According to the Future of Jobs report from the World Economic Forum rapid changes and advancements in technology are radically changing the skills organizations need from employees—and that was before the pandemic accelerated the Fourth Industrial Revolution. The jobs of today and tomorrow require less tactical and logistic work (as automation and AI absorb tasks) and more human skills like creativity, emotional intelligence and persuasion.

Pre-pandemic, the World Economic Forum predicted that more than half of workers would require significant re- and upskilling by 2022, and while the global health emergency forced many meeting professionals to increase their proficiency in “tech fluency,” many haven’t considered how other future-ready skills are becoming increasingly critical for their roles and their businesses.

Join MPI’s first Future Skills Summit for a crucial look at the skills hiring managers say are gamechangers across sectors and consider who those skills are key for the meeting strategist jobs of tomorrow. We’ll discuss how human skills are supplanting tactical ones, why “skill instability” is the buzz word for 2022 and how you can prepare by focusing your professional development on the irresistible skills of tomorrow.

Then, we will deep dive into three core skills that experts say will have deliberate and urgent impact on the meeting and event space and share core knowledge and build proficiency so that you can apply next practices to your role, your meetings and your business immediately.
