#Future of Talks: The Future of Work

At the beginning of 2019, Business for Peace launched an afterwork series with MESH in Oslo. Following our first three events, The Future of Cities, The Future of Climate Leadership, and The Future of Business Leadership, we’re back with our fourth afterwork talk, The Future of Work. Given that the fourth industrial revolution is set to disrupt labour markets worldwide, our timely, expert-led conversation will centre on the impacts a shifting status quo will have on Milllenials and future generations when value-based jobs and flexibility usurp traditional workplace culture.

As new categories of jobs emerge and disappear, how are businesses adapting? With changing socio-economic and demographic factors, what responsibility do companies have to their employees and to society? And just how much will the Millennial mindset change the world?

Join us April 24 to hear talks  from each of our guest speakers: 

  • Kristine Beitland, Director of Corporate Affairs at Microsoft Norway
  • Jannik Woxholth, Associate Partner at McKinsey & Company
  • Christian Pagh, Co-founder and Culture Director of Urgent.Agency. 

Stay for a discussion and Q&A conducted by our moderator, Lisa Cooper, Founder and CEO of Catalysts and Leadership Foundation.


Each speaker will give a brief talk, followed by a Q&A. The bar will be open for mingling afterwards too. If you are not in Oslo, stay tuned to our livestream and engage with out social media channels for live updates from the event.
