Ecosystem Networking Event & Drinks

'Better Business' Innovation Series 

The Innovation of Work

 

Supported by the following committees from BritCham & AmCham:

BUSINESS ANGEL, CHINA, CSR, ENVIRONMENT & ENERGY, SMALL & MEDIUM ENTERPRISE GROUP, INNOVATION & TECHNOLOGY

 

In this new series we will be exploring innovations in the field of better business - doing the right things in the right way. Each event will adopt a different theme, and aims to connect all interested players in the ecosystem - a first for Hong Kong - from start-ups and NGOs through established businesses to members of government, academia and the investment community.

 

In the first event of the series, we will be taking a look at the evolution of work. From co-working spaces and hot desks that are improving the traditional work place model through improving flexible and part-time working, to developments in AI and Robotics that are set to cause a huge shift in manpower needs and what gets done by whom in the future. We will explore what is being done to transform workforce productivity and well-being here in Hong Kong.

 

Who should attend: anyone interested in the innovation of work, social innovation, what is currently going on in Hong Kong and, those interested in helping make Hong Kong an even better place to work, for all parts of our community.
