Given the change in the way we use the office now I’m keen to see some modular products that help us create collaborative spaces whilst protecting future flexibility, and of course, being inclusive for all. The increased focus on neurodiversity across society also offers designers/manufacturers the chance to show something innovative and I would be really keen to hear how they have sought and built on user feedback to develop products which truly offer something different.
Technology is also a key interest for me, how can we use that to support all building users to have the best experience possible?

Data capture technology – the workplace needs good and accurate data as we test and iterate designs within our spaces. There is a lot of experimentation that needs to happen.
Employee Experience engagement platforms – Ensuring a seamless experience when going to a physical workplace is important. If you take away the friction with booking spaces, catering etc then it is one less hurdle for your employee base not to interact with at the workplace.
