BeyondBAU forum: The Future of Productivity

With a number of recent conversations now taking place about the role of AI inside the office beginning to take place, and the concerns about job losses, we would  like to invite you to join us for our July 25th forum in Shanghai on “The Future of Productivity”, where will look at how companies and people will need to adapt to the future working environment and new jobs that will come about as we head not only towards Industry 4.0, but Office 4.0 in China.


While we are still confirming our speakers, who will share their insights into the challenges and opportunities this shift will pose, the questions that we hope to help participants answer are:

  • How will firms need to change their organizational structures and workplace strategies? 
  • What are the training and development programs needed now to prepare people for future roles?
  • How should firms engage with universities differently to attract new talent?
