Business Chicks Presents
Will robots really take over? Will we be replaced by computers with no sense of humour and a poor gif game? Will money cease to exist and we’re paid in cryptocurrency? Thinking of a career change but unsure which industry to move into?
Woah slow down, we don’t know the answers to these questions, but we know something that may help. Our latest Career Files: Jobs of the Future will help you navigate where the job market has been and where it’s going, to help you make savvy decisions for tomorrow and beyond- thank goodness for that!
We’ve searched high and low to find three women who don’t just have fancy job titles but some serious street cred too. We’ll be joined by Optus’ Digital AI Director, Kate Brodie, ANZ’s Senior Marketer and In-House Futurist, Kate Young, and CLS Scientist, Shailee Patel- I mean c’mon, these ladies know their stuff!
