THE ROBOTS ARE COMING – WHAT ARE THE KEY SKILLS AND JOBS FOR THE NEXT GENERATION?

with Mr. Peter Cosgrove

This talk will highlight the rapid change in the future of work with many jobs becoming obsolete with the rise of machines and artificial intelligence.  Many of the jobs of the past may not exist in the future so we need to prepare the next generation for these changes.  The talk will explore the key jobs and skill-sets of the future and what your daughter should be focusing on to ensure they are ready for the future of work.
