I recently was a keynote speaker for the online Future Of Work Conference.
The future of work presentation was created to help businesses consider the future of work and the future of their business.
This presentation should act as a guide and inspiration on how to rethink your current approach and lead your company and lean into the future.
As a huge advocate for hybrid work and the
hybrid office (aka an arena), many businesses are requesting their staff to return to the office at least 3 days a week (including Apple & Google), with this in mind, the presentation enables any version of hybrid to work.
The key message of the future of business
Business is going to be culture first.

The Focus WorkGraph
2020 – 2021 The WorkGraph Was Impacted By Covid The Focus WorkGraph is more than just interaction and proximity You are commonly just set up with a buddy & this is your team The workgraph is noisy, it can be misleading and too many loose connections The unfollow button has a huge impact on your business success The great unfollow “action” is rarely spoken of but is an important action that happens frequently Maybe we should help colleagues craft their WorkGraph and actively map this out
