Live 'Fireside' Chat

Featuring Oded Gal, Former Chief Product Officer, Zoom

Hosted by Eyal Lasker, CEO, Flexspace

August 29, 2023 | 1pm ET

For the last decade, the concept of “going to work” has undergone a heavy shift. But in the last few years, this evolution feels more like a tailspin with many companies moving away from traditional office environments and finding themselves ill-prepared for the challenges that often arise from that transition. And with the implementation of generative AI to automate many of the routine tasks and workflows that used to be done at the office so workers can be freed up to focus on higher-level tasks, the office as we knew it may not actually exist.

As much as experts are more than willing to battle the pros and cons of flexible work, companies need solutions.

Special guest Oded Gal, Former Chief Product Officer at Zoom, is uniquely positioned to offer valuable insights into these changes. Along with host Eyal Lasker, CEO, Flexspace, they’ll discuss these questions and more:

  • What are the benefits of the flexible office?
  • What specific challenges have companies faced when they’ve fired their office?
  • How does this shift impact the future of work?
  • What impact will AI technologies have?
