The CIPD Festival of Work goes digital. Update: 14 April 2020

The CIPD Festival of work is a chance to immerse yourself in a world of inspiration and discovery – developing you, your people and your business. Even in light of recent events due to Coronavirus, we want to bring that directly to you, so we are now planning to run the festival as a 3-day online event on 10-12 June 2020.

If you have already registered to attend for free or purchased a conference delegate ticket, you have been automatically registered for online attendance and will receive an email with more details on your booking and the virtual festival.

Keep checking back on the website for updates. Sign-up to receive updates on the latest festival developments.

“Because the future doesn’t just happen. We create it.”

Hannah works alongside a unique mix of physicists, mathematicians, computer scientists, architects and geographers to study the patterns in human behaviour – particularly in an urban setting. Her research applies to a wide range of social problems and questions, from shopping and transport to urban crime, riots and terrorism.

What is the practical impact of automation on the world of work, and how we can harmoniously integrate people and technology in the workplace? Join Hannah for her keynote on “Humans versus automation? Upskilling people to succeed in an AI-driven world.”
