PLATF9RM Presents: What Is The Future Of Work For Generation Z?

It’s said that almost two-thirds of children in primary schools today will end up in a job that doesn’t exist yet—an era of young people dubbed Generation Z. These young people will have to be quick to adapt to the ever-elusive, ever-changing world that we call the future! Gen Z will demonstrate higher aptitude for learning and have a need for flexibility and autonomy. Much like the technology they’ve grown up with they'll also be expected to seamlessly streamline processes.

But what does that future workplace look like? Will interstellar engineering skills be A Thing? Most importantly: how is today’s society preparing this generation of young people for what these non-existent jobs will look like?

As part of the Brighton Digital Festival, PLATF9RM invite you to an evening discovering the future workplace with an impressive panel featuring, Brandon Relph, Daisy Cresswell, Lola Ray and Declan Cassidy.

DrivenWoman Lifeworking™ Workshop – A Women’s Network in Brighton

DrivenWoman is a supportive network for women who want to lead a bigger life.

Imagine if you actually achieved what you always wanted. Launched that business, wrote that novel, made that career change, lived a bigger life – how amazing would that be?

DrivenWoman is a members’ network that helps women define their own success, become accountable to their goals and make dreams happen. We get together once a month to create positive habits and put plans into action, one small step at a time.

This is where networking meets life coaching, but this time your coaches are other women sharing their journey. The really powerful thing about going through the shared experience of LifeWorking is that it impacts directly on your positivity and belief in your own potential. Instead of the sense of isolation you may have felt before, you will be inspired by the stories of other participants and will soon notice that the obstacles you thought were unique to you are universal to most women.

Bite-sized Learning with Brighton Chamber: How to blog like a pro

“Content is King” is a phrase that’s chucked around the industry like a game of hacky sack, but it’s not strictly true. Content isn’t king, the consumer is king. Content is more like the court jester trying to get, and retain, their attention.

But the kingdom is overrun with jesters, so how do you make your content matter?

Sophie Turton, Director of The Joyful Web. Sophie has a solid background in journalism and content marketing and has written for some of the UKs biggest publications, including The Guardian and The Huffington Post. The Joyful Web works with purpose-led businesses to tell stories that resonate with audiences and build strong digital communities.

During this workshop, you’ll explore:

  • What makes good content
  • How to structure blogs so they resonate
  • How to create strong call to actions
  • The importance of internal linking
  • How to measure results
  • How to use the results to create even better content
  • Want to create content that engages, educates and inspires your audiences?

Lovie Awards x Good Rebels: Take My Word For It

On Friday 20 July, Good Rebels is delighted to welcome the Lovie Awards to Brighton, to present this year's Lovie Talk.

Take my word for it

How the rise of voice technology makes the world faster, more convenient, and more accessible; but is silently distorting our perception of reality.

The talk will focus on the rise and evolution of voice technology, the challenges for brands when designing voice experiences (for example, how do you create a brand's identity when you don't have images, logos, etc.) and case studies from a range of brands and organisations.

Tickets are free but strictly limited, register quickly to secure your place.

Tea, coffee and water is provided.
