The engineer and CEO, Victoria Cerami, will explain how to achieve "acoustical privacy" in today's workplace, Weds., October 28 at the NeoCon East conference in Philadelphia. 

The main challenge today is the interest in more collaborative work settings -- a valuable goal, but one that always causes more unwanted noise. As a result, workers struggle to be effective, says Cerami, who heads the 90-person firm Cerami & Associates. 

Cerami will be joined by interior designer Jennifer Nye from Gensler to offer practical workplace solutions for sound privacy. Their design approach distinguishes among four distinct kinds of work: focus work, learning, collaboration and socialization. All are different and all demand unique approaches and levels of noise control. The two will also discuss today's worker expectations around privacy and noise.

When: Wednesday, Oct. 28, 2015, 1:00-2:00pm
