The Future of Work in Flux

Superpowers for Thriving in Constant Change

with April Rinne

Wednesday 7 July
A World Economic Forum Young Global Leader and ranked one of the “50 Leading Female Futurists” in the world by  Forbes, April Rinne is a change navigator: she helps individuals and organisations rethink and reshape their relationship with change, uncertainty, and a world in flux.

She is a trusted advisor to well-known startups and companies, financial institutions, nonprofits, and think tanks worldwide, including Airbnb, Nike, Intuit, the World Bank, the Inter-American Development Bank, NESTA, Trōv, AnyRoad, and Unsettled, as well as governments ranging from Singapore to South Africa, Canada to Colombia, Italy to India.

April is the author of Flux: 8 Superpowers for Thriving in Constant Change (Berrett-Koehler, on-sale August 24, 2021).

Tackling the complexity of the future of work and its impacts on talent (of all kinds), companies, HR departments, different generations, safety nets, and policy makers, April reveals the trends behind the stats, helping stakeholders across industries prepare for the evolving landscape of work.

How will a “hybrid” future of work evolve in a world in constant flux? How can a Flux Mindset help organizational culture? What other changes are on the horizon that we may not fully see yet?

And it’s not just work – how we  live is also in flux. The boundaries between work and home, private and public, professional and personal are blurring and uncertain. Education, careers, markets, climate – all in flux.

Breaking down complex shifts and interweaving powerful experiences with hard-hitting facts, April shares how we can maximize the benefits of an evolving-and-uncertain future of work while addressing the many unknowns and challenges. Her ultimate goal — and gift — is to help organizations and individuals boost their “fluxiness” and navigate the future of work with fresh insights, courage, and equanimity
