True to our ’10 years’ theme, Graeme will help us sharpen our gaze into the future of hotel design as we contemplate a paradigm shift in work culture which has big implications on the interior and product design industries. Hotel interior design as we know it is set to be transformed over the next decade as the disruptive forces of Workplace Automation, Demographics (travellers are getting older), the Environment and Smart Devices converge to impact on our industry: how we live, work, interact and connect with each other. Graeme’s mission is to prepare industry leaders for such change so they can guide their organisations more confidently through these shifting tides without losing too many overboard.
