“Talking About Tomorrow” Conversations

Jim Ware frequently hosts “open mike” conference calls focused on specific topics related to the changing nature of work, the workforce, and the workforce. He typically launches these one-hour “Talking About Tomorrow” conversations with a brief introduction or an interview with a thought leader, author, or expert practitioner, and then we lead a loosely structured conversation that engages all the participants in a collaborative exchange of ideas and experiences.
