Staged 3 times a year and now in their 17th year, the 2018 Smartworking Summit programme is held every March, June and September at a stunning Central London venue. NEW for 2018, the June Smartworking Summit is staged in coordination with the Facilities Show at the ExCel's stunning Capital Suite, Royal Victoria Dock, London E16 1XL.
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 who between them reflect the key decision-makers involved in changing work practices.
Smartworking Summits are far removed from the dull 'run-of-the-mill' events - there's no presentations. Instead, 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.
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.

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.
Is it surprising that 75% of the hard won newly hired top talent leaves within the first 2 years, or that two-thirds of employees regard their workplaces as poorly optimised for productive work!
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.
With their unique blend of seasoned executive speakers stimulating debate throughout the morning and more intimate round table discussions throughout the afternoon, Smartworking Summits are compelling must-attend events for everyone interested in and investing in the changing nature of work.
