August 4th, 2015

In today’s evolving workplace, work is starting to look a bit like home, and home like work. So, what are the implications of this new-generation ‘blended’ approach to WorkLife?

We’ve drawn together leading thought leaders from around the nation and the world, to lead the discussion around the impact of design on our rapidly evolving workplace culture. It’s going to be lively, enlightening and game changing.
