Pack Your Own Lunch: Being Prepared for a New World of Work | Mark Jesty | TEDxCollingwood

ex2 Academy’s very own COO, Mark Jesty, gave a talk in November 2019 on the New World of Work.

65.2 million people in Canada and the US alone now identify themselves as working in the ‘gig economy’. Our current education system is founded on the principle of the 3 R’s…..a concept introduced in the 1800’s. This gap creates social and economic tension, as well as outstanding opportunities!  

In this provocative talk, Mark Jesty challenges the way we look at work and how to stay relevant in the ‘new world of work’. Mark has spent the last 20+ years on the frontlines of the changing world of work. Working with hundreds of organizations of all sizes and some of the best and brightest minds in business, Mark has been part of a transformation of how we work and learn.

Working with businesses in Canada for 20 years, Mark helped organizations develop their people in a multitude of ways. Now as the COO of ex2 Academy his journey into the future of work continues.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
