By Erik Wernberg-Tougaard for China Experience
5G is on its way. According to most experts, the technology will completely change the everyday life of both businesses and consumers.

How do you lead?
What is the purpose of the office now?
What is the shift needed now to recruit and retain the best talent?
We will hear from organisations at the forefront of new ways of working including: an organisation with 1.5k people in 55 countries that has no offices; and another with 15k front-line staff operating in self-managed teams supported by a back office team of just 50.
