    Shockingly, only 32% of a person's typical work day is spent doing work,, with interruptions costing US businesses $588 Billion annually.

    Organizations that create ways for employees to feel (and be!) more productive at the office than at home, can elevate the office to be their employees' preferred place to work. When people are more productive during the work day, not only do they stress less and enjoy greater work-life balance, but they also make a more meaningful contribution in the work that they do. It’s a win-win for everyone.During her inspiring and entertaining keynote, world-renowned futurist Nikki Greenberg will talk about the new relationship between office-space, cyber-space, and cognitive-space. Here she will question the status-quo while showcasing workplaces experiments that are occurring around the world that have had measurable successes for workers’ wellbeing, project outcomes, and team cohesiveness..
