The Gatwick Diamond Business and Roffey Park Institute Future of Work Forum

The Future of Work Forum -

Prime your organisation with the tools to manage the future.


We stand on the edge of extreme change and in times of change organisations must adapt and innovate. Gatwick Diamond Business and Roffey Park Institute are joining together to create a series of events looking at the driving technological transformation and social change businesses now face. The rise of the gig economy and AI is now driving the transformation of how and who does the work. What can we learn from the past evolutions of work? What are the opportunities for people in the age of AI and algorithms? What steps can be taken to sustainably future proof your organisation?


At this event you will be able to explore some key themes and develop your skills with practical sessions aimed at helping you build your personal and organisational resilience.


  • Clear Leadership: a collaborative approach to leadership - highly practical, energising session that will develop your ability to build collaborative working relationships within your network and organisation.
  • Facilitating - not just for facilitators - Being able to facilitate groups is a key skill in organisational life. Facilitation can be used across organisations from leading meetings and groups discussion. Helping you to resolve issues or gaining buy-in.
  • Building individual and organisation resilience - Resilience is as relevant now as it has ever been as we juggle the competing demands of constant change at work and home. The session will help you understand resilience and give tools and techniques to manage this in times of change.
  • Confidence and Influence - Helping you develop confidence and influence using performance techniques. This session will help you build your influence and personal impact at work.
