The Workplace Cocktail Hour with Jo Sutherland and Esme Banks-Marr

Mark Eltringham is joined for a glass of red wine (or two) by Esme Banks-Marr of BVN architects and Jo Sutherland of Magenta. They discuss the joys of shared space, when people should tell AI to FO, the limits of workplace design, how to create a great culture wherever people work and much more.

This is the first in a new series which we hope to publish every week. Each episode will look at the major workplace related news stories from the last week or so. There’ll be no editing, the episode is recorded in real time at the end of each Thursday, so we’ll be talking straight and reacting to current news and events. Each week’s guest is invited to nominate a topic for discussion and a drink for us to share. Doesn’t have to be alcoholic (last week’s guest Chris  Moriarty is teetotal) but the intention is to talk like normal, informed humans over a shared drink, maybe even engage in a little lively, agreeable disagreement. At some point, we’ll be doing it in person.

If you’d like to take part in what we hope is an informed, intelligent and maybe challenging series, we’d love to hear from you.
