Ep16: What is the future of work? LIVE show with Charlie Oliver, Galina Ozgur & Lisa Cervenka

Will automation and AI help or hurt us? David, Joe and guests discuss what working with each other in our not-so-certain future may look like.


Charlie Oliver - Charlie’s years of experience in the trenches of old media include working in advertising in New York at such media goliaths as BBDO Worldwide and Condé Nast, to producing sitcoms and dramas at Sony Pictures Entertainment, Paramount Pictures, Warner Brothers, Dreamworks and Oscar-award winning indie production companies, to event management at the Sundance Film Festival.

Galina Ozgur - Galina Ozgur is General Manager of Grand Central Tech (GCT)— a tech startup campus and accelerator program focused on high-caliber founding teams and companies poised for scale. She is responsible for building GCT’s acceleration programming, supporting the portfolio and managing Grand Central Tech’s network of mentors and experts. Prior to joining GCT, she was the first hire at Entrepreneurs Roundtable Accelerator in New York City where she successfully ran 7 consecutive cohorts and Demo Days and managed platform and community.

Lisa Cervenka - Lisa is co-founder of Brand Amper, a brand building tool acquired by The Muse. A Brand Nerd for 20 years, she migrated from traditional marketing to the most dynamic brand of all: the employer brand. Dedicated to bold transparency, she does not believe in the notion of employees being “on-brand” and has read thousands of employee stories created with Brand Amper that prove the benefit of giving employees an authentic voice.
