We are thrilled to have Natalie Slessor – Head of Customer Futures for Lendlease as a special guest to Episode 7 of our FreeThinking podcast. Natalie is one of Australia’s few social psychologists specialising in the built environment – with a razor sharp focus on the future of living, leisure and work. She talks about how great place-making should start with the ending, the value of a cultural risk assessment, and how Silicon Valley offers inspiration to the city as the ultimate perpetual field test.
