Please join Parlour and Monash Architecture for Rethinking Procurement, our next Light at the End of the Tunnel session, with Kate Fitzgerald and Geoff Hanmer.

There is a lot of talk about remaking the workplace, but can we also influence the way work is procured? What are the opportunities for non-traditional methods? How do we offer better professional services? How can architects stop servicing “wicked problems” and drive change? Kate and Geoff will canvas the issues in conversation with Justine Clark, Ilana Razbash and our highly active and engaged audience.

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.

Previous Light at the end of the tunnel recordings can be found on the Parlour website.

Mutual support, solidarity and camaraderie!
