About Heather McGowan

Heather McGowan Biography

Heather E. McGowan, a future-of-work strategist, assists leaders in preparing their people and organizations for the Fourth Industrial Revolution. The computerization and automation of physical labor characterized the Third Industrial Revolution, establishing the groundwork for the Fourth Industrial Revolution, which would be distinguished by the fast progress of technological tools into the realm of human intellectual work. Humans must constantly learn and adapt in this world, and with this shift comes information overload. McGowan's enlightening visual frameworks and compelling metaphors, all backed by extensive research, bring clarity to this issue. She was named the number one worldwide advocate for education by LinkedIn in 2017. Thomas Friedman, a Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times writer, regularly references McGowan in his books and columns, describing her as "the oasis" for ideas regarding the future of labor. McGowan's workshops assist both employees and leaders in preparing for and adapting to occupations that do not yet exist. AMP Financial, Autodesk, Biogen, Citi, Accor Hotels, AARP, The World Bank, and BD Medical are among McGowan's clientele, which spans from start-ups to publicly listed Fortune 500 corporations. McGowan is a member of the advisory board at Sparks & Honey, a New York-based culture-focused firm that looks to the future for companies. McGowan is frequently cited in the media, most notably in the New York Times. McGowan has held positions at the Rhode Island School of Design, Becker College, and Jefferson University, where she served as the strategic architect of the first undergraduate college dedicated only to innovation. McGowan joined the Swinburne University Centre For the New Workforce in Melbourne, Australia, as a faculty member in 2019. McGowan consults and speaks at conferences throughout the world, and she and her colleagues provide customized advice to assist businesses to adapt to the 4th Industrial Revolution. McGowan's think tank is named Work to Learn because she believes that we learned (once) in order to work in the Third Industrial Revolution and that we will now work in order to learn in the Fourth Industrial Revolution (continuously). McGowan is a Forbes writer and co-editor of the book Disrupt Together: How Teams Consistently Innovate. The Adaptation Advantage: Let Go, Learn Fast, and Thrive in the Future of Work, her most recent book about the future of work, was launched in 2020.
