Our Summits are staged three times a year and now in their 20th year, in light of the global pandemic the 2021 Smartworking Summit programme will be held in Spring, Summer and Autumn using a virtual platform.
Smartworking Summits consider the impact of the changing nature of work and the intertwined roles of HR, IT, Property and Management Cultures. Throughout the morning you get to share experiences with seasoned main board executives CEOs, CFOs, COOs, CIOs, CHROs, and Group Property/FM Directors from major organisations with genuine "from the coalface experience" who between them reflect all the key decision-makers involved in changing work practices.
Smartworking Summits are far removed from the dull 'run-of-the-mill' events. Rather, you have closed-door discussions where everyone can participate. This dynamic environment allows you to engage with your peers in an informal and collegial setting.
They explore such profound issues such as "What does it take to get people confidently back to the workplace post pandemic?" and "What's the role of the office in the new normal?"
The afternoon features four intimate round table sessions where there's no speakers. The inclusive format draws on the collective experience of all present to offer deeper dives into the issues challenging all organisations.
Smartworking Summits are the events to join industry leaders debating the challenges and opportunities posed by the changing nature of work and the impact on the employee lifecycle journey.

Employees fully understand that work can be done from anywhere with a good internet connection, and IT is no longer the domain of nerdy people talking in indecipherable three-letter acronyms. When it comes to the design of work spaces, there are now abundant sensor technologies to refine and continuously adapt space for optimal individual productivity needs.
Unfortunately, what remains are out-of-step management cultures allied to space lease customs that fail to reflect today’s realities and office fit-outs that focus on trivia rather than the human.
