Please join Parlour and Monash Architecture for our Light at the End of the Tunnel session on the how and why of flexible work with Brian Clohessy in conversation with Justine Clark.

There is an enormous and increasing interest in flexibility, which has been amplified by experiences of working in the pandemic. Almost ALL of the respondents (97%) to the recent Work & Wellbeing survey see an opportunity to improve workplaces and work cultures – and the thing people wanted most was more flexibility.

This week we’ll talk to Brian Clohessy, Head of People and Character at BVN, about the systems put in place before the pandemic, what it has meant during COVID, and how and why flex matters.

See you online for an informal yet informative Q&A session.


Light at the End of the Tunnel is a Q & A event series, happening every Friday lunchtime AEST, for as long as we all need it. Hosted by Parlour and Monash Architecture this online talk series is to help our communities navigate the world of work, the futures of the profession and paths forward in the midst of the pandemic.

Each week one or two speakers will be online to answer our questions and yours on a wide range of topics – from the nitty gritty of how to negotiate, polishing up your CV and portfolio, and what to do with an unexpected career break, to broader speculations about the kind of profession we want and need, and how we might best position the discipline for the future.

These will be informal, interactive sessions aimed at equipping the Parlour communities for the path ahead, and encouraging the to actively participate in making the future of our profession.

In the meantime, watch Naomi and Justine chat about the idea, and do get in touch if there are topics you would like covered.

Mutual support, solidarity and camaraderie!
