What’s your next career going to be?


I had the great pleasure of delivering a presentation last week at Griffith University, on the topic of “The Future of Work”. It was attended by students as well as businesses and uni personnel. A very interesting topic – and one that sparked much discussion. Many thanks to CCIQ and Griffith Uni for having me.

For those of you interested in a change of career – here are some of the new jobs set to appear (I love them):

TELESURGEON – a surgeon who operates remotely
GARBAGE REDESIGNER – someone who finds better uses for recycled garbage
SIMPLICITY EXPERT  – in this crazy world we all need someone to help us lead a simpler life
CROWD FUNDING EXPERT – yep, they will be the new finance brokers
REWILDER – these experts will help people reconnect with nature
GAMIFICATION DESIGNER – gamification is huge and applicable across every industry
END OF LIFE DESIGNER – says it all
HEALTHCARE NAVIGATOR – someone to help us make sense of the mountain of conflicting health advice
DISRUPTION ADVISOR – these folks will help a business disrupt their competition
INDUSTRY DISMANTLERS – as industries change and disappear these experts will help the dismantling process
BIG DATA DOCTOR – people who will help manage huge amounts of data
PRODUCTIVITY COUNSELLORS – yep, we will all want one of these
ROBOTIC COUNSELLING – there will be a lot more robots around (think Terminator) and we will need counsellors to help us cope
OPPORTUNITY SPOTTERS – these advisors will be engaged to spot opportunities for small business and big business alike
IDEA BROKERS – they will take ideas to the market, aiming to get the best price for the idea founder
PET COMPANIONS – who wants to leave their four legged friend alone?
DRONE PILOTS – yep, we all love drones.
SENIOR EVERYTHING  – we are all getting older, so many opportunities..
NANO MEDICS – and as things get smaller, nano, like drones, will be hot.
