Good for You, Good for the City with Scott Cain

What would employee health, business performance and our cities be like if our employees chose to run or even cycle to work and left the car and public transport behind? One big challenge though is that the infrastructure to be able to shower and change has not been easily accessible. Most companies also have not had showers in their buildings. This may be about to change! Scott Cain is the founder and CEO of RunFriendly (www.runfriendly.com). He is an Honorary Senior Research Fellow at UCL Bartlett, in the Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis, and holds advisory roles with Faculty.ai (Artificial Intelligence and machine learning), PSYT, PAN Studio and Centric Lab. Previously Scott was Chief Business Officer and Executive Director at the Future Cities Catapult, a world-leading urban innovation centre. Join us as we discuss executive health, how organizations can support their employees in getting healthier and more productive and the benefits to our cities.
