Technology and changing employees' expectations are shaking up the traditional workplace. In a short space of time, co-working giant WeWork has become the largest office occupier in Central London; 43% of all US workers now work remotely to some degree; and the Internet of Things (IoT) is reshaping the office beyond recognition.

Join us and three industry experts from
Telstra, Ideal Workspace (Altizen) and WeWork and as they weigh in on:

- Why Co-Working is the new destination for startups, and how established companies can participate to gain an innovative edge;
- What the best practices are for Remote Working, and how it can be made to succeed for your company; and
- How an IoT-enabled office improves the ways employees interact with their workplace environment, thereby increasing productivity, health and improving resource allocation.

Whether you are a HR professional looking to attract and retain talent, a Corporate Real estate professional seeking to understand the workplace trends, or an Executive interested in gaining an edge through your office space, you will walk away with new insights into the future of the workplace.
