ABOUT US

So you want to know more about us? Great, then we’ll give it to you in a nutshell.

We are the FOW Community

The Future… a place we are all heading to at mach-10 speed without a seatbelt. Preparing for the future requires a willingness to change and an understanding of what that means and how to do it.

Work… a word that doesn't mean the same thing now as it did just a few years ago. So why are we still using business practices that smell of old moth balls? The “business as usual” model is shifting and leaders need to be ready to tackle the challenge of innovating and embracing a new model of work to create long term business value.

Community… the keyword to success in the modern business world. No one is an island (we’re more like archipelagos). The network that we rely on to get work done is strong because we make it strong. By contributing to the global community, we contribute to our own success.

Our mission… We want to support the global network of business leaders by providing the resources our members need to become educated about the future of work. In short, we know that the more people who are prepared to succeed in the future of work and the more successful companies are and the better that future will be.
