In May 2018 I was invited by Desso/Tarkett to chair a panel event to close their Clerkenwell Design Week programme of events with a panel that 're-imagined the workspaces of the future', bringing together everything that has been discussed across the week. Working with Hattrick PR, I put together a panel, comprising applied futurist Tom Cheesewright, Gensler’s Ankita Dwivedi, Richard Francis of Monomoy and workplace consultant Hannah Nardini. We talked about everything from why today's organisations are like Melanesian Cargo Cults to the impact that Generations X, Y, Z and Alpha are having on contemporary workplaces, from the technology-driven transparency that driving better air and sound quality to a Royal College of Art conceived model for person-centric office design.
