Paul Miller, Founder and CEO of the Digital Workplace Group, and author of “The Digital Workplace: How Technology is Liberating Work”, was recently invited to speak to Microsoft staff at the company’s HQ about the new digital landscape of work and how it is transforming our lives.
Microsoft Research has now made a video recording and transcript of the event available to view and download on their website.
The recording features Paul being interviewed by Ephraim Freed, Community Manager at the Intranet Benchmarking Forum (IBF). Topics covered in this fascinating and wide-ranging session include Paul’s definition of the emerging digital workplace and its place in the historical context of work, as well as its effect on non-deskbound workers on the “mobile frontline”.
Paul also talks about some of the other themes from his recent book, including the various opportunities and challenges to both organizations and individuals that arise from this seismic change, as well as the wider implications for society.
Previous prestigious speakers also invited to address Microsoft staff include leading sociologist Sherry Turkle, seminal cyber novelist William Gibson and philosopher Steve Pinker.
Paul continues to be in-demand as a speaker on themes relating to the future of workplace technology. He will be speaking at the Center for CIO Leadership on 5 December.
