Driving deeper understanding of the far-reaching impacts of intelligently considered light and lighting was the focus of a highly successful one-day thought leadership event at London’s iconic venue The Shard last month.
With a prestigious line-up of speakers, which included the current and past President of the CIBSE’s Society of Light & Lighting, Tamlite Lighting’s Let’s Talk About Light event played host to nearly 60 of the UK’s leading lighting designers and consulting engineers.
‘The value of learning’
Darren Taylor, National Specification and Projects Manager at Tamlite remarked – “There is no doubt that specifiers value opportunities to learn and share best practice, and with this one-day event, this is exactly what we have provided,” continues Darren. “The absence of a major UK lighting trade show has created a gap in the market for quality thought leadership events. The obvious solution was to host our own – and the feedback has been absolutely tremendous, which is so rewarding for the team involved.”
Speakers at Let’s Talk About Light included:
• Andrew Bissell – Ridge and Partners LLP and the current President of the CIBSE’s Society of Light and Lighting (SLL)
• Ruth Kelly Waskett from Hoare Lea who is a Past President of the SLL
• Dr Shelley James – TedX speaker and light for wellbeing expert
• Eduardo Oliveira MDes (Hons) – Tamlite’s own Product Developer
Attendee Farhad Rahim, Associate Director at Buro Happold (Lighting) commented: “Tamlite’s thought leadership event was inspiring and informative, with an engaging line-up of expert speakers. It also provided an opportunity to meet up with people in the same industry and share our thoughts and best practice on common issues such as the circular economy and sustainability, providing a lot of food for thought.”
Following the event, Kimberly Bartlett, Head of Lighting at Elementa Consulting commented: “Events like ‘Let’s Talk about Light’ are a great way to keep up to date with the latest lighting trends. The guest speakers covered a variety of important topics and were very enlightening and informative.”
Tamlite has confirmed that as a result of the success of this inaugural London-based event, it will host a similar day early 2023.
