Fewer students are graduating with the skills needed for the jobs AI and robotics are either replacing or re-creating. Many companies and entire countries are now confronted with significant talent shortages. According to a PwC report in 2015, 73% of CEOs surveyed see skills shortages as a key business threat. Given the essential role of human capital in the coming expansion, a global war for talent is beginning and will intensify.
The Global Talent Summit (GTS) is the premier space for multi-disciplinary stakeholders from the private sector, policy, academia/education, and innovation to come together to discuss the trends and solutions for the future of work and education, and for closing the global skills gap. GTS – on its 6th year – now has convened over 2500 strategists, key opinion leaders, and relevant stakeholders to shape the future of talent through education, innovation, and recruitment.
