Beyond Walls© sessions

On the 2nd Thursday of each month, you can expect a thought-provoking, 1 hour session with a 360-degree view of the cornerstones on which a change-ready, inclusive, and sustainable future world of work can be built.

Our programme goes beyond just the ‘how-many-days-at-the-office’ question and shines a light on the evolving world of work as it explores the impact and untapped potential of new ways of working, organisational culture, and the workplace. During the first three Beyond Walls© sessions, we will question what drives a strong workspace culture post-pandemic, reveal the invisible layers of a change-ready workplace, and address today’s and tomorrow’s challenges and opportunities. There will also be a 15-minute Q&A timeframe at the end of each session, allowing you to address individual questions or concerns to our experts.

Accessible, applicable, and relevant for anyone who wants to understand changing values, needs and attitudes towards work, push their thinking for a new and improved workplace beyond the obvious or find their rhythm within an ever-changing reality of work.
