Thursday 11 September 2014
PricewaterhouseCoopers, Level 15, 125 St. Georges Terrace, Perth
Morning Tea will be served at the beginning of the event and light refreshments at the conclusion

When PwC moved from the QV1 building to Brookfield Place they embarked on a journey to transition from a conventional office layout to the more innovative activity based working design. Join CitySwitch and listen to PwC discuss and reflect upon the process they went through and gain insight into the organisation’s change management success and find out how this approach has improved energy efficiency, enhanced wider sustainable outcomes and defined a new workplace standard.


City of Perth
The City of Perth will introduce several workshops and programs that are being offered from water to energy and discuss how the CitySwitch program is maturing and developing to help facilitate the City’s growth and resilience.

The Deputy Lord Mayor Cr Rob Butler will also present Commitment Certificates to new signatories.

Jean Melhuish-Hill, PwC
Jean Melhuish-Hill has been with PwC for 35 years in a variety of management and facilities related roles. She is currently the Senior Facilities Manager of the Perth office and has undertaken a number of fitouts in both conventional layout and more recently the new Perth activity based working tenancy.  Prior to moving to Perth, Jean was responsible for the Adelaide practice and incorporation of Canberra to her portfolio followed her move to the west.  From 2012 her sole focus was the new Perth fitout which was the first of this kind within PwC globally. Jean is currently working with her colleagues in Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney who will all move into an ABW environment within the next 2 years.
