‘I was delighted to be approached to take the lead, building the Digital Anthropology charity. I am passionate about the changing needs that the future of work presents us all. Having experienced redundancy myself, I am acutely aware of how devastating the experience is and how difficult it can be to pick yourself up and go again.
Automation is a real game changer though, as there are whole sectors at risk. I am looking forward to providing the infrastructure and support needed to ensure people can achieve their career goals and provide for themselves and their families.’
