Topic: The Gig Economy: The Human Cloud and the Transformation of Today’s Workforce
Presenter: Ted Catino, Founder of GigSmart
Join us on Wednesday, June 20 to learn about the trends and opportunities of the Gig Economy from Cincinnati entrepreneur and Founder of GigSmart, Ted Catino.
As marketing, creative, communications and sales professionals, we have always known the value of a gig. Whether it’s an entrepreneurial endeavor, a transitional strategy, or a great side-hustle to supplement a day job, our talents and skills are in demand for companies that need outstanding supplemental, periodic, transitional or specialized assistance.
The Gig Economy is a hot topic, captivating headlines with trends that are defining the modern labor market. Increasing numbers in the labor force are choosing independent work over traditional employee positions at increasing rates year-over-year. Businesses are also increasingly interested in a “just-in-time” labor process that allows access to specialized labor, as well as, extra headcount when business needs increase.
A McKinsey report on the Gig Economy makes a very strong argument that the Industrial Revolution moved much of the workforce from self-employment to structured payroll jobs. Now the digital revolution may be creating a shift in the opposite direction, and marketers are right there at the forefront of the trend.
For this event, we’ve teamed up with our Young Professionals Committee so that our Signature Speaker Series ends just as our Speed Networking event begins at the same venue, the amazing new Fueled Collective shared workspace and event center.
Speed Networking is one of our community’s favorite events – practice starting conversations with marketing peers and build up your professional network via a fast, fun facilitated networking exercise.
We hope you can join us for both events – you can register for both via the same Eventbrite link below!
