The Workplace Event Announces Speaker Line-Up
02 March 2022

The Workplace Event, previously known as The Facilities Event, has announced its conference agenda.

Keynote speakers include Geoff White, investigative journalist, author and broadcaster, and technology correspondent for Channel 4 News, Cally Beaton, Comedian, Writer and Business Mentor, and Jonny Jacobs, Finance Director EMEA at Starbucks and Trustee of the Mental Health Foundation.


Technology, The Future of Work and Wellbeing


Each day of the conference will take a different theme: technology, future of the workplace and wellbeing.

The Workplace Conference runs across each day of The Workplace Event which takes place from 5-7 April at the Birmingham NEC.

Influential speakers and high-level content have been specifically curated for each morning session to present transformational ideas, aid proactive conversations and deliver actionable takeaways in order for attendees to make positive changes and optimise their organisation’s workplace experience. Afternoon sessions take on a more practical feel with a workplace inspired hackathon, live podcast recording and workplace strategy competition across the three days.

Tristan Norman, Group Director at The Workplace Event, said “We are very proud of the exceptional speakers that are joining us to launch our first Workplace Event.

“Following a lengthy period of turbulence, it is critical we have the best-in-class speaker line up to help organisations forge ahead and create the best workplace experience possible as we enter a new era.”
