Steven Worrall, Managing Director, Microsoft Australia

Event overview

The workforce is changing globally, both in the types of jobs people are required to do, as well as the skills that are required for the new jobs that are emerging. As a result, what will the workforce look like in the future, how should business prepare, how do we reskill people in industries impacted by technological change and how do we ensure we are building Australia’s future-ready workforce?
As the head of one of the largest technology companies in Australia, Steven Worrall has rare insight into the impact of the fourth industrial revolution on industries and communities all around the globe. He will discuss how technologies such as artificial intelligence are changing the nature of work, and why we need to take action now to collaborate and help our workforce be skilled for the jobs of the future.
