Raising Young Talent for the New World of Work
A 60-minute talk for parents and teachers of children in high school
The future is no longer predictable which makes parents panic – especially high school parents. Approximately 60% of the jobs our children will do have not yet been invented and many of the jobs and skills in the world of work today are on their way to becoming obsolete or will morph and change into something entirely different in the not too distant future.
Spending too much time trying to smooth the path for our children has become counter-productive and we should rather prepare our children for a fast-changing path that will be filled with both challenges and opportunities that are beyond our imagination.
In this presentation, Nikki Bush, well-known speaker and co-author of the best-selling book Future-proof Your Child (Penguin) and the recent ebook Talent Re:defined, will inspire and challenge parents to bring up children of substance, who can adapt and adopt as the world of work changes. She will raise the topic of the Fourth Industrial Revolution in relation to our children and why it matters, discussing the major trends that are shaping the world of work and giving rise to new industries where jobs will be found.
Today’s learners need to become the driver of their own career development because there are no free rides anymore in a world of few guarantees. They need to become their own source of internal security as they forge their unique paths into the future.
“There is no future in any job. The future lies in the person who holds the job.”
George W. Crane
