Liverpool Responds: The Future for people in work

Listen to our expert panellists discuss the future of the workplace and what it might mean for businesses and people from the City Region.

Online event - Wednesday 7th October 2020, 10:30 - 11.30

We’ve heard that work will fundamentally change as a result of Covid-19. As we hear more about the “new normal” doing good business means shaping the agenda not waiting to see what happens. In this session we look at the future of the workplace and what it might mean for businesses, people, and the wider fabric of our City and City Region. The world is unpredictable so rather than trying to guess what might happen we’re going to explore what we’ve learned during the pandemic, what it might mean for the world of work, and how work could work better.

Chaired by Professor Dinah Birch CBE, Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Cultural Engagement, the latest in the University’s Liverpool Responds series, welcomes a diverse panel of industry experts.

Dinah is joined by Loyd Grossman CBE, author, broadcaster and cultural campaigner; Joanna Biggs, author of All Day Long about modern work, and editor at the London Review of Books; and Asif Hamid MBE, CEO and founder of The Contact Company, Chair of the Liverpool Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) and Honorary President of the Wirral Chamber of Commerce.

This event is free to attend with the opportunity to ask the panel questions following the main discussion.

Liverpool Responds is the University of Liverpool’s fortnightly online event series considering different aspects of the pandemic, its response and the sectors affected by it. Please see the full programme here.
