Economic Developers Alberta (EDA) is pleased to offer its next Marketing Masters Webinar, titled "The Future of Work: Skills We All Need to Stay Relevant."

Staying relevant requires life-long learning to maintain and improve our skills. In this 90-minute interactive webinar, you will learn answers to these questions and more:

  • What will work look like in the future?
  • What skills will we need?
  • Where and how can these skills be learned?
  • How can the skill gap be bridged?
  • What is an “unjob?”  
  • Will self-employed, free-agent contract workers be the workforce of the future?

This discussion will focus on how to adapt our communities and the organizations within them through social innovation to produce a workforce of the future. Relevant skills are needed to continue to add value to our organizations and those they serve. Skills in high demand now and in the future include: 1) learning new technology rapidly; 2) building and maintaining social networks; 3) anticipating, recognizing, and adapting to fast-paced change; 4) remaining mindful and balanced in a chaotic environment; 5) seizing opportunity while overcoming the fear of failure; and 6) creating and leading social innovation.

 

Join us by investing 90 minutes in your future and that of your organization on Wednesday, July 18th at NOON Mountain Standard time.
