Claudia Hamm

Claudia Hamm
Head of Workplace Strategy EMEA, JLL

Claudia Hamm is the Head of Workplace Strategy EMEA for JLL and chair of its Global Workplace Board. Her responsibilities include coaching and enabling the firm’s rapidly growing Workplace & Change Management practice.

Claudia has over 15 years of experience in business development, organisational change and communications, working across the US, UK and Germany. She is particularly interested in the behavioural and leadership changes required to create smarter organisations, and in how the appropriate physical, virtual and emotional environment can enhance employee productivity and accelerate future business success.

At the heart of that interest is how, thanks to today's technological advances, we can now truly give people the opportunity to combine an executive career with a fulfilling family life. She is a firm believer in agile, non-territorial working, based on a more outcome-oriented and connected work philosophy. It's a philosophy that she puts into practice herself: no office or desk to call her own or put family pictures on, but rarely ever missing a soccer game or theatre performance.

We will bring together some of the biggest and brightest names to debate, discuss and divulge the latest thinking on the Future of Work and the Workplace. Over 150 senior professionals from real estate, facilities, technology, and executive management, architecture, design and other professional advisors will attend to hear the very best from thought leaders and share best practice and expertise. We believe that work is shaped by the intersection between HR/people, technology and space/property. Only by colliding ideas between these three groups will innovation emerge – this is the vision behind WORKTECH – a forum that brings together these key areas. It is for this reason that we place our event in innovative and contemporary settings.
