Emily Harding, Workplace Design & Culture Lead at Aviva

Alan Bainbridge, Head of Workplace & Corporate Real Estate at BBC

In the build up to the event, Stephen Guy, Chief Integration Officer and Chief of Staff at McCann World Group said:

“This is a great opportunity to hear from a broad and diverse group of workplace industry leaders to inspire a new sense of place for greater collaboration, connection and creativity.”

Matt Waring, Editor of arc magazine, one of the world’s leading publications for lighting design in architecture, recently chaired the third instalment of the ‘Spotlight Series,’ a webinar programme created by the team at Workspace Design Show.

On why lighting should be focused on, Waring said:

“For too long, workspaces have fallen victim to drab, uninspiring, uniform lighting, which can seriously impact our productivity and wellbeing. We spend almost a third of our lifetimes at work, so it’s essential that our workspaces are designed to be comfortable and enjoyable places to work, and lighting forms an integral part of that.”

During the ‘Light Your Space’ session, the panellists, a team of industry specialists, raised some interesting points for discussion, ranging from the new working office to lighting your home office, as well as discussing how the lighting industry can do more than just simply produce products.

Panellists included:

Paul Nulty, Founder of Nulty Lighting

Rebecca Hodge, Senior Lighting Designer at Foundry Lighting

Susan Lake, Design Director at Susan Lake Lighting Design

Don’t worry – if you missed the session, it will be available to watch again shortly via the Workspace Design Show website. Make sure to also check the website regularly, as it won’t be long before there is news on more sessions around hot topics in workplace design!
