Where will you work in the future? Will you be at the office, at home, or with no fixed abode? How will you work, who with and what for?

Will the city still be snarled up with traffic and the air quality low? Will we work nearer to home or still be tied to our office cubicle?

Will you be self employed, unemployed or still working as a cog in a machine? What legacy will we leave for future generations in terms of the businesses we run, the communities we create and the world around us?

Our values are changing, along with what we want from our lives: agility, connection, creativity, freedom, choice and greater respect for the environments in which we live. Work is a big part of our lives and organisations need to adapt to fit these needs better and be more circumspect around their use of the worlds resources.

With Bristol’s status as ‘Resilient City’ from the Rockefeller Foundation, Connected City and Green Capital 2015, we are ideally poised to harness this energy and build an innovative, sustainable city for everyone.

And the Future of Work conference is the first stepping stone. Our keynote speaker is Jonathan Porritt CBE, green campaigner, author and broadcaster, who will give us something of his vision for the future. 

We have a host of other speakers lined up to give insight to the future, its challenges and opportunities and how future changes can help your business.

A good article with some fine points (though something of a blatant pitch for finding from the NEN). Is there an ecosystem model as an alternative to a centrally funded support service?

What do you think of the PM's news?
The Prime Minister has said he would not serve a third term, if re-elected. Is this a straight answer to a straight question or a problem for his party?After all, he is a leader. Part of leadership is about knowing where you want to go and how to get there; and then what happens once you have.Another part of leadership is communicating and getting feedback on the plan from the people who have to implement it and those whom it affects. Here, maybe...

What is important to you about your work?
The term work/life balance is awful and I would like to wipe it from our vocabulary. It is incorrect on so many levels and has such a negative impact that it simply has to go.Grammatically it is
