  • The Next Big Thing

    by Matt Barrie

    The Internet is delivering its next tectonic shift upon society - disruption of the global labor markets. There are 7 billion people in the world, but only 2 billion people on the Internet. The other 5 billion are connecting now, at double and triple digit rates. Remarkably, they live today on around $8 a day or less. The first thing they are looking to do when they connect is raise their standard of living- by finding a job online. This is the vanguard of an economic revolution that is sweeping emerging economies and the developing world. Find out from Matt Barrie, CEO of the world's largest outsourcing marketplace, what this means for society, business and how you live your personal life. Discover how a new entrepreneurial class is arising on both sides of the world as both developing and developed world small business owners serendipitously work together, and find out how YOU can transform YOUR business into a virtual multinational corporation on a shoe string budget!

    At 3:30pm to 4:30pm, Monday 12th March
