EP04: Dave Govender - What happens when the romance of working from home fades

In this final episode, we look into the future with Dave Govender, CEO of Bravo Group, and explore what happens as the romanticism of Working From Home (WFH) fades. We explore how we can integrate home back into the office and create a hybrid of the two. What do we need to make people comfortable at home or in the office and how the essence of local manufacturing has taken off from COVID and brought people back to supporting their roots.

EP03: Maryana Iskander - There is no single rule

In Episode 3 we speak to Maryana Iskander, CEO of Harambee Youth Employment Accelerator. Maryana speaks to us about how the future of work is transforming. Work is more than a physical space. It is a place where ideas are sparked, people connect and align to one another. She highlights for us one of the things many people take for granted and one of those is the high costs of data in a remote world. The challenges our youth face trying to find work and to work in a remote world.

Being a top international leader, it is inspiring to listen to her take on giving people the recognition they deserve. She speaks about the basic need to be recognised and belong. As she tells us human resilience has no limits!

Have a listen to her take on how to bring work closer to home.

Mark Barnes, a seasoned leader in the public and private sector, explores with us as to why there isn’t one answer as to whether there should or shouldn’t be an office. He explains to us why the "sum of screens" and our technical devices is not the same as the "sum of individuals".
