The Future of Work is Now!

2018 marks UNLEASH’s fourth year at the ExCel London, a ground-breaking show unlike any other. Offering unparalleled learning and networking opportunities on the Future of Work and Technology, UNLEASH Conference & Expo in 2018 is officially the UK’s largest enterprise show for decision makers, with over 60 nationalities represented in 2017 and more than half of the attendees from the C-Suite. We are the fastest growing people-focused event on the planet and we pride ourselves in organising shows that make a real difference and bring a greater good to the world.

Keynote in London

Alexander Betts

Oxford University

Coinciding with Brexit contingency planning in March 2018 for most UK, European and global organisation’s, instead of simply asking why it happened, or depicting doomsday scenarios of the future, UNLEASH will ask: what opportunities does Brexit offer for business? How will the resulting policy decisions taken by government on mobility and trade, societal changes, and economic adjustments redefine the opportunity structures for business? What needs to be done in terms of innovation, technology and leadership to grasp those opportunities?

Alexander Betts is a WEF Young Global Leader named to the Thinkers50 2017 Radar list of “People Most Likely to Shape the Future”. He will walk us through why Brexit happened and what comes next for enterprise organisations and their employees. Join us to hear a new vision of the positive effects of globalization and the steps leaders should take while stepping into the post-Brexit era.

“The biggest challenge we face in Europe is how to reconcile globalisation with democracy.”

Startup Zone

UNLEASH is host to the world’s leading Startup Competition on the Future of Work and Technology. First staged in October 2011, it has successfully hosted eight editions in total, including four in Amsterdam, two in London and two in Paris. As the show has matured, what started as pro-bono work is now the must-attend show for startups; it’s where they learn how to pitch their product to fans and critics alike including entrepreneurs such as Arianna Huffington and Sir Richard Branson, thinkers and analysts like Josh Bersin, Gary Hamel and Simon Sinek, as well as investors, vendors, media - and perhaps most importantly of all - the organizations they wish to serve.

Venue
