  • The Future of Work and the Free Radical

    by Althea Erickson, Josh Rubin, Scott Belsky, Benjamin Dyett and Richard Schatzberger

    How we work is changing. But where we work isn’t.

    Over the last ten years a new way of working has emerged, along with some people who live it every day. They’re available 24/7. They network endlessly, and then plug their skills into others’ in surprising combinations. They choose when and how they do what they do, on their terms. They don’t want job security – they want career fluidity. We call them free radicals. And they’re creating the future of work.

    But when they look for a place to do all that, the options are weirdly outdated: office, home, or on the go – say, a café. Those are actually poor choices. Offices mean fixed cost and daily routine. Home is isolated and full of distractions. And cafés get old after the second latté.

    Be transported by this panel of experts into the future of work, as they walk you through their vision of the ideal work experience for free radicals just like you.

    At 12:30pm to 1:30pm, Tuesday 13th March

    In Brazos, Marriott Courtyard Austin Downtown/Convention Center
