The Future of Work: Time Management
Roundtable | Work.Life Hammersmith — For our members

Join us at Work.Life Hammersmith to discuss our perception of time in relation to the way we work, with Dr Helga Schmid from the Royal College of Art.

We are partnering with Work.Life to host a series of roundtables exploring the future of work, discussing how we might evolve practice and culture to feel better and work smarter. 

In our third session, hosted at Work.Life Hammersmith, we will be looking at the concept of time management, and discussing how we divide and categorise time in relation to the way we think about our work. As the work we do changes, and as technology and culture evolve, the traditional markers of clocking on and off are disappearing, and the boundaries between work and down-time are being blurred. 

How are these shifts affecting our experience of work? And how might we reimagine the way we organise and prioritise our time to healthier and happier ends?

We will be joined by Dr Helga Schmid, a design researcher, designer, curator and lecturer at the Royal College of Art, who will present some radical ideas for the reorganisation of time from her interdisciplinary research, which investigates the Embodiment of Time. We will use these ideas to inspire our discussion, and as a provocation to think differently about our own practices.

What we'll cover: 

— Prioritising, saying no and managing expectations for work-life balance 

— Thinking differently about how we stucture our work-time and down-time

— Connecting with our body clock and energy levels to boost focus and productivity

We'll be curating a group of 8 people to join the table, with relevant experiences and goals to share. Do drop us a line if you'd like to come along.
