We are currently living in the Fourth Industrial Revolution meaning everything from our normalised standard of living and life expectancy, to our skillset and healthcare quality, are in a constant state of change. The future of work – your career path, what jobs will exist, and what skills or knowledge you’ll need to remain relevant, is at the top of working professionals’ minds, paired with feelings of anxiety and insecurity.

Paul Appleby, Chief Executive Officer of Kinetica recently wrote an article in Forbes, where he wrote:
