The future of work in a Net-Zero world with Lynda Gratton
This isn’t your father’s workplace anymore.
Not since the industrial revolution has the world of work undergone a such radical change, at such breakneck speed, as we are seeing today.
Technology, the pandemic and decarbonisation are completely re-writing the rules across every industry – and there will be blood.

Lynda Gratton is Professor of Management Practice in Organisational Behaviour at London Business School, where she teaches the ever-popular ‘Future of Work’ and ‘Strategy in Transforming Companies’ programmes.
Beyond academia, she is a Council chair at the World Economic Forum, founder of Strategy consultancy HSM Advisory, and the author of numerous award-winning books including Redesigning Work and The 100 Year Life.

Season 1 is presented by Chris Caldwell and produced by UNITED RENEWABLES in association with LONDON BUSINESS SCHOOL, ALUMNI ENERGY CLUB.
