WE ARE ALL BUSINESS UNITS

Session Abstract

The world of work has changed, and the “new rules of the game” are still being written. This impacts young professionals and seniors alike, all over the world. Whether you’re an employee, a freelancer or a start-up entrepreneur, in today’s on-demand economy you must adapt in order to survive and thrive.

In a world where both young and experienced professionals feel that “it’s not how it’s used to be”, that “everything has changed in the world of jobs and careers”, and that “it’s harder than the past”, adding value to your target audiences by putting these issues on the table and offering a new pragmatic state-of-mind is key for any educational and business oriented program. In a world where too many young professional claim that their schools, universities and communities do not prepare them to the new world of work, being the one that added value to them in their journey is essential for participants’ satisfaction, long-term program success and brand development. This talk allows program managers to obtain exactly that.
