Connect: Age of Collaboration, a new event from Maverick AV Solutions, has announced John Underkoffler as the keynote speaker for its programme, featuring over 50 seminars and workshops on September 26-27 at the Design Museum, London.

The event, which has been created to bring together the leading players from across the AV and IT industries is designed to share thought leadership on the future of the workplace – people, process, space and technology.

John Underkoffler is the technological mind and drive behind Oblong Industries and science advisor to films including Minority Report, Ang Lee’s The Hulk and Iron Man.

He is the 2015 National Design Award winner for Interaction Design; examples of his work are now in the Smithsonian Archive.

Delegates will be offered thought-provoking collaborative sessions with vendors, product roadmap reveals, and unique and practical challenges as part of a programme of engaging workshops.

Speakers will include Rosie Haslem, director of architectural studio Spacelab, who will explore fascinating case-studies on the use of ‘attractors’ to maximise workplace productivity, while Dr Harriet Shortt from the University of West England will illuminate the importance of ‘in-between’ spaces – the corridors, hallways and lifts which play a critical role in collaborative work.

Further industry and HR professionals will speak on subjects such as the needs of a Millennial workforce and the journey towards technological interoperability.

Microsoft, Dell and Cisco are the key partners in the event, providing workplace and platform insights and inspiration. Logitech, Zoom and Condeco are also confirmed as participating partners, offering future-forecasts as well as practical guidance.
