We’re excited to announce the full programme of speakers for Connect – Age of Collaboration, the brand new event on the future of workplace collaboration, curated and staged by Maverick AV Solutions.

Live on the 26th and 27th September, Connect – Age of Collaboration will welcome industry speakers from across the globe to discuss, explore and provoke thought about the workplace of the future.

In addition to previously announced keynotes led by acclaimed tech broadcaster Spencer Kelly and Hollywood futurist John Underkoffler, we will be hearing from a line-up of top calibre speakers from partners including Microsoft, Dell, Cisco, Logitech, Condeco, Barco and Zoom.

CIO and Head of Workplace Services at Logitech Massimo Rapparini will be outlining his vision of the future of videoconferencing, while Peter Otto, Director of Product Strategy and Design at Condeco, will examine how to create a work culture that fosters innovation and creativity.

Zoom’s Mike Adam will be forecasting the end of bad meetings, and Craig Decker from Cisco will provide some fascinating predictions about the future of Cloud working.

Maverick has also invited speakers from the worlds of design, human resources, architecture and academia to lend their perspectives on the future of work.  Dr Harriet Shortt, Associate Professor in Organisational Studies at the Bristol Business School, will take an image-led look at how we create a workplace identity in the era of thought-pods and hot desking, while Barry Flack, HR influencer, will explore how it feels to be managed by an algorithm.

Vice President Global of Maverick AV Solutions, Jon Sidwick commented

“This event is bringing together a mixture of fascinating speakers from different kinds of businesses to learn and explore the future of collaboration, a must-visit for those seeking a competitive edge in our industry.”
