FutureForce Summit 2007 to focus on collaboration in a changing workforce

Second Annual Conference Event Set for October 30, 2007

Thank you for attending Summit 2007! We're currently in the process of uploading information from the Summit to the website. Here's what we have so far:

FutureForce Halton, an Employment Ontario program led by the Halton Industry Education Council (HIEC), is proud to announce the first details of the second annual FutureForce Summit. After the stand-out success of last year's Summit, which focused on workforce shortages and changing demographics in our workplaces, this year's Summit will centre around the idea of collaboration in a changing workforce. With fast-growing new technologies and a monumental demographic shift taking hold in our businesses, new strategies have emerged for ensuring long-term economic and community success. This year's event will focus on the exchanging of these proven strategies and allow for the sharing of new ideas that can work to strengthen the already strong links between industry, education and government in our community.

The 2007 Summit will be anchored by dual keynote speakers. Don Tapscott is a Toronto-based speaker, author and consultant, specializing in business strategies and organizational transformation. He recently co-authored, alongside Anthony Williams, a book titled Wikinomics: How Mass Collaboration Changes Everything. You can learn more about Don and his book at his website. Linda Duxbury is one of Canada's leading workplace health researchers. She has written hundreds of papers, journals, and books, and is the co-author of a series of influential Health Canada reports about work-life balance in Canada.

In addition to these two great speakers, the Summit will feature a selection of workshops focused on the key workforce issues identified by the Halton business community.
