The next Frost* event for creatives in the studio’s deFrost* talks series is all about a new way to work. It will discuss how Australian workplaces are being transformed by the concept of activity based working.
Neill Johanson, a principal at interior design consultancy, Davenport Campbell, which specialises in activity based working, will address an audience of 50 guests at this month’s evening lecture.
Activity based working is an idea the allows trust, self-leadership and high performance to come into play - apparently with clear benefits to the organisations that have adopted this new approach, particularly in the way they engage with their people, clients and community.
Johanson has just completed the Commonwealth Bank of Australia’s new Sydney headquarters in conjunction with Frost*, as well as Bankwest’s HQ in Perth. At the talk, he’ll share his understanding of activity based working and how this idea comes to life for the CBA. Johanson will look in detail at the recent work on Commonwealth Bank Place, the largest and most recent Activity Based Working project in the world.
“The CBA development has been one of Sydney’s most significant corporate projects in recent times and there’s been a great deal of interest from many quarters” said Frost. “This event will be a great opportunity to look at the development in some depth and explore the philosophies underpinning the work, that make it ground breaking. It was an incredibly inspiring project to be involved with.”
Frost* has been hosting the thought leadership events for a number of years. The events are designed to stimulate creative thinking and align with Frost’s philosophy of promoting ‘Inspiring Ideas to Life’.
The next deFrost* talk will be held 6pm on Thursday 16 August, at the Frost* studio in Surry Hills.
