We’re thrilled to share that our beloved ‘Future of Work’ interview series is back, and more exciting than ever! We’ve been hard at work dreaming up a new approach to this series and we can’t wait to share it with you.

We’ve got a new round of thought leaders, each with a unique take on a particular aspect of the future of work. From founders of technology companies to space operators offering pioneering takes on the coworking model, each thought leader will share both what they’ve learned so far on their personal and business journey as well as how they see current trends impacting the future of the work. This time around, ‘Future of Work’ will have a new home — we’re migrating the series over onto the Optix blog!

What is the ‘Future of Work’ series?

The ‘Future of Work’ interview series profiles thought leaders who are on a mission to drive the future of work forward. We speak with members of our diverse network of entrepreneurs, journalists, flexible workplace operators and others, then distill their insights into a 5-10 minute read you can enjoy while sipping your cup of coffee and preparing to start your day.

The concept for the ‘Future of Work’ series began with a simple question:

Who knows more about the future of work than the pioneers on the front lines, those entrepreneurs and business leaders who courageously define their business around their personal vision for the future of work?

With over 30 interviews done to date, we’ve had the privilege of interviewing thought leaders such as:

  • Jeremy Neuner & Ryan Coonerty, Co-Founders of NextSpace and Authors of The Rise of the Naked Economy
  • Liz Elam, Founder of Link Coworking and Executive Producer of the Global Coworking Unconference Conference
  • Anne Kreamer, author and contributor to publications such as the HBS and Fast Company
  • Jacob Morgan, keynote speaker and author of The Future of Work: Attract New Talent, Build Better Leaders
  • Jean-Yves Huwart, Founder of the Coworking Europe and Coworking Africa conferences, the Social Workplace Conference, and Global Enterprise
  • And more!
