Aligning with CWN’s Professional Development theme The Future of Work, Professor Mark Skilton and Dr Pinar Ozcan of Warwick Business School will run a session on how employment and job skills will change as more businesses adopt Artificial Intelligence strategies and practices. They will examine how we can future proof our own skills as well as shape the strategy of our organisations.

The sessions will outline the transformation of industries, particularly through technology, and the implications for strategic thinking, drawing on Pinar’s work on mobile payments, the digitalisation of the banking industry and the rise of the sharing economy. Pinar is an award-winning researcher focusing on the impact of technology on business and strategy and the transformation of industries through technology. She was recently selected to the Top 40 Business School Professors under 40 by Poets and Quants. 

Mark has recently published The 4th Industrial Revolution: Responding to the impact of Artificial Intelligence and is the author of Building the Digital Enterprise and Building Digital Ecosystems. His recent article in the Huffington post on Super Human Activity can be found  here.


Warwick Business School is delighted to offer 15% off its world-class MBA programmes to City Women Network members. For more information click here.
