Business tourism and event designers are all about creating awesome experiences. So why does it suck when we have to go back to the office? We've been sold some myths - like open office plans are always better for collaboration or that aesthetic design has no bearing on performance. But look a little deeper and you'll find some untapped productivity potential, sometimes by just moving where you sit or who you're sitting next to!
Workplace dynamics strategist Melissa Marsden shares little known secrets about the relationship between workplace design and productivity. With over 20 years' experience, she's developed a unique methodology that combines interior design, business strategies, and intentional branding to bring out the best in teams. Founder of workplace design service COMUNiTI, her new book is The Next Workplace.
