At Inspirefest 2017, preparing for the future of work was a very hot topic.

We’ve talked a lot about the future of work and what it will mean for us as humans when technology and AI become more advanced.

Luckily, a lot of thought leaders seem to think that we will be OK, provided we know how to reskill and focus on the abilities that make us uniquely human.

During a panel discussion with Dropbox’s Adrienne Gormley, Facebook’s Colin Graham and Sodexo’s Thomas Jelley, reskilling appeared to be the key component to surviving the future of work.

“I think it’s evolution rather than [having] a whole load of people wandering the streets with nothing to do,” said Graham.
