S2E6: Diana Wu David - The Future of work is built on trust


Will the future of work be more decentralized and autonomous? What does that mean for organizations and people? Trust will become the cornerstone of what we do online and offline. That will also require new and different skills to operate.

My interview with Diana focused on her digital transformation experiences and how they impact organizations. We explore how some of the concepts of Decentralized Autonomous Organisations could be applied to traditional work models and their implications. Upskilling in strategic areas and the need for the agency will become even more critical as the world of work evolves.
