API Webinar

By surveying the chief HR officers at some of the world’s leading companies, the World Economic Forum has released The Future of Jobs report revealing the top 10 skills you’ll need by 2020.

The API invites you to join us and our stellar list of speakers to discuss what they see are the skills of the future and how they are particularly applicable to the property industry. 

The Skills of the Future will be the focus of this second webinar, exploring questions such as:
