Details have been announced for this year’s flagship WORKTECH London conference that takes place on the 27th and 28th November at the Queen Elizabeth Hall, Southbank Centre.
The two-day conference and exhibition will focus on the future of work and the workplace from a holistic perspective, exploring real estate, technology, leadership, design and architecture. Local and international thought leaders join the speaker line up to discuss the latest trends and thinking in workplace innovation.
Speakers include the former Commander of the International Security Assistance Force in Afghanistan, General Stanley McChrystal, who will discuss field-tested leadership lessons, Matthew Taylor, Chief Executive of the RSA and author of ‘Good work: the Taylor review of modern working practices’; Torin Douglas, writer and Ex-BBC Correspondent; Philip Ross, Futurologist, Cordless Group and UnWork; Jeremy Myerson, RCA and WORKTECH Academy; Patrick Marsh, GSK; Will Esplen, Deloitte LLP; Bruce Daisley, EMEA Twitter; Nick Welsh, Government Property Agency and Tim Yendell, RBS, among many others.
The conference will explore four key themes:
The sentient workplace – how the workplace will drive smart decisions and where companies will realise benefits as the battle of talent intensifies and focus shifts to contextualised employee experience and computerised technology.
Four futures of work – the RSA’s model for four different scenarios of the future of work based on uncertain economic and trading relationship in Europe.
Science of the workplace – how the workplace is directly impactful not only on our productivity but more importantly our health.
The future of work in world cities – an exploration into the crucial role architecture plays in world cities and the need for a holistic approach to the built environment.
Caroline Bell, Managing Director for Unwired Ventures, who runs WORKTECH, has said: “WORKTECH London has become one of the most innovative and inspirational programmes in the workplace professional calendar since it began well over a decade ago. In June we held two events in LATAM and have conferences in Switzerland, Paris, Singapore and Hong Kong still to come this year. London is our biggest event and through fantastic support from sponsors and everyone who has participated in the last few years we have really driven forward the workplace agenda from the holistic viewpoint of technology, people and place.”
The WORKTECH conference series has been running since 2003 and is now in more than 25 cities around the globe. For more information, and to find out how to register to attend, those interested can visit the event webpage here.
