[Video] The Rise of the Entrepreneur of One

Catalant Staff

At the recent Reimagining Work Summit, Catalant brought together a group of executives and thought leaders to discuss how businesses can operate with agility and innovate faster.

In this exclusive presentation, Andrea Black, Catalant’s VP of Network Strategy, asks the panel some thoughtful questions about the shift in workforce planning, labor demographics, and what it means to be an employee. Kristin Sharp, who runs the Work, Workers, and Technology program at New America, explains how to categorize various kinds of emerging work.

“Many of the new emerging jobs that we’re seeing require somebody to be more creative and self-motivated.”

Peter Mahoney, Founder & CEO of Plannuh, and Carlos Castelan, Managing Director at The Navio Group, describe some of the innovative projects they’re working on as independent experts. Mahoney points out that the gig economy is part of the way work happens these days and companies need to figure out how to leverage it to stay relevant and competitive in today’s disruptive market.
