A champion for humans in the learning-centric future of work, Heather E. McGowan helps leaders prepare their people and organizations for a rapidly changing world.

Learning is the new pension. Heather McGowan

The last few years have forever changed where we work, who works, how we work and measure work, what we do for work and, most importantly, why we work. Renowned future of work expert Heather E. McGowan gives lucidity to complex topics through her easy-to-grasp, research-rich graphic frameworks and powerful metaphors. Heather is a sense maker, a dot connector, a deep thinker, and a pattern matcher who sees things that others miss. She transforms mindsets and entire organizations around the globe with her message about how the next phase of work will focus on continuous learning, rather than simply learning once in order to work.

Tackling subjects like human adaptation, learning agility, the importance of purpose and belonging in talent retention, and the essential role of trust, Heather gives audiences the courage and insight to thrive in a constantly changing business landscape.

In 2017, LinkedIn ranked Heather as its #1 global voice for education and in 2020 she was listed as one of the Top 50 Female Futurists in Forbes. She is the coauthor of bestsellers The Adaptation Advantage (April 2020) and The Empathy Advantage (March 2023).
