About the Future Skills Forum

An invite-only forum to learn, connect, and exchange

The Future Skills Forum brings together a respected assembly of 500 industry leaders, policymakers, entrepreneurs and technologists to create connections, discuss and debate on the strategies to build future-proof workforces at country and organisation level. 

As technology transforms all industries, the role of people has never been more important. Preparing citizens and employees to a world of new skills is now an imperative, and the Forum will support discussions to share experience, approaches and best practices from around the world.

Roundtable Discussions

In the afternoon, the Skills Future Forum will transition into insightful roundtable discussions featuring senior leaders from finance and technology industries as well as the public sectors.

These discussions centre around the profound impact of technology on future skills.
80+ Senior leaders with observants to provide a platform for sharing key insights and experiences on highly impactful topics affecting the changing landscape of skills.

The goal is to collect the best practices from both the public and private sectors in navigating the swiftly evolving finance landscape, especially as new technologies are reshaping every facet of the traditional financial system. Roundtables serve as an important catalyst to bring together leading individuals with their own unique experience, to identify the important trends of the industry and develop initiatives and programmes to support the growth of a future-proof workforce.

Thought Leadership Reports

From the roundtable discussions, CFTE will create invaluable reports, serving as a bridge that extends the reach and impact of these forums beyond their immediate audience.  They encapsulate and disseminate the wealth of insights, fostering broader industry engagement and providing actionable intelligence for stakeholders.

We would like these reports to underscore the thought leadership of participants and organisers, documenting the progressive ideas and collaborative efforts that drive the sector forward.
