10:30    Can You Go Too Far When Untethering People from their Desks? - Panel Discussion

Whilst there has been considerable movement on agile working within the legal sector - the desk still features as the key working space - will this ever change? If Friday has become the new Saturday (working from home on a Friday continues to be the most popular day of the week) how can you plan/predict/utilise the demands on space and resources most effectively? Therefore, how far is too far giving people the freedom to choose the way they work? When does this become at odds with the experience of a traditional LLP work environment? 

Nick Brook Former Head of Facilities Pinsent Masons

Nigel Bunclark Director of Property Transformation Competition & Markets Authority

11:10    Morning refreshments

11:40    The Intelligent Building - Panel session (40 mins)

What is a Smart building? Can we ever truly create a frictionless way to explore and interact with the built environment especially as law firms, and others, are under ever greater scrutiny on storage of personal data. While the demands for greater security curtail the full adoption of the utilisation of biometrics such as finger-prints, retina and face recognition to access secure areas?
