Lectures and workshops

Since 2012, we have built up our knowledge of the work environment and new ways of working, partly with our involvement in research and partly in the assignments we have carried out. We often convey this knowledge through lectures and workshops. Our efforts can be carried out physically, digitally and hybrid.

Are you facing an upcoming change to your office and working methods? Are you wondering how you can change your work environment to better support your business?  Our lectures can contribute with both inspiration and knowledge.

The knowledge we communicate during our lectures is based on relevant research findings and proven experience. We see it as part of our mission to convey a nuanced picture of work, enabling you to make conscious choices while minimising potential risks and maximising opportunities. Here you can read about the different modules that can be included in our lectures. Depending on your needs, we’ll put together content that is relevant to your gathering.

  1. Office types and different ways of working

    Cell offices, open-plan, activity-based offices and hybrid working methods  – what are the differences and what opportunities and limitations do each solution entail?

  2. Decades of research - how we are affected by different types of offices and working methods

    During this lecture, we present current research findings linked to how different types of offices and working methods affect employees’ health and productivity. What does the research tell us about what we need to focus on in order to achieve a functioning office design and way of working? How do we handle the challenges associated with each design and how do we realise the opportunities?

  3. Lead the change to a new way of working

    Change is a natural part of our lives. Despite this fact, it is common for changes in office layouts and working methods to arouse a lot of uncertain thoughts and feelings. During this lecture, we cover the common reactions to change and discuss how you can lead a successful transition to a new way of working.

  4. How the brain is affected by different types of offices and working methods

    People have a limited capacity for handling information. A well-functioning environment provides the conditions for people to maximise their abilities. During this lecture, we discuss how work environments should be created to offer each individual the support he or she needs. We also touch on what different office layouts and ways of working demand of the individual.

  5. Flexible, yes - but how do we create an efficient work environment for teams and project-based work?

    Agile offices and working methods are on the rise. But how do we create a work environment that supports employees who work in an agile way? And how does this differ from creating good conditions to work on projects?

  6. Increased flexibility and trust

    A trust-oriented leadership usually facilitates a flexible way of working. But a trust-oriented leadership demands a highly present leadership from which each individual receives the support he or she needs to successfully carry out their tasks. During this lecture, we discuss what leadership means and define concepts such as trust-friendly and trustworthy.

  7. Individual differences in personality and cognition

    Personality is often highlighted as an important factor in how we thrive and perform within different types of offices and working methods. But is this true? How strong of a role does personality play in relation to the demands of our work relative to our output?



Depending on where you are in your transition, we have a selection of workshops to support you. Our workshops can help at the start with setting the framework for the project, supporting you in formulating the project’s vision and goals, or supporting employees to reflect on their way of working and how the future office can function. We always tailor our workshops to you and your organisation. Here we present a selection of the workshops we are usually hired to carry out.

  1. Define your 'why'

    “He who has a why to live for can bear almost any how,” philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche once said. And quite rightly, a strong vision that is rooted in the company’s challenges and opportunities can give stability to the project and facilitate change for employees. During this workshop, we support your management team or steering group to develop your vision and fill the concepts with relevant content.

  2. How to create participation!

    Creating participation in projects related to changing working methods is a key success factor. Participation gives employees better insight and creates predictability, but above all, it gives the project group the opportunity to understand the needs of the business and undo knots that hinder the organisation’s efficiency. In this workshop, we go through your intended process and discuss how and around what we can create participation.

  3. My Day at Work

    During this workshop, employees get the opportunity to get acquainted with different types of work areas that often appear in a flexible office. Then they get the opportunity to choose which areas they prefer for each activity or task. This workshop not only gives employees an understanding of how the new office can be used, but also gives the project team an insight into employee preferences.

  4. We have our new way of working - which activities suit which areas?

    Before the transition to the new way of working, it is wise to make a comprehensive presentation of how the physical, digital, organisational and social work environments are intended to work. During this workshop, we meet the employees and go through the new way of working, and present how it can help them succeed in their assignments.

  5. Opportunities and risks in the project and the upcoming change

    It is possible for the workplace strategy to not have focused on risks and opportunities involved in the project. Risks can be about conditions related to change management or the project’s ability to stick to a schedule and budget. During this workshop, we go through risks and opportunities with a focus on how they can be managed or realised. This workshop is usually held with the project team.

Here's how it looks!

What people say

Thanks to Dr. Seddigh. An inspiring and well-read lecturer!

Aram delivered in an easy-to-understand, stripped back way with a lot of humour. He both confirmed and challenged all of us who were present.

I also had the pleasure of handling the booking with Aram and the collaboration went perfectly. Many thanks!
