Navigating the Gig Economy

You often hear about the new world of work, but the reality is that for many, it has already arrived. The gig economy isnt just for Uber and Lyft drivers anymore. Best-in-class professionals are leaving their corporate gigs to focus on consulting and building portfolio careers; and more and more corporations are hiring on-site, on-demand technicians. Recent studies predict that independents will make up a majority of the U.S. workforce within a decade.

This Club E panel, featuring Brendon Schrader, CEO of Antenna, Mynul Khan, CEO of Field Nation, and Chad Eckes, Principal and Founder of C Squared E, will be focusing on navigating this new world of work, and equipping you to make the most of this incredible talent pool. Whether youre looking to hire the best for your next project, or looking to make the shift to independent work, this conversation is one not to be missed.
