Building the future proof workplace

60-minute presentation with Q&A, facilitated by Sodexo Ambassador, Matt Dawson MBE

Join Julie Ennis, CEO of Corporate Services at Sodexo and access exclusive insights of Sodexo's WorkLife research on critical topics of workplace transformation, food & facilities, well-being, and sustainability as foundation of building a future-proof workplace, while exploring the organic dynamics between people, space, and sustainability at the workplace.

Then join renowned futurist, TED talker and author Anne Lise Kjaer as she unveils her visionary perspective on the workspaces of 2030 and beyond. Explore the future of when, where, and how we'll work, and ponder the ultimate question: why work at all? The future snapshots and scenarios are underpinned by knowledge culled from an analysis of white papers, media and reports - alongside 'deep dive' interviews with a diverse group of visionaries, experts and industry leaders. Her findings are considered through the lens of the emotional, physical, smart and purpose-driven dimensions of tomorrow's workplaces.

There will be a short Q&A, followed by themed breakout sessions tailored to your interests.
