A big thank you to all who attended the Future of Work Summit at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre. DeakinCo are proud to Diamond Sponsors for this event and we hope you had a chance to experience our panel session, visit our booth and grab yourself a free coffee!

The summit was a great chance to hear from an exciting line-up of industry-leading speakers and panellists. The focus of the summit was on emerging business, future tech and helping people to stay ahead of change in their careers and in their business.

We would like to thank our panel of experts, who delivered a very insightful session on current research in human centred (soft) skills and shared insights on the increase of soft skills intensive jobs, the demand and supply of soft skills and the importance of soft skills in comparison to technical skills.

The panel also discussed the trends emerging in work 4.0, how organisations and individuals can ensure they have the right skills, the emerging technologies or tools to effectively enable people to reskill and how we can build a skills currency to help individuals navigate their career.

Our panel included:

  • Jessica Mizrahi - Associate Director at Deloitte Access Economics
  • Samantha Patel - Director, Capability Development, Capability and Executive Services, NSW Department of Planning and Industry
  • Jeanette Cheah - Co-founder & Chief Strategy Officer of The Hacker Exchange
  • Glenn Campbell - Executive Director & CEO at DeakinCo.

DeakinCo are pleased to be Diamond Sponsors of the Future Work Summit Melbourne and we hope to see you all at the Sydney event on the 15th of October!
