Re-working the future

The company brings together thought-leaders from the worlds of business, technology and science to discuss how new developments can disrupt industry and society. Their events take place around the world, showcasing the research and technological innovations that will directly impact our lives in the future.

Nikita's rich grounding in innovation, entrepreneurship and future-gazing underpin her success with Re.Work. She studied the theory of urbanisation and the future of cities at LSE, then moved into a variety of roles in the charity and aid sectors, covering business innovation, events and marketing – including stints at UNESCO and LSE's student incubator. Her unique combination of academic theory and practical experience have shaped Nikita's commitment to solving some of the world's greatest challenges through tech, science and business.
