Collaboration is much talked about today, especially when it comes to workplace design. As companies employ more knowledge workers, it is no longer just what you know, but whatyou do with what you know. Successfully designed collaboration spaces as well as an enablingculture are key to helping this along. The nature of work has changed and increasingly work iswhat we do, not a place we go to. 

We would be delighted if you can join us for three individual but connecting seminars about theworkplace, we will discover that through design and collaboration you can create a moreproductive, efficient and effective business.
