Managing AI in the Future Workplace – where is AI most useful in work applications, who will be responsible for managing it, and how will AI transform executive careers? Chat GPT has only been available for a few months yet it has grown like no previous app, amidst rumours that AI could replace swathes of jobs, especially higher level technology, creative and professional roles that seemed safe from automation. How can we work with AI, in which areas is it most useful, and what effect will it have on our careers in the future?


The panel of experts to discuss how they already manage AI in their workplace are:
