Episode notes

Technology is no longer a thing that happens as a segment of a business, or the sole domain of the IT Department. Core functions of how a business runs are technology-based and rely on people, processes and systems being interlinked.

Listen to one of the industry’s tech titans explain how the impact of technology acceleration is changing organisations and their employees, alongside academic commentary on how technologies like AI and blockchain can be used to enable – or weaken – successful connection in workplaces and beyond.
