Hear from global thought leaders

WORKTECH24 Amsterdam will feature leading international thinkers from industry and academia.

Our speakers represent some of the world’s biggest brands and best universities and research departments, alongside radical visionaries from innovative organisations.

Through inter-disciplinary speakers and learning experience, we focus on bringing cutting edge ideas and inspiration to the workplace community to enhance creativity and move thinking forward.

Instead of focusing on peer to peer innovation through imitation, we aim to curate a unique programme, bringing together experts in the fields of people, place and technology and relevant adjacencies to reflect on the future of work and workplace.

Programme highlights at WORKTECH24 Amsterdam include:

Belinda Norman Walker, Director, TMT Lead, Continental Europe CBRE, formerly Director, Real Estate and Workplace EMEA at Uber presenting a case study about Uber’s journey to its new headquarters at Tripolis Park, Amsterdam. Belinda will share how by embracing innovative hybrid strategies, sustainability certifications, and employee centric design principles, Uber set a precedent for employers seeking to thrive in the new workplace landscape.

Professor Dr Marleen Huysman, Director of the KIN Center for Digital Innovation, Vrije Universiteit and her colleague, Postdoctoral Researcher, Jana Retkowsky presenting the findings from new research into how the use of AI is impacting traditional knowledge ties between peers, and the long-term consequences for organisational dynamics.

An expert panel featuring representatives from Ericsson, IKEA and Zoku International exploring innovative approaches to creating and measuring flexible and adaptable workspaces and smart environments that enhance employee wellbeing, productivity and engagement.
