Missed an Insight event this year? Catch up with a summary of our 2018 program.
We are living in an age of unprecedented disruption, with technology rewriting howwe work, whowe work with, and wherewe work. Inextricably linked with the hotbed topic of ‘The Future of Work’, is ‘The Future of the Workplace’. No longer bound by 9-5 work days, or a battery of office cubicles, today’s emerging workplaces are an exciting combination of efficiency, positive culture, and creativity.
In February The Office Space re-commenced its popular Insight program by exploring The Future of the Workplace, and how technology, design and sociology are all converging to create new iterations of the workplace with an expert panel of workplace innovators:
The 21st century has been coined “the female century” . For the first time in history, we see the balance of power significantly shifting. Never in history have women been closer to true equality in both public and private life.
There has been so much important conversation around women, by both men and women, especially with the Trump marches of last year and this year’s #timesup and #metoo movements. This year Insight explored how the rules are changing for working women, and the impact on family, economy, and society with an extraordinary Insight panel:
In today’s highly-competitive, omni-channel, rapidly-evolving marketplace, how do you stand out from the crowd? To survive and thrive, brands must find new ways to cut through the noise to connect with their audiences.
In April, Insight has gathered three gurus across marketing, communications, and strategic design to reveal the critical components for defining your message, engaging your tribe, remaining relevant, and connecting across multiple touch points.
Each year our Insight program focuses in on the Film industry, both a reflection of our love for all things cinema but as a nod to the proud history of the Paramount House building within which we reside.
This month we are thrilled to introduce our Insight cast as an Actor, a Director, and a Producer take the stage to discuss their individual career arc as well as the broader Australian film industry. We will also be focusing on the changing nature of film – as we embrace diversity, shame lecherous producers, and deal with important themes and stories.
Creative pairings can be dynamic and diabolical. Some duos will marry up mismatched skillsets to create a greater whole, others will spur each other on and create regular competition and inspiration for one half to work harder than the next. This month, we’re exploring creative compatibility: the synergy and syncopation of different beats, working together, striking a balance, and collaborating with extraordinary results.
Our panel unlocked the power of two with a double up of Australia’s most creative sibling design pairings:
Love it or loath it, money makes the world go round. From household budgets to the company profit and loss balancing act, the bottom line is the final word in our personal and professional success.
Insight returned in July to kick off the New Financial Year with a look at financial intelligence. With a panel of money experts, we looked at how wise people invest, approach budgeting, and think about money:
To be successful, it is now almost mandatory for a business to not just participate in social media, but to have a sophisticated and strategic approach. Social media marketing allows businesses to increase awareness, drive sales leads, retain customers and nurture a loyalty consumer base, and communicate directly with customers.
In August we brought together an Influencer, an online editor, and a digital marketing lecturer to help us harness the power of social media for our businesses:
This month, in conjunction with Right Angle Studioand as part of the Sydney Architecture Festival, Insight considered the role of architects and an army of data scientists, placemakers, urban planners, sustainability experts and policy makers to keep our cities connected, considered, and liveable.
Helping us to understand the role of design, planning and good policy in managing the ebbs and flows of a city in flux are our panel guests:
Despite our wealth of natural and economic resources, Australia’s overall response to climate change is appalling. The Climate Change PerformanceIndexhas ranked us 57 out of 60 countries, and rated China’s climate efforts as higher than Australia’s.
Thankfully, large-scale corporate initiatives, standout sustainability ambassadors, and a groundswell of grass roots activists are embracing transformation and taking up the cause. This month Insight featured three outstanding sustainability crusaders making waves for a better future:
For the first time in history, five generations will soon be working side by side. Each group has its own distinct characteristics, values, and attitudes toward work, which create both challenges and opportunities.
This November The Office Space looked at the Multigenerational Workplace, inviting a Millennial, a Gen’Xer and a Pre-Baby Boomer (who is also a generational expert) to take the stage and discuss how they see the world and how they interact within the workplace:
Insight returns in 2019 to bring you more successful and inspiring entrepreneurs or business mavericks, and more great themes spanning commerce, design, art and technology.Thank you for your support of our program.
