Insights Live: Building a Culture of Experimentation  

May 6th, 8.00PST/ 11.00 EST/ 16.00 BST

We've all just undertaken the biggest global experiment ever, and it was surprisingly successful.  New practices, procedures and technologies mean there's still many unknowns, so why wouldn't we continue that practical experimentation in our workplaces?  After all, innovation depends on it!  Continuous testing, or the perpetual beta principle presents a low risk and engaging way of trialling new concepts, whether it be working styles, office occupancy levels or suitable furniture, allowing organizations to discover the model most successful for them.  Join us as we hear from our expert panelists on this exciting topic!

Panellists:
James Lawrence - Design Strategist, Senior Associate, Gensler
Corinne Murray - Director of Workplace Strategy & Innovation, RXR Realty 
Birgit Gebhardt - Trend Expert in Future of Work and Design

Insights Live: From Corporate Conformity to Individuality
April 8th

Recent months have seen a shift from corporate uniformity to a focus on individuals.  A renewed recognition and respect not only for their unique skills & talents, but for their needs too.  And this is just as relevant in our workplaces – personalization is a great counterpoint to globalization and corporate conformity: human experiences are curated based on needs, cultural differences, personality and style, resulting in greater self-expression for employees and higher engagement with the goals of the organisation.  Join us as we discuss the impact of this movement on workspaces and design with our experts.

Panellists:
Don Watson - SVP Global Real Estate & Facilities, Oracle
Sonya Simmonds - Global Head of Design & Build, Spotify
Laura Guido-Clark - CEO, Love Good Color

Insights Live: Panel Debate: There is No New Normal 
March 4th

Possibly one of the most used phrases over the last year: ‘new normal’.  But will there be ONE new normal for workplaces?  We don’t think so.  With millions of people all around the globe affected, new best practises will vary across roles, organisations & industries resulting in various models of hybrid – this is no place for one size fits all.  Recent news has highlighted some companies transitioning to a permanent ‘work from anywhere’ solution, but in such a state of flux, only time will tell how successful these strategies will be. Join us this week to hear from global corporate workspace experts what’s actually happening in their organisations as we discuss the many new normals.

Panellists;
Assal Yavari- Senior Director of Global Workplace, Okta Inc
Andie Moeder- Director of Workplace Strategy, Jacobs
Francis Aquino- Workplace Leader, Ex-Honey, Headspace & Uber

Insights Live: Panel Debate: The Office Won’t Die – It Just Keeps Evolving   
January 28th

Enforced working from home has taught us there’s parts of the workplace experience we just can’t do without.  But mass-adoption of remote and hybrid working caused us to re-evaluate the purpose of the office, and the one thing that’s certain is continuous evolution.  To thrive on this change, we need flexibility.  Agility enables us to maximise performance, bringing a host of opportunities to both employer and employee alike.


What does this mean for design? And what are the implications on real estate portfolios? Join us as we discuss the role of flexibility will play in high-performing workplaces. 

Panellists;
Laura Walsh - Senior Director, Global Real Estate & Workplace, Avid Technology
David Heyburn - Managing Director, Edison Spaces
