As the influence of artificially intelligent and automated technology spreads, what effect is digitalisation having on our social and professional lives?

Our renowned speaker, one of Europe’s leading futurists, will invite delegates to ponder the profound ethical, political and commercial questions posed by the advances of the fourth industrial age.

Closing Keynote Address: ENTERPRISE, INNOVATION AND DIVERSITY MANAGING POTENTIAL IN THE WORKFORCE

How can facility managers, in collaboration with professional associations including IFMA and RICS, build a fairer profession? Research has repeatedly drawn a link between workplace diversity and innovation, suggesting that inclusivity is a commercial, as well as ethical, priority. Drawing on examples from a range of industries, this session will challenge delegates to evaluate their own approaches to recruitment, staff retention and talent management.
