The Future of Work GBF Conference 2017

This event will debate the challenges for recruitment and training for businesses in the age of digitalisation and automation.

In association with EEF, the German British Chamber of Industry and Commerce, Liverpool LEP and LCR 4.0, this event looks at the challenges for recruitment and training for businesses in the age of digitalisation and automation.

How will jobs change in the future and how can we communicate this to the education sector? The conference focuses on manufacturing, engineering and logistics. Keynote speeches and panel discussions will exchange understanding of the future employment needs of industrial companies.

Our CEO, Terry Scuoler CBE, will be speaking on 'The effect of digital on jobs in manufacturing'. Other speakers include Lord Mendelson (Chairman of Global Counsel and President of Policy Network), Dr Peter Ammon (German Ambassador to the UK), and Juergen Maier (CEO of Seimens UK), plus many more.

Following the conference, there will be a drinks reception and dinner which requires a separate ticket.
