Whether it’s learning how to innovate, reflecting on the future of work or even looking at how robotics and artificial intelligence will alter the future of business, those attending MT's Future of Work conference will gaze into a management-focused crystal ball. Here are just a few of the things you can expect to see. 

1. The king of advertising

One of the longest-serving CEOs in the FTSE 100, Sir Martin Sorrell has seen his industry change dramatically since starting WPP back in 1985. Find out what it took to build the world’s biggest marketing company and what drives him to keep going today.

2. Get to grips with big data

Data has the ability to transform the way we do business and today's decision makers have more of it than ever before. But making the most of what big data has to offer isn’t easy. MT will be joined by three experts, including former CERN researcher Professor Michael Feindt, who will explore how reams of information can be converted into commercial success.

3. Sir Howard Davies

As the chairman of RBS, MT columnist Sir Howard Davies has one of the toughest jobs in UK Plc at the moment. Having previously chaired the Financial Services Authority and the controversial Airports Commission, he’s no stranger to a challenge.

4. Learn how to evolve and innovate

The world of business is changing at a rapid and accelerating pace. Staying relevant is no mean feat. MT will be joined by Corinne Vigreux, co-founder of TomTom, whose business had to change dramatically in response to fierce competition from Google and others, to discuss how today’s business leaders can evolve to stay ahead of the game.

5. Discover the future of work

MT will be unveiling a major report into the future of work. Looking at how the workplace has changed in the 50 years since MT first went to press, the report will bring together a wealth of research looking at future working trends – from automation to the built environment – to predict how it will change in the next 50.
