Solving the global talent equation, with Mike Johnson

The world of work is transforming at a furious, unprecedented pace. Massive changes and shifts in demographics, employment, technology and economies make predicting tomorrow a tough task. Through interviews with many of the leading observers of the emerging world of work, Mike Johnson gives readers a unique and practical understanding of how the workplace is changing and why we need to prepare for and capitalize on these changes. Packed with in-depth global case studies from Asia to Europe and from Africa to the Americas, he highlights the pressing worldwide ‘people’ issues and puts them into a business-related context. Based upon rigorous research and the unique insights of members of the global think-tank the FutureWork Forum, his presentation is about tomorrow that you need to understand today.


As chairman and founder of the FutureWork Forum, Mike is a leading commentator, consultant and writer on the Future of Work, Talent Management, Corporate Communications and How to Work as an Independent. He is the author of 12 books on business and management issues and a regular presenter on conferences around the globe. He has written several series of world-of-work studies for both The Economist and the Financial Times, as well as over 100 global and Europe-wide studies for international corporations and institutions. He founded Johnson & Associates in 1982 in Brussels and has developed a long-standing reputation as a researcher and reporter on a wide range of organizational issues. Recent books include Winning the People Wars and Talent Magnet, both for the Financial Times and The New Rules of Engagement and The Independent Consultant’s Survival Guide for the CIPD. His latest book, Starting up on Your Own: How to Succeed as an Independent Consultant or Freelance, was published in November 2009 by the Financial Times. In 2010 he created, researched and authored two critically acclaimed international studies on Leadership and Talent Development for the Center of Creative Leadership, AHRMIO and People in Aid and was the author of Employing the NEXT Generation, published by the FutureWork Forum, the Generation Europe Foundation and Manpower
