We've got a peak into the future

With the fourth industrial revolution underway, it has impacted work like never before and has fundamentally changed the way workforces are structured and organized. David Shing (aka Shingy) addressed the million-dollar question, how do you create an environment with your employees at the heart of it and at the same time ensure it stands the test of time.

Have you get your copy signed?

Marcus Buckingham, the author of two of the best-selling business books of all time, after his brilliant presentation on day two, headed down to Informa Connect stand to meet his fans and sign the books for them. It was a spectacular experience meeting Marcus face to face and having the book signed with a handshake.
