Mark Purdy (Chief Economist at Accenture) - The Future of Jobs
I came across Mark’s work when looking at the list of the speakers at the Warwick Economics Summit 2017. I enjoyed his keynote at the event and invited him to be on my podcast. We talk about what countries can do to reap the benefits of AI, its impact on productivity and what skills will be in demand in the future.
