Workplace Trends Conference 2018 London – The value it adds for me

Workplace Trends London 2018 is three months away and I’m already looking forward to it! Last year was great to meet with more workplace professionals, network with existing clients and candidates, along with learning more about the industry from some great speakers. All of the topics for this year are going to be great to learn about, with Artificial Intelligence as one area in which i’m particularly interested in. Hearing about how AI will impact on how the workplace is designed, and also what it could mean for the future of the Workplace industry, along with how AI is helping to change other industries.

For most that know me, you will know i’m professional and love the workplace world, but also enjoy a bit of humour along the way. Last year I was met with several cheeky comments (mostly from those I knew) as to the surprise of a ‘recruiter’ attending an industry workplace event! I welcome such conversations and attend because I enjoy it and it adds value to my work. I find it a real benefit attending Workplace events throughout the year, so I can understand more about the industry, and specifically the thoughts on future ways of working and thinking for Workplace Consultants.

Having this industry knowledge from guest speakers and professionals allows me to further understand the sector and by knowing the latest trends and topics, I can present the right Workplace professionals to the right companies. I like to work closely with my clients providing the right advice and introductions to the available talent in the industry.

The event is a great place to meet new professionals, who may just know me as the ‘workplace recruiter’ on LinkedIn, and to catch up with some of my current clients and candidates that will also be attending.

To anyone in the workplace industry, I would highly recommend attending Workplace Trends 2018 – it may just give you an idea of what the industry could look like in the next 5-10 years, meet your industry peers, oh and if you are lucky you may bump into me!
