NAGCAS Vic/Tas Member Meeting followed by National PD session:
“The Future of Careers Work”
Guest Speaker – Maree Conway
Founding Partner, Centre for Australian Foresight
This workshop is open and free to all NAGCAS members and your colleagues (for a small fee) and will be of interest to professionals at all levels of careers services and across allied services, such as WIL.
Workshop participants will explore change drivers shaping the future of work, the shifting nature of the workplace and organisations and the likely skills workers will need in the future.
Practical work will see participants consider possible futures for career service professionals in this changing context, with a focus on identifying major shifts to work practices and services that they need to pay attention to today.
The workshop uses a foresight framework that explores possible alternative futures and then connects that discussion with action to be taken today. The advantage of this approach is that it takes thinking beyond today’s often unchallenged assumptions and beliefs about how career professionals work. This allows participants to expand perceptions of how roles might change into the future, and action that can be taken today to be futures ready. This fast-paced workshop will produce what is called ‘coffee cup’ scenarios for the future for career professionals – short, ‘what-if’ discussions designed to begin the process of considering the alternatives futures generating both challenges and risks for a professional group.
Workshop Facilitator: Maree Conway
After a successful career as a university manager, Maree Conway established Thinking Futures in 2007, a strategic foresight practice that helps people develop futures ready strategy today. She helps build organisational capacity in environmental scanning, strategic thinking and new planning. Find out more at http:thinkingfutures.net/about/mareeconway, http://about.me/mareeconway.
