The Open World: The future of work and beyond

We live in a world where travel, immigration, and broader mobility changes are emerging, disrupting, and creating opportunities for employees and employers. These opportunities not only affect the business travel community, but also impact societies in new, exciting, and often unanticipated ways. We live in a world of altered expectations, changing behaviours, and fluctuating norms, where new dialogues between human resources professionals, employees, and nation-states are affecting relationships on every level. We live in a world where the future of work has never been more exciting. Yet new obstacles present unique challenges given the way we work has changed forever. Join host Ray Rackham, and thought leaders from across the travel, immigration, and broader mobility industry, as we embark on a journey of discovery; exploring ways in which we can truly inhabit "The Open World".
