  1. What skills will be most sought after?
  2. What can we do now to differentiate our future selves?
  3. How can we achieve success in today's constantly changing workplace environment?'

The discussion will be facilitated by David Coltman, Executive Director, Pathways and Vocational Education at Swinburne.
