“Gary is one of the world’s foremost thinkers on how to effectively shape the future of work,” said Julie Zadow, executive director of WorkHuman. “His book, The Future of Management, offers incredible insight on how to create business success by focusing on the power people have to move an organization. This is the mission of WorkHuman – to empower a company’s talent through humanity. We look forward to Gary sharing his expertise on how to incorporate the WorkHuman mission into workplaces around the world.”

“It is time to revamp the way we work,” said Hamel. “My research has shown that bureaucracy has no role in moving companies forward. Instead of employers being hard on employees for not meeting certain standards of performance, we need them to ask themselves how they can create a work environment that encourages employees to want to do their best work.”

Hamel is one of the world’s most influential business thinkers and a sought-after management speaker on the topics of strategy, leadership, innovation and change. He has been on the faculty of the London Business School for more than 30 years and is the director of the Management Innovation eXchange. Hamel has written 17 articles for the Harvard Business Review and is the most reprinted author in the Review’s history. His most recent bestselling books are The Future of Management and What Matters Now. Fortune magazine describes Hamel as “the world’s leading expert on business strategy,” and the Financial Times calls him a “management innovator without peer.” Hamel has been ranked by The Wall Street Journal as the world’s most influential business thinker and is a fellow of the Strategic Management Society and of the World Economic Forum.
