The UK economy faces a perfect storm of disruption: technological changes are accelerating while challenges posed by Brexit and wage pressures are set to increase.
From financial services and construction, to retail and the food sector, the nature of work is changing. And over the next few years, more and more sectors are going to be affected.
London needs to adapt – but how?
We will engage in the debate about how government, schools and businesses should be preparing themselves and the workforce for dramatic change. We’ll explore whether increasing automation might actually improve the quality of jobs, what those jobs might look like, and how Londoners can take advantage of the opportunities disruption provides.
