Join British Council for Offices North members and non-members for an informal breakfast seminar at Leeds University Business School on the importance of experience in design and ways of working.
Dr Matthew Davis’ pivotal Adapting Offices research will open this breakfast seminar’s discussions on how effective hybrid working is both for the University as a business and for its employees. Joined by Ann Allen, recently appointed as Director of Campus Innovation and Development, together they will explore how campus redesign and the physical workspace can impact employee productivity and wellbeing.
Matt will assess how interpretation of his project team’s findings can be meaningfully put into practice at Leeds University Business School alongside Ann Allen’s vision for a re-imagined ‘smart and sustainable campus’ to support a new digital model for higher education. They will address the importance of creating purposeful experiences for both students and staff on campus, recognising that education provides the future workforce and therefore plays a huge part in setting expectations for future workplace design.
Please note that this is an in-person, informal breakfast seminar, hosted and sponsored by Leeds University Business School in partnership with the British Council for Offices North.
The programme includes a breakfast, presentations and a campus tour. Full details to be announced.
