Mar 9, 2024

10:00am – 11:00am CT

Amidst the 'Great Betrayal’, and the rise of the freelance worker, we explore 'Life After Big Tech’. We’ll delve into the shift from full-time employment to freelancing, the impact on worker trust, and the changing labor market. We'll dive into why an increasing number of highly-skilled tech workers are going independent, how they're embracing AI to increase their productivity and earnings, and what to expect in the years ahead, with the majority of the workforce projected to go freelance by 2030. Join us as we discuss how companies and workers alike can succeed amidst all this uncertainty.
