Oct. 21-22 2014 – Villa Méditerranée, Marseille

A big thank you for having participated in Lift with Fing 2014 and for making it such a great success! It was a real pleasure meeting you all. We really hope that you enjoyed the experience and left inspired and nurtured with new contacts and tools to help you further your ventures.

We extend our thanks to the whole Fing team who did an amazing job all throughout the event.


About Lift with Fing 2014

In 2014, Lift with Fing will focus on the future of Work in a digital society, with a strong focus on how individuals encounter, create or hack work organizations:

  • 40% to 70% of today's jobs could be automated in 20 years → What will “work” look like in the future?
  • Someone entering the workforce today will go through more than 10 employers before retiring → Can we rethink work communities beyond the office, beyond the enterprise, beyond even jobs?
  • Individuals joining a company come with their own skills, devices, tools, networks, and reputation → How will organizations contribute to their staff’s professional worth?
  • Employed, self-employed, entrepreneurs, in training, retired, volunteer, contributor: we’ll be all that at a time → How do we assess the value of work, of other activities, and what relationship should they have with income?
  • Inequalities keep rising between knowledge workers and others, executives and non-executives, entrepreneurs and employees → Can digital opportunities extend to all?

These questions, and others, will be at the core of Lift France's 2014 edition.
