Join the Birmingham Architectural Architectural Association on October 20th, 5pm for “Resilience” a brand new series that hears from special guest speakers from across the world.
This new series of talks will hear from business and industry leaders as they discuss how they are working to overcome the challenges they face daily. Sharing knowledge and explaining unique tactics being used to out manoeuvre and adapt to a world wide pandemic. With economic impacts that that are widely predicted to be worse than the 2008 crash, our Resilience series will help you to navigate this global pandemic and economic storm.
The Birmingham Architectural Association will be talking with David Hunter, Chairman of Stride Treglown – an architectural practice of over 300 people with 9 UK offices.
Having been with Stride Treglown since 1987, David worked as an architect across a wide range of projects. Now chairman, he has led Stride Treglown’s employee ownership journey and has established the practice as a place where people want to carve their careers.
David puts people and the culture of the practice at the heart of his approach. His focus on health, wellbeing and flexible working led to Stride Treglown becoming the first UK business to receive an ‘Excellent’ rating across all aspects of the Workplace Wellbeing Charter.
Pre-pandemic, Stride Treglown had started to put in place several business change projects to improve working environments, increase efficiencies, and build everyday resilience. Their most notable achievement being the creation of a reliable, scalable homeworking system as well as an Agile and Flexible Working Policy – both investments which would ultimately allow the practice to weather the covid-storm.
In a world of political, economic and social flux, David believes it is important now more than ever to innovate and invest in the future. Working on the basis that you should never waste a good crisis, what lies ahead for Stride Treglown?
