Don't miss our Thursday General Session a Town Hall Discussion: The Role of Testing in Stimulating and/or Anticipating Workforce Needs. Come ready to challenge the speakers on how testing can and should evolve to better match employers with employees, and shift from stimulating demand to anticipating it.
“As technology increasingly takes over knowledge-based work, the cognitive skills that are central to today’s education systems will remain important; but behavioural and non-cognitive skills necessary for collaboration, innovation, and problem solving become essential as well”
– Klaus Schwab, World Economic Forum
Work is being transformed by the interplay of technology, geo-politics, demography, and socio-economic forces. Entire industries and sectors are becoming transformed and while some are in the ascendant, others must adapt quickly to seize new opportunities least they be threatened by redundancy. Yet despite these environmental changes and a shift in focus towards skills assessment, labour market gaps exist and organisations are unable to find the talent they need.
In this audience-lead session, Bob Athwal (GSM London), Nicky Garcea (CAPP), and Bryan Mathers (Visual Thinkery) will discuss the role the testing industry can and should play in enabling organisations to find the talent they need to thrive in the future. Come ready to challenge the speakers around how testing can and should evolve to better match employers with employees, and shift from stimulating demand to anticipating it.
Presenters: Bob Athwal, GSM London; Nicky Garcea, CAPP; and Bryan Mathers, Visual Thinkery
