Ruth Slavid talks architecture

A new profession?

Posted in office by ruthslavid on October 23, 2009

A new professional group launched last night, the Workplace Consulting Organisation. Its members, who come from a range of disciplines, including architecture and design, psychology, technology and HR, want to provide a standard that keeps out charlatans and bandwagon jumpers. Especially in recession, people from many other disciplines are ‘offering’ this service, with little expertise.

Frank Duffy, the founder of DEGW, was at the launch, and many of those present had previously worked for him. Jeremy Myerson, professor at the Royal College of Art and expert on offices, gave an entertaining introductory talk in which he suggested that WCO should be renamed FED – Former Employees of DEGW.
