Key Themes

The New World of Work: Challenges & Emerging Trends


The pandemic has been a catalyst of re-shaping and re-thinking a new world of work.  We examine what’s on the horizon for the future of work, looking at how business leaders should respond and what they should prioritise in the months ahead. We will explore essential insights to help you navigate today’s challenges and start to prepare for the future.

The Future Workplace Ecosystem: Purpose & Place


How can companies make the office an attractive proposition to employees who now have more choice in where and how they work?  We discuss the post pandemic impact on work, space, buildings and the effects on employee and company productivity, well-being, behaviour and culture.

Workplace Experience – A New Reality


How we engage with technology, space and each other is changing.  Companies are accelerating plans to invest in new technology and environments.  We explore what the post pandemic workplace experience will look like in 2021 and beyond.
