5:55pm - 6:25pm: Guest Speaker Melissa Marsden

  • If you knew that a decision you were making for your business could constrain its future potential, would you do it? Surprisingly business leaders make these decisions unknowingly every day. This decision impacts your two most expensive business assets; property & people.
  • When business leaders define their corporate strategy, often the last people that they would think to consult about its execution would be their workplace designers, and fair call. Traditionally the role of the designer has been to put this many little boxes into the big box, however there is a new style of design philosophy evolving, one that takes a far more holistic approach to creating a workplace that embodies your organisations strategic plan and infuses every element of the physical environment with it. Creating a space that influences and guides the specific behaviours needed to execute that vision.
  • The design of our environment presents us with an enormous opportunity to influence the behaviour that occurs within it. Strategic change can lead to cultural change, requiring a new set of values and behaviours… Organisational change is far more likely to succeed when partnered with changes in our physical environments.

6:25pm - 6:55pm: Discussion Panel and Activities

  • There will be a discussion panel to explore participants experiences around this evening's topic and provide the opportunity to ask the speaker questions.
  • Where appropriate the speaker may facilitate activities to enhance participant's learning.

6:55pm - 7:00pm: Session Wrap Up

  • Session Consolidation
  • Thank you
  • Close 7:00pm.
