Workspace that Works: Matching event, 1 Dec

Deptford Market Yard

As part of Future of London’s 2016 Workspace that Works programme, we’ve been exploring how SME workspace provision can contribute to regeneration and economic development.

To bring that to its practical conclusion, we’re pleased to announce a 1st December matching event that will give landlords (councils, developers and property owners) an opportunity to meet a range of workspace operators able to help them fill spaces and contribute to regeneration and development aims.

This half-day event will provide opportunities for public- and private-sector landlords and their advisors to meet successful SME workspace operators.

Landlords: Whether you’re looking to fill spaces, develop area strategies, promote regeneration, deliver on skills and employment commitments and/or support start-ups, we’ll bring together experienced workspace operators who can help you.

Operators: This is a chance to showcase your offer and your know-how to highly interested potential hosts, and to meet and share ideas with peers.

The afternoon will also feature a series of short talks on shifting markets and area-based approaches; design and delivery models; and matching objectives with operators.

Speaking at this event will be:

  • Hermione Brightwell, Opportunity Sutton, LB Sutton tbc
  • Hasanul Hoque, Director of Operations, Camden Collective
  • Lev Kerimol, Principal Regeneration Officer, Greater London Authority
  • Peter O’Brien, Tottenham Regeneration Manager, LB Haringey
  • Martyn Saunders, Director of Regeneration and Spatial Planning, GVA
  • Sara Turnbull, CEO, Bootstrap Co
  • Blossom Young, ACCENTS Project Manager, Poplar HARCA

When: Thursday, 1st December 2016, 13:30-17:30
