Committee for Melbourne and Fisher Leadership hosted a hybrid virtual breakfast event on Reimagining the Future of Talent.

The perfect storm of economic disruption, remote working en masse, technology advancements and skills gaps are bringing new talent models to the table. How are you rethinking your workforce to stay ahead of skills requirements?

Guest Speakers:

  • Michelle Loader, Managing Director | Fisher Leadership
  • Glenn Campbell, Executive Director and CEO | DeakinCo
  • Annette Kimmitt, Non Executive Director
  • Dr Sean Gallagher, Director Centre for the New Workforce | Swinburne University of Technology
  • Martine Letts, CEO | Committee for Melbourne

As Coronavirus swept the world, it took with it a workforce design stuck in the rigidity of the industrial age. Today, the hallmarks left in its wake are outcomes over hours, cognitive diversity over culture fit and adaptability over knowledgeability. Welcome to today’s new operating environment!

Who’s missing from your leadership table? Do you have your buy/borrow/build talent strategies to keep up with the skills you need moving forward?

Research tells us that 59% of candidates say they want to own their reskilling.

We also know that 56% of employers worry about the skills of their workforce becoming outdated within five years.

How can Committee for Melbourne members harness the shift in the workforce to leverage innovation, scalability and reskilling? Learn how your organisation can move to an agile capability model as we gather a panel from across education, industry and government to share latest insights.
