Big Tent 2016


An exciting and challenging morning of inspiring plenary talks, open conversations and workshops

From 08:00 until 13:00

At Methodist Central Hall, Westminster

Storey's Gate, Westminster, London SW1H 9NH


CIPD/Jericho Chambers /


Big Tent


Through a mix of panel discussions, videos and small table-based conversations we will explore whether the future of work really should, can and will be human and if so, how to support, develop and harness that power into a successful, productive and fulfilled workforce.

The gathering will combine inspiring plenary talks, open conversations and workshops, through which the community will rotate to contribute and challenge existing ideas. The conversations will be hosted by those currently running the work streams and other aspects of the Future of Work is Human project. It will conclude with a “what can we learn/what can we apply?” commitment session to help build a shared manifesto.

This event is a chance for our community to come together to share the amazingly rich and deep conversations to date, test ideas and propose new ones.

An exhibition on the Future of Work, curated by pupils (aged 4-16) at School 21 in Stratford, London E15 will run within the Big Tent. This is a project-based learning exercise that considers the future through the eyes of those who will inherit it.

In similar vein, the findings of the WorkLab Work Experience Group will also be shared — and much of the conversation to date dramatised via the audio and film currently being captured on the Future of Work is Human web platform.

    Love to attend. Count me in, Robert. Sound fabulous. We need to chat about what is happening in Surrey/Hampshire around Innovation 2025 and our embryonic attempt to create a value exchange ecosystem with the support of a far sighted LEP. Keep well, P
