know who I am!? Digital Reputation and Influence How you appear online is becoming more and more important, both professionally and personally. From customers judging your brand on the number of followers you have, to employers checking out your twitter feed; and both potential investors in your startup and romantic partners doing their due diligence via a Google search on your name to site a few examples, your online footprint now has hugely significant effects on your life. Do you know how healthy yours is? It's vital that not only are we aware how we're perceived online, but that we're actively protecting, managing and enhancing our digital selves to increase our personal and professional reputation and influence. Speakers Azeem Azhar (https://twitter.com/azeem)­ - CEO and Founder of PeerIndex (http://peerindex.com/)­ He has just launched the PiQ platform which is a really useful tool that measures influence based on the premise that it's how influential we are within a community that really counts for marketers, and this concept is what Azeem will be focusing on in his talk. Azeem's background is impressive to say the least. He was worked with and invested in startups like Seedcamp, Dopplr, Powerset, New Energy Finance, Zygo, TrueKnowledge, Mondus.com, PlanetOut, esouk and AMI Software. Lincoln Coutts (https://twitter.com/lincoln_coutts) - Digital Consultant and Reputation Specialist Lincoln is a digital consultant to numerous large brands, and a recognised reputation expert who lecturers on the subject at various hallowed establishments including London Business School, Said Business School Oxford, Judge Business School Cambridge and Henley Management College.
