Crestron Electronics is hosting Modern Work Summit 2023 in Madrid, Spain, on 23-24 May. The two-day event aims to inspire attendees and encourage discussion around implementing a more dynamic digital workplace.
Digital workplace specialists, information technology managers, facilities representatives and human resources leaders will collaborate at the event with the aim of rethinking the modern workplace in line with cultural changes.
Keynote speakers for the event are author and journalist Andreas Ekström and founder of UnGroup Philip Ross, who will take part in discussions with representatives from Microsoft, Intel, Gensler, Jabra, Accenture and Wainhouse Research.
Ross’s session ‘Unworking: the reinvention of the modern office’ will outline a manifesto for ‘unworking’ that focuses on unlearning old habits associated with an outdated office and creating new ones fit for a new age of digital technology and diverse workforces.
Ekström’s keynote ‘The power of &’ will discuss changes for the future of the workplace and the balance between liberty and control, independence and detailed coaching.
“How do we make decisions in the digital workplace?” said Ekström. “How are we inventing a new idea of collective work while not being together in the same room? These are the most difficult challenges for the digital decade and the Modern Work Summit will be a fantastic forum for our presenters and attendees to think forward on how to address these challenges.”
Other sessions include ‘Leadership in workplace design: insights on the hybrid campus’, which will be hosted by Holger Resinger, senior vice president at Jabra, and ‘Transforming organisation in a digital first world,’ hosted by Astrid Steingrueber, client computing category lead at Intel.
Changes in the workplace that are inspiring these discussions are reflected in Crestron’s recent report ‘Tackling the Modern Workplace by the Numbers’, which showed that 84 per cent of employees regularly have at least one remote participant in meetings.
“As technology innovators, collaboration and purpose-built solutions that foster productivity have always been top of mind for the AV/IT industry,” says Brad Hintze, executive vice president of marketing at Crestron. “The Modern Work Summit is a unique opportunity for leaders from various factions of a business to come together, hear from experts in the field, and equip themselves with the strategies needed to set their employees up for success in the workplace.”
