Workspace Business Insight Dinner - Feeding your business collaboration, innovation and creativity

Are digitally demanding and disruptive businesses ready to drive the future?

Workspace, in conjunction with Knowledge Peers, are delighted to be hosting a business insight dinner at Westbourne Studios.

Directors and founders from customers across Workspace’s portfolio are invited to register their interest in attending this complimentary event. We leave ample time for attendees to network with the other senior leaders and of course enjoy delicious food and drinks.

As the needs of digitally demanding and disruptive businesses rise, technology is changing the way individuals can work, but also changing the way businesses work and interact with each other. Are you ready for these changes?

These changes are transforming London and other cities of the Future, driving huge change in working practices and culture. This Business Insight event looks at what is required to create a truly collaborative, innovative and creative environment for those working in our City’s fastest growing sector.   

This is a broad topic – touches on the new mobility of working (how your “office” follows you) through to the way knowledge sharing is breaking down the walls between businesses, to the value of flexible working environments and the design and technology that will drive change.

We also have a limited number of tickets available for non-Workspace customers, please register your interest in attending ASAP.
