    Panel: The Big Picture

    What does the car industry look like now compared to this time last year, and where is it headed?
    As OEMs continue to mobilise in response to consumer and regulatory pressure to move from dirty to clean engines and transition from hardware manufacturers to mobility service providers, what’s getting in the way of progress? As the industry and its partners - old and new - move inexorably forwards to the future of the car, where do our panellists see forks in the road ahead?

    Panel: Organizational Transformation

    Carmakers must change with the times or get swept away. OEMs have a massive opportunity to compete in the new mobility space, but only if they can change the way they think, and the way they do business. The biggest barrier to success in the new mobility space is OEM corporate culture and organizational structures, which tend to be hidebound by tradition. Meaningful cultural, technological and organizational change is hard, though, and many OEMs are struggling to make it happen. This panel will reveal some of the secrets of transformation from the corporate leaders that are deploying human capital, digital know-how and the newest technologies to change their company’s DNA: from the inside out, and the outside, in.

    Panel: Workforce transformation

    As cars turn into experiences on wheels, the car industry workforce is transforming too. In the future, it will need to include more technologists, data analysts, and consumer behaviour strategists and will include jobs that no-one has heard of yet. The same will be true of the companies in the car maintenance and repairs sector: they will need sophisticated software skills and different kinds of hardware skills. Human employees will increasingly find themselves working with intelligent machines. What does all this mean for the industry, and what are OEMs doing to plug the skills gap? And as new kinds of jobs begin to take shape, old jobs are disappearing. How is the industry handling the fall-out on the one hand, and making the most of new opportunities on the other?

How are the latest tie-ups between OEMs, big tech, start-up tech, insurance companies, car-sharing businesses and city authorities finding ways to monetise multi-modal transport models and the new kinds of experiences on offer to passengers and drivers, as they get from point A to point B?

    As well as getting us from A to B, the car is now a powerful data accumulator. Sensor technology can connect cars to nearly anything you can think of: to the drivers and passengers they contain, the roads beneath them, the satellites orbiting through space above them, as well as to the heating systems, fridges and TVs in our homes. What is the potential for all this data? Who owns it? Is there a danger of misuse? How can the car industry make money from all this data being harvested by our cars as they move back and forth through the landscape? What might the societal benefits and pitfalls of this proliferation of data be?
