London, UK – 6 February 2018 – UNLEASH, the world’s fastest growing community focused on the Future of Work and the interface between people and technology has announced that Jonas Kjellberg, tech investor and co-creator of Skype, will be the opening keynote speaker at UNLEASH Conference & Expo, 20-21 March 2018 at the ExCeL London. As one of the masterminds behind an organisation that has changed the world of online communications and given birth to the technology currently disrupting entire job functions – Kjellberg has an unconventional style for dismantling and overhauling industries as we know them.

In addition, Ardi Kolah, the director of Henley Business School’s GDPR Transition Programme, will take the stage to demystify the impact of GDPR on HR and share the 10 key steps to prepare ahead of the legislation coming into effect on 25 May and beyond.

Other notable speakers include Christian Illek, CHRO at Deutsche Telekom, who will showcase how the telco leader’s Digital Transformation journey is future-proofing the company by reskilling and Zoe Vince – who is leading HR Innovation and Technology initiatives for the whole UK government – will shed light on the raw potential HR technology has to radically change how the public sector works.  Together with inspirational speakers from leading multinational companies, such as AstraZeneca, JP Morgan Chase & Co., Anglo American, Merck Group, American Express GBT, Pirelli and Cisco, attendees can expect insights to help set their own course on the future of work.

Apart from Brexit and its implications on an organisation’s workforce, other leading topics dominating the agenda include digital transformation, globalisation, GDPR for HR, AI and automation, leadership crisis and company culture. Delegates at the show will gain access to unique content via 130+ sessions and keynotes across 12 stages, including its HR Tech, Smart Data, Talent & Recruitment, Learning, Wellbeing & Engagement, Startup, Think Tanks, Adoption and Going Digital breakouts.
