On this occasion, our guest speaker M. John Evans has very kindly accepted to come and talk to us about The future of work
John is currently an academic visitor at St Peter’s College Oxford and a visiting fellow at the University of Greenwich. He was until July 2017 General Secretary of the Trade Union Advisory Committee – (TUAC) to the OECD. From 2012 Evans combined his TUAC post with that of Chief Economist of the International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC). He was a member of the leadership of the Labour20 (L20) as part of the G20 outreach process as well as the international labour movement’s economic policy advocacy at the International Financial Institutions in Washington and the World Trade Organisation. He was in 2016 and 2017 a member of the Independent Commission on the Future of Work, chaired by the Deputy Leader of the British Labour Party, Tom Watson.
John is thus particularly well-placed to talk about this burning issue. Undoubtedly will he address topics such as globalisation, technological innovations, Artificial Intelligence, and their significant impact on our work. Which opportunities and which challenges will the future of work offer? what roles should schools or government play? What ethical and social questions does the development of new technologies raise? So many issues which will be debated on 8TH November.
As always you will enjoy an exquisite Angelina breakfast in a cheerful and stimulating atmosphere.
