Disruption Dialogues: Consumer Product Goods and the Future of Work

The future of work is coming. Some would say that it is already here. Amid the headlines predicting loss of jobs due to automation and other changes brought by artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning, and autonomous systems, it’s clear that the way we work and live will be and is currently transforming. And while our movement into the 4th Industrial Revolution can be uncertain, having a better understanding of the future of work can also better prepare us for this inevitable change.

Join the Drexel Business Solutions Institute for a Disruptive Dialogue which will explore how the future of work will specifically shape and impact the consumer goods industry.

Guests will hear from Five Below’s Executive Vice President and Chief Experience Officer, Judy Werthauser, and will gain insight into how these disruptions are influencing the business of consumer product goods as well as the new skills that will be needed by professionals as we move forward into a more technologically-driven world.
