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.

Back in February of 2016 I shared this video, which had just been released by the WEF, with a group of executives at a business breakfast, during a presentation I did on the future of work. The clip highlighted a future where workplaces allowed for flexible working and also supported remote working.

More than 4 years later many of the executives that were at that event have been forced to get their heads around the concepts that were highlighted in this clip.

Today I believe, as I did four years ago, that it’s smart business to do the work to evolve your workplace into one where your team can work as effectively in-person as they can remotely. Those that did do this work prior to this crisis have not experienced any disruption to their business continuity.

This is the future of work, how ready are you?
