Thinking and skilling digitally – staying relevant in Industry 4.0
March 18 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm AEDT
Those of us working in operations will have heard of the fourth industrial revolution – Industry 4.0 – but do we really understand what this means for us, how it will impact every role involved in operations moving forward and what skills we need to build to stay future fit? As John Lilly, High Tech Specialist, Entrepreneur & Teacher said: “Our only security is our ability to change” and now more than ever is the time to adapt, re or upskill to keep your competitive edge.
Business & Technical Acumen is one of our key Learning Priorities and a critical focus area for career development. To remain relevant we must continually adapt to the growing trend towards automation and data exchange in technologies. If you work in operations and want to better understand the implications of the evolving digital landscape and exciting skillset growth opportunities in this space, then this is a really important event for you!
Who better to partner on this topic than our Gold member SAGE? Join experts Laura Mabikafola, General Manager, Skills Lab (SAGE Group’s Training Business), and Agronomist, Innovator and Thought Leader Fiona Turner, who will provide fascinating insights into industrial automation and control, instrumentation and big data analytics. In addition to this technical introduction, Laura and Fiona will also discuss how such rapid change in these areas requires us to keep honing our skills, and future career opportunities that will become available in our industries.
