Work Design TALKS: The Latest from Leesman

If you follow the latest research behind what is happening with Workplace Design, chances are you are reading information compiled by Leesman. We are fortunate to have engaged Leesman’s MD of North America, Eleanor Forster, to share the latest thinking based on their extensive research portfolio. Join us on Tuesday, October 23 at the newly completed Meeton6 conference space at theMART in Chicago for a lively discussion with information new to North America and pick up some CEU credit as well!

The Leesman presentation will be followed by a special guest presentation by Joseph White, who is Herman Miller’s Director of Workplace Strategy, Design, & Management. Herman Miller recently completed a two-year longitudinal study of workplace effectiveness involving 24 organizations from around the globe. In the study they surveyed employees and leaders, meticulously documented their spaces, and captured qualitative and quantitative data on the effectiveness of their workplace designs. A preview of the learnings will be presented relative to achieving top business priorities such as attraction & retention and promoting knowledge sharing.

Evening Schedule:
4:00-4:30pm Meet and mingle with event participants and guests
4:30 – 6:00pm Presentations (Eleanor Forster, Leesman & Joseph White, Herman Miller)
6:00-7:00pm Q+A, Cocktails, connecting and community + tours of Herman Miller’s showroom

We anticipate this lively and interactive program to appeal to 100+ of our most loyal readers including end-users, A&D firm principals, and key workplace practitioners. The outcomes of the event will be shared with our entire WDM audience of over 51,400 followers per month.

theMART has been an icon in Chicago’s history since the 1930s. It was developed to create a central marketplace where retailers could come to buy their wares all under one roof. Today, theMART is the world’s largest commercial building and the largest wholesale design center.  The Chicago icon encompasses 4.2 million gross square feet, spans two city blocks and rises 25 stories.

Our presentation portion of the event will take place on the 6th floor at Meeton6, theMART’s new state-of-the-art conference center and then we will continue the event on the 3rd floor inside Herman Miller’s showroom.
