By 2020, sixty five percent of the workforce will be freelancing. Automation will continue to flip every industry on its head. Exponential organisations will respond to technological change and employees that crave more meaningful roles. Meanwhile, reinvention and adaptivity will be the traits that make you, the creative entrepreneur, thrive.
