Work States Futures Preview

Community-exclusive Online Event - 15 March



We’re no longer talking about where we work, but about how and why we work. Here we explore the new states of work – and the spaces and mindsets needed to make them thrive.

In this free online event, including a live Q&A with our experts, we unveil a preview of our spring/summer macrotrend, Work States Futures, exclusively for members of The Future Laboratory Community. Throughout this inspirational session, we’ll be exploring what this new era will mean for key sectors. 


Join us as we delve into an executive summary of the new macrotrend and open up the conversation to a live Q&A to unpack what this trend will mean for your business.
