Food for thought

Workers will need different skills to thrive in the workplace of the future. We’ll see a growing demand for advanced technological skills such as programming. Social, emotional, and higher cognitive skills — such as creativity, critical thinking, and complex information processing — will also be in demand.... Training and retraining mid-career workers and new generations for the coming challenges will be another imperative.” — James Manyika, Chairman and Director, McKinsey Global Institute [read the full interview]

AI is about enabling machines to augment humans — in other words, to complement human skills — rather than merely replace them. In most cases, AI’s skills are different to a human’s, so we are moving towards a symbiosis of the two.” — Robin Bordoli, CEO, Figure Eight

(We know parting with hard-earned money is not an easy decision. We believe big decisions need careful consideration.)

What we write

With 35+ years of writing experience and an active writing schedule, we write for business, technical, creative, and personal projects—yours and ours.

To ensure we give you our very best, we limit project acceptance.
