When we think about the way the world is changing, and the challenges we may face in the coming years, we need to look beyond the horizon.


Future Led is an event series created by Liquid to help us to unlock the possibilities for our future by challenging big ideas and their real-world impacts.


In 2024, Something Digital are proud to be joining forces with Liquid to deliver these events.


Over the course of the year we will deep dive into topics  like the evolution of democracy, the capitalism crisis and redesigning our healthcare system, bringing together people with different experiences and insights to amplify solutions for a better future.

EVENT 2 | May 2024

Exploring our best working future: Critical skills to thrive in an AI-driven world

How to harness the power of disruptiona to build the workforce of the future.


In a world fuelled by technology, we often find ourselves caught between the threats and opportunities of its disruption – a threat that becomes very personal when it challenges our notions of work and our ability to earn a living.


Maximising the opportunities created by this disruption, to ensure that all Australians can participate and benefit from a future-looking workforce, will require a deliberate and concerted approach from both industry and government.


Why are individuals, businesses and institutions struggling to build the capabilities needed to thrive in an AI-driven world? What do we need to foster a culture of continuous learning? And how can humans rise to the tech-challenge before us?


This Future-Led conversation will examine the skills and knowledge needed to support our economy and society, to create our best possible future and ensure that no one is left behind.


During this power hour we will cover:


  • What ‘upskilling’ means in an era of accelerate change
  • The importance of fostering a culture of continuous learning and individual empowerment
  • Dispelling the myth that AI is stealing all our jobs
  • How to build human skills which will be critical in leveraging a tech-powered future
  • How organisations are transforming potential threats into opportunities for growth, efficiency, and profit
