Today’s office space is changing rapidly: cubicles and corner offices are increasingly being replaced by collaborative workspaces, on-site amenities and out of office workspaces. This panel discussion event will offer perspectives on the topic from all angles with speakers from property consultants, corporate workspace designers, principle investors and environmental sustainability experts.

The event will take the form of a panel discussion at Cass Business School followed by an opportunity to meet and talk to the speakers, current students and real estate alumni. Complimentary food and refreshments will be provided.
