00:51:55 Andy Barnes: @Bryan can I support you on the platforms one… the first group looked light on people
00:53:01 Freddie Laker: Can I ask a question?
00:53:11 Catherine McGowin: Go @Andy!
00:53:26 Steve Rader: @Freddie Sure!
00:53:34 Dyan Finkhousen: What’s up @Freddie?
00:54:01 Open Assembly:
00:55:46 Arthur Ransier: Is the goal to include freelancers among the membership? If so, we may want to include a member benefits workstream
00:56:55 Steve Rader: @Arthur I know we’ve talked about ways to ensure we have the voice of the freelancer
00:57:08 Alistair Hofert: Agree on the data as a pillar for machine learning matching for demand and supply in the market, at a task and gig level.
00:57:29 Dyan Finkhousen: @Balaji super important point – data strategy will be so important
00:57:33 Andy Barnes: @Arthur it would be a big benefit for freelancers if they could join ‘1’ or ‘2’ platforms and have access to a collective that covers ’10-20’ more
00:57:34 Carin-Isabel Knoop: how about a workstream on culture and support of open talent workforce to max productivity?
00:57:53 Arthur Ransier: I know the talent community is included in the audience on the manifesto — but not seeing them included in the workstreams.
00:59:30 Alex Wente: I’m interested in collaborating on the manifesto and enterprise education!
01:00:48 Roland Rosevear: Great point
01:01:06 Carin-Isabel Knoop: if ok to explore if there is the potential for another workstream and people are interested in the community/culture/connections/productivity stream pls contact me ; how to attract more talent by creating more such support
01:02:11 Rich Copsey: it’s the three-legged stool – supply, demand and talent; they are all equally important
01:03:30 Gavin McClafferty: @Mark – always great to hear from you!
01:03:40 Gavin McClafferty: Absolutely raw passion.
01:04:06 Steve Rader: I think that is a great point… the big bad wolf is the relentless rapid change
01:04:39 Balaji: automation and machines are the big bad wolves.
01:04:39 Carin-Isabel Knoop: not that’s the opportunity!
01:04:39 Tom O’Malley: I like the idea on that word doc of working groups….are there facilitators for each that are going to organize effort and report out progress.
01:06:02 Steve Rader: This group is dealing with both the emergence of a new work model AND how that can address the big changes that are upon us with automation and rapid change
01:06:25 Steve Rader: @Balaji… always about the shoes
01:06:41 Dyan Finkhousen: Lol @Steve
01:07:30 Balaji: Steve… fair enough.
01:07:41 Steve Rader: Got to run! This was great. Thanks everyone!
01:07:53 Dyan Finkhousen: Thanks @Steve!
01:07:54 Gavin McClafferty: @Steve – great to see you!
01:08:51 Tom O’Malley: Look at the average age of F500…the big bad wolf is that companies are not keeping up with speed of execution and its causing a lot of inefficiencies in people’s lives. Like trying to park your car and having to repark every 5 min.
01:09:22 Carin-Isabel Knoop: @tom great analogy. bye PassionPeeps, see you next week!
01:09:30 Bryan Peña: great call OA. See you next week
