About working assumptions

Working Assumptions Julia Hobsbawm

“This is a compelling guide to the future of work” 

John Gapper, Financial Times columnist 

All Speakery Summit Delegates will receive a copy of Julia's brand new book- Working Assumptions. A rapid response to the seismic changes affecting working life, Working Assumptions by award-winning writer and popular podcaster Julia Hobsbawm covers the past, present and future of work. Following Hobsbawm’s landmark  2022 book The Nowhere Office, which predicted the rise in hybrid working, Working Assumptions is a clear-eyed view of what Julia identifies as ‘The Amazing Age’ – a new era replete with challenge and opportunity for all working people experiencing a pace of technological and cultural change not seen in over a century.

Expedition Leaders, Summit Guides and Storytelling Sherpas

The Summit is an interactive learning experience, so we’re ditching the term Speakers for something more dynamic and helpful. Instead, delegates will learn from Expedition Leaders, Summit Guides and Storytelling Sherpas. Here are just a few of the experts who will be taking to the Bavarian Alps to help Summit delegates traverse the translation landscape and the intricate world of public speaking.
