We were invited by the Chamber of Commerce to attend a business event in Calais. We had a presentation from the Mayor of Calais who appreciates the bond between Kent and Calais and the Mayor didn’t see Brexit as a means to break those all important ties, which was encouraging.
We looked at where the future business will be and what will those candidates of the future look like. One of the messages referred to the Tides of Change:
Technology; Institutional; Demographics; Environments/Ethical; Social Values
These are key aspects that future employers will need to look at. An aging population was certainly a talking point, especially with medical advances we will start to live to the ripe old age of 120!
The final message was Challenge the Impossible.
