03. Anetta Pizag on Creating Workspaces That Inspire Creativity and High Performance

It doesn’t take an expert to realise how our workspace can affect our energy, creativity and all-round mood. But with the help of an expert we can turn these spaces into places that bring out our best.

Spaces. They influence every part of our lives – our health, wealth and happiness. Each week on the Spaces podcast, Sam Buckby shares the insights of leading building and design experts to help make our buildings smarter and create healthier and happier spaces.

Anetta Pizag is that expert. I like to think of her as the ‘workspace whisperer’. As a workspace design specialist, consultant and author, Anetta has shown dozens of businesses of all types and sizes how to bring out the best in their people through effective workspace design.
