What's in this episode? In conversation are an insight and data specialist on the new economy, an investor in vocational learning technology, and a specialist in supporting executive leadership and teams development. In true podcast fashion, there are tea slurps, baby cries and computer dings, in amongst the gems about specific training to working online, more creative online working tools, and supporting employees wellbeing with all the change hitting us at present. This episode is about building back better and takes its starting point from a World Economic Forum article on 5 ways to reset labour markets after coronavirus recovery, which you can find shared on our show notes. Plus, a few listener messages from WISE and Education Technology.  Thank you Ufi Voctech Trust for supporting this series and vocational skills development in the UK through their investments and grants in vocational technology.
