Title: The Future of Work - What Will My Job Look Like?

Our very first meet up will be happening on 30 Nov! This is an opportunity to meet people who are interested in the topic of career development and the future of work.

Byte Academy Singapore has kindly sponsored their venue to make this event possible. In conjunction with Byte Academy's Friends of Byte monthly series, our first meetup features futurist Charlie Ang. We will discuss the future of work and jobs, especially in the age where new business models and technologies has disrupted the workplace.

The future of careers will be dramatically different from what we know today. How then can we future-proof our careers and navigate successfully in a world of uncertainties and unknowns ahead? How can we find a lasting career that will be truly meaningful and satisfying?

See you there!
