Dell Technologies Chief Digital Officer, Margarete McGrath will host a discussion on the future of work with guest speaker, Mona Bitar, who is an EY Partner and leading EY’s client response to Covid 19 in the UK.
In recent weeks, we have seen technology enable communities to connect, engage and share not just workplace exchanges but family moments using collaborative technologies. Recent weeks have also highlighted the need for technology to become almost a utility that everyone has equal access to. This conversation will explore some of the emerging workplace trends and how workplaces are being reset for a new reality. Imagining a new paradigm where workplace and home become closer, where technology is used to augment working and living in a new way. Join us for what will be an engaging discussion on the workplace reality, one that is unlikely to revert to old patterns but presents an opportunity to reshape workplaces as we know them.
