Now in its 16th year, Growing Gloucestershire 2018 will once again take place at The Growth Hub on 20th June.

Started in 2002, this annual conference's line-up of speakers and influences attracts 200 businesses every year - to share best practice and network with peers.

This year the conference will look at ‘The Fourth Industrial Revolution’; what it is, how it might affect your business and most importantly the opportunities it will present.  

Speaking of the revolution, Growing Gloucestershire Conference Chair, Jonathan Nicholls FCMA, shares his excitement about the rapid range of changes coming to the lives of us all and how we can benefit.

We are on the cusp of changes that will radically transform every aspect our lives and workplaces with white collar professional roles being particularly affected. This revolution will happen much faster than previously because of the speed of modern life and communication.

The 4th Industrial Revolution includes big data, machine learning, artificial intelligence, the cloud and autonomous vehicles. But far greater is the integration of these technologies in ways that are only just becoming apparent. Did you know that computers have taught themselves to "read" medical scans better than humans? And we have absolutely no idea how they are doing it?

This conference is about building awareness and equipping ourselves to thrive in a very different world. It will include a range of informative seminars and keynote speeches, whilst providing invaluable networking opportunities.

The conference in 2018 is being organised by CIMA, CIPD, CMI and the FSB – part of Gloucestershire Professionals.
