The Future of Work: Digital Footprints, Data Literacy and Informed Citizens, with Andrew Grill

Sunday, 20 October

In this episode of the Smart Community Podcast, I have a brilliant conversation with Technologist, Engineer, Futurist and host of the Practical Futurist Podcast, Andrew Grill. You might remember Andrew Grill from Episode 38, way back when we were called the Smart City Podcast. Since we’re talking about the Future of Work this month, I knew it was the perfect time to have him back on the show. In this episode, Andrew and I discuss the skills to implement now to stay ahead of the curve in the future of work space, and why we should be designing offices for the future flexible workforce. Andrew tells us why he predicts the gig economy trend is going to reach C-suite and Executive level, and the three Ps of the future of work: people, place and purpose. We also cover the importance of the personal brand and how the notion of personal brands and digital footprints have changed over Andrew's career, plus the idea of employees renting their personal brands to employers. We discuss the need to be practising digital etiquette and also building trust digitally and in person. Andrew explains the notion of the digital agent, what privacy will look like in the future and what your data is worth. We finish our chat talking about data literacy, informed citizens and the broken business model that is interruption advertising. As always I hope you enjoy listening to this episode as much as I enjoyed making it.
