The future of London’s Open Workspaces

Friday 11 March 2016

08:30-09:30 (Registration from 08:00)

NLA, The Building Centre, 26 Store Street, London WC1E 7BT

Open Workspaces, that is incubators, coworking, artist and maker spaces, contribute vastly, not only to local communities, but to London’s economic diversity and future growth. But are we doing enough to support these spaces? What is their value within development, and can they address wider issues on the affordability and availability of space for small businesses?

Research being undertaken by IPPR is exploring the value of open workspaces to businesses and to the local and wider area. Join us for this free NLA breakfast talk, which will bring together developers, planners, and discuss workspace providers’ future Agenda.

Speakers include Toggle

Sue Terpilowski, Chairman, London Policy Unit, Federation of Small Businesses
James Friedenthal, Head of Corporate Development, Workspace
Sara Turnbull, CEO, Bootstrap Company  
Clare McNeil, Associate Director, IPPR
Michael Owens, Commercial Director, Bow Arts Trust

Matthew Blades, Business & Inward Investment Delivery Lead, LB Lambeth
