WDC22 Keynote Speech
Creativity and Problem Solving in the Workplace

Kirk Vallis, Google
Global Creativity Expert & Trainer

The topic of creativity and problem solving skills has risen up the agenda over the past two years given the need for more critical and flexible thinking.  So are questions about what we use space for, how to optimise physical and virtual workspaces, how to attract and retain the best and brightest and similar.

In his role at Google, these issues are a big priority for Kirk.  He is also being asked to help other partner organisations in this area and challenge them on how they think about this right now.

We’re delighted that Kirk has agreed to take time out of his busy schedule to address our Workplace Design audience in person on stage at Rikli Conference Center.  An experience not to be missed!

Feedback from past attendees

You could tell that people were eager to learn

“ Simply put, this was a GREAT conference! You could easily tell that people were eager to learn; a few hands were always up, taking photos of slides. Myself included. 🙂 There is nothing sweeter than “stealing” a little piece of inspiration. As far as I know, this was one of the first regional Workplace Design conferences, which is surprising when you think of the amount of time we spend in offices. Keep up the great work, and see you next year! “
Luka Milković
Business Manager Hungary & AdriaticsSteelcase

Excellent topics and speakers

“ I was very pleased with the conference topics and how the speakers presented them in a simple and practical way. I was also positively surprised that so many agile, high-performance workplaces have already been designed in Slovenia. Congratulations! Gantner works on similar projects internationally and I learned many new concepts that I will be able to apply in my work. “
Gorazd Golob
Business Development Manager, GANTNER Electronic GmbH

A perfect blend of practice and theory

“ The Workplace Design Conference was a perfect blend of practical examples and theoretical insights into workplace strategies and design. Through presentations, networking, and a lively panel discussion we learned about the importance of creating a work environment that fosters employee engagement and innovation. Which is really essential for any company’s success. “
dr. Katarina Katja Mihelič
Associate Professor, University of Ljubljana, Faculty of Economics

I got a lot of great ideas

“ The link between psychology and physical spaces as explained to us by dr. Oseland was unknown to me, yet is completely logical. His presentations gave me a number of ideas on how to make our people at A1 feel better and more productive. A simple fact is that satisfaction with the work environment leads to more creativity and innovation. “
Ana Špec Brezovar
HR Expert, A1 Slovenija

We will definitely attend the next WDC 

“ At the Workplace Design conference, which I attended with my colleagues, we got lots of new ideas on how to improve our workspaces and make them user-friendlier. We are an international organization that conducts educational events in the field of public finance so it’s very important for us to provide a productive work and learning environment for our people and clients. We will definitely attend the conference next year. “
Cvetka Mozoli
Office Manager, Center of Excellence in Finance

Useful, thought-provoking presentations

“ Thank you very much for everything. The presentations were very useful and thought-provoking, and the organization of the conference was excellent. “
Peter Razpotnik
Finance Director, Loterija Slovenije d.d.
