Café WRK - exploring casual working in London

Friday 13 January 2017


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

Free event - click here to register Go!

Join us for our final 'Working Through Lunch' talk as we explore the nature, location and variety of casual workspaces in London.

With trends showing increasing use of cafes, hotel lobbies and public realm by freelancers and other workers, we explore the challenges and opportunities associated with this contemporary issue. Should restaurants provide Wi-Fi for all customers? Should cafés restrict access to electricity outputs? Can hotels embrace and capitalise from the use of lobbies as casual workspaces? 

The ‘Working through Lunch’ talks will take place throughout October and November. Join us for a series of free, exciting, quick-fire talks, focusing on some of the finer detail and more practical aspects of this year’s NLA WRK / LDN Insight Study.
