I'm the founder of FutureWork IQ where I spend my time assisting businesses to design digital workplaces or “offices in the cloud.” These environments enable companies to allow flexible and remote working for their teams. I also teach the digital literacy, fluency, communication and collaboration skills needed to work in these modern technology-rich workplaces.

Imagine you had access to this Tesla roadster to take you from point A to B but you didn’t know how to operate it. All you could do is open the door.

You didn’t know how to set the security pin
You didn’t know about the valet mode
You didn’t know about the charge settings
You didn’t know about driving in performance mode
You didn’t know how to use Autopilot
You have no idea what the instrument panel is telling you
You had no idea about the HomeLink Transmitter


Of what use will this be to you?

Today many businesses have the most sophisticated workplace technology available to them that can (and should) dramatically change the way they work, allowing for example the ability to enable effective and efficient anywhere working, but are unable to operate it.

I have literally heard of companies that are just using the video feature in their Enterprise Social Network application and nothing else! They have a powerful “roadster” in their “garage” but they don’t know how to operate it.

Learn to use the tools you have access to, to take you further than you could ever imagine. This is what digital literacy and fluency is all about.
