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.


The above from the World Economic Forums The Future of Jobs Report 2020. If you have a strategy to do these 3 things well (ie by DESIGN) you will fare better than those who don’t in the months ahead.

> DESIGN a remote work workplace (making the best of a situation that you have been forced into it at short notice is not good enough for the long haul – you have to hit a brief pause and ensure that ALL the boxes are ticked to be successful at remote working – this DOES NOT happen by chance)

> Ensure EVERYONE in your team has the necessary Digital Literacy to be able to work in technology-rich environments

The following skills make up the term Digital Literacy:

* Online Career & Identity Management
* Digital Communicate & Collaboration
* ICT Literacy* Information Literacy
* Media Literacy
* Lifelong Learning
