Women in business event - Manchester

Look busy the robots are coming! 

To celebrate International Women's day we are delighted to be holding our next women in business seminar on Thursday 7 March 2019 with guest speaker Laura Thomson.

Laura will be talking about the impact that robots and Artificial Intelligence (AI) are having on the workforce. With her background in Human Psychology, Laura has run Phenomenal Training since 2008 working with some great brands including Heathrow Airport, The Body Shop, Phase Eight, Unilever, the London School of Economics and Adecco.

As front line roles become increasingly automated it will require a shift in leadership focus to ensure that teams remain switched on, safe and motivated in their work. During these transition years, Laura believes that the robots will only ‘take over’ if humans switch off, so she will explain why we need to diversify our workforce to enable us to stay creative, relevant and profitable.

Laura will explore how we can be more flexible and open to evolving our skills and abilities, as well as rethinking the skills required for the talent of the future. She will discuss how women can exploit their strengths to maximise their potential in this new world of work.
