We can now exclusively reveal this year’s packed agenda, which features high-profile speakers and panellists discussing everything from devolution to funding, and the war for talent to the Midlands towns and cities of the future.

Today, we take a look at what it sure to be another fascinating session: The post-pandemic workforce… and the jobs we can’t imagine.

The Covid pandemic has changed the way we work forever. Remote and hybrid working are now the norm – but how has this changed the traditional office? We talk to developers, HR professionals and recruiters to see how the global labour pool is adapting to such rapid change – and look forward to roles that we don’t even know about yet as skillsets change.

Our panel includes:

Rob Groves – Regional Development Director – MEPC 

– Faye Summers – HR Director – UK Flooring Direct

Habiba Khatoon – Office Managing Partner – Robert Walters

The full-day conference will be packed with insight, analysis and original research that will make it an inspiring and informative event that can’t be missed by anyone investing, working or innovating in the Midlands.
