Remote working has become the new normal and the future of the physical office is in question. How can we innovate in the workplace to meet the challenges of the post-COVID world?

With the rise of agile working, hot-desking and new technological innovations, the traditional office space no longer serves the needs of the modern workforce. So why have most office spaces remained relatively unchanged for decades?

In conversation with Matthew Stadlen, workplace innovation expert Chris Kane will highlight the bold new solutions to workplace practices which have the potential to invigorate employee productivity while trimming excess costs.

He will draw upon his extensive knowledge and experience in commercial property to investigate the new-found significance of innovative corporate real estate, providing insights into the ground-breaking strategies that are transforming the commercial property sector.

It’s an unmissable event for any business leader looking to make their workplace fit for purpose in the 21st century.
