HOW TO KEEP MILLENNIALS ENGAGED

The make-up of the global workforce is undergoing a major shift. According to Harvard Business Review, in four years Millennials will account for nearly half the employees in the world. In some companies, they already constitute a majority.

This members meeting will take a deeper look at the millennial generation – who they are, what they want from work and how their attitudes and beliefs are shaping our world. We will explore how best to engage with millennials through social and digital communications; and internally within your workplace.

Contributors to the session include Director of Social Media Strategy for Barclays, Nigel Sheldon; and Zoe Cunningham, managing director of Softwire Technology.

Zoe accompanied the UK Prime Minister, David Cameron, on a trade delegation to China and has been named as ‘Businesswoman of the Future’ by the Independent Newspaper.

More contributors to the Millennials meeting will be announced shortly.

THE FUTURE OF BITCOIN

FT to speak at Future of Bitcoin meeting

Investment Correspondent for The Financial Times, David Oakley will be participating in ‘The Future of Bitcoin’ session to discuss the emergence of Bitcoin with members.

David will be joined by a range of Bitcoin and digital currency specialists.

Growing numbers of merchants are now accepting Bitcoin including Reddit, Dell, Microsoft, Zappos, Zynga, Expedia, eBay, Virgin, PayPal, and WholeFoods.

New money without banks?

Bitcoin is an innovative payment network and a new kind of money. Bitcoin uses peer-to-peer technology to operate with no central authority or banks; managing transactions and the issuing of bitcoins is carried out collectively by the network.

Digital currencies – like Bitcoin – are revolutionary for third world countries – where people don’t have bank accounts or access to the banking industry, but they can have access to a Bitcoin wallet.

Also, some Silicon Valley visionaries predict that Apple Pay could help teach a new generation how to live without cash and make the transition to Bitcoin natural and easy.

This is an opportunity to learn more about Bitcoin and digital currencies and, as the digital economy grows, how they could disrupt and/or transform your industry and company.
