Insight by The Office Space supporting Sydney Women's Fund
In 2018, the Sydney Community Foundation’s Sydney Women's Fund's influential “Conversations for Change” event series merges with the popular Insight event program to give greater voice to contemporary issues relevant to all of us who live local in Sydney and beyond.
Insight proudly supports the Sydney Community Foundation (SCF) with full proceeds from ticket sales going directly to the SCF Women's Micro Business Incubator for disadvantaged women.
Now in its fourth year of production, Insight by The Office Space is a business talk series that brings together innovative entrepreneurs and business leaders to explore burgeoning topics and reveal the secrets of their success under a monthly theme.
Traversing all aspects of business across the fields of design, film, innovation, technology, finance and marketing, the sell-out program has featured speakers such as actor, Susie Porter; dual Archibald-winning artist, Del Kathryn Barton: Qantas industrial designer, David Caon; producer, Jan Chapman; graphic designer, Vince Frost and City of Sydney Counsellor, Jess Scully.
With 90 guest speakers over the last 3 years, there have been no shortage of inspiring, insightful, revealing and surprising moments.
The Insight 2018 Program
This February The Office Space re-commences its popular Insight program by exploring The Future of the Workplace, and how technology, design and sociology are all converging to create new iterations of the workplace.
Naomi Tosic, Co-founder of The Office Space, will host an expert panel of workplace innovators: Angela Ferguson, Managing Director of Futurespace, Stuart Munro, Change Director at Montlaur, and James Dellow, Chieftech at Digital Workplace Company.
The March Insight will explore #IWD2018 and Women in Business, interviewing two inspiring women and one brave man, from a diverse range of personal and business backgrounds.
With a flurry of women’s events all over Sydney this month, we wanted to get your attention by curating an extraordinary Insight panel:

The woman turning the monthly into a chance for positive social and environmental change, Modibodi founder Kristy Chong; and
The man who bravely presented The Future Laboratory’s Female Futures Forum to an arena of highly influential women in Melbourne and Sydney this February, Barry Mowszowski.
