Maryana Iskander, CEO of Harambee Youth Employment Accelerator, shares her perspective around adapting to new ways of work in Episode 3 of Echo Radio’s “Where is the office?”.

Maryana speaks to Echo Radio about how the future of work is transforming. Work is more than a physical space. It is a place where ideas are sparked, people connect and align to one another. She highlights for us one of the things many people take for granted and one of those is the high costs of data in a remote world. The challenges our youth face trying to find work and to work in a remote world.

Being a top international leader, it is inspiring to listen to her take on giving people the recognition they deserve. She speaks about the basic need to be recognised and belong. As she tells us human resilience has no limits!

Work has changed drastically in the past few months. A tiny virus has got us all asking, “what should we do with an office, do we need an office and what does an office represent?” This series, sponsored by Giant Leap and hosted by Linda Trim, tackles many of the issues we are facing in the world of work at present and how we can make work and work life better for leaders and their employees. Tapping into the minds of great leaders and professionals to explore the question that has everyone talking… Where is the office?
