Welcome to the Future Cities Series Launch in collaboration with TLT!

How does urban development and greening cities tie into wellbeing?

What trends can we use to our advantage to support wellbeing in our cities?

How are cities adapting and what does that mean for developers?

What does a healthy city look like right now and what will it look like in the future?

Join us for this hybrid breakfast event kindly sponsored by TLT with speakers from St Monica Trust, Alec French Architects, Redcliffe and Temple Bid, and TLT to discuss the relationship between wellbeing, social value and future cities.


Expect a 4-part series between September-December discussing essential trends that play a part in the city of the future.

Alex Holsgrove Jones, Senior Knowledge Lawyer, TLT

Alexandra is a senior knowledge lawyer in the Real Estate Group. She specialises in commercial property law and deals with precedents, training, complex research, and both internal and client briefings. Alexandra has previously acted for land owners on large scale developments, and on behalf of both landlords and tenants in lease acquisitions, disposals and general estate management work.


Nigel Dyke became a Director of Alec French Architects in 2002. He has been responsible for a number of significant projects in Bristol including refurbishment of City Hall, Quakers Friars and Being Brunel for SS Great Britain Trust. He was also involved with the refurbishment of the Future Leap HQ. He has a long standing interest in the importance of placemaking in creating good architecture which benefits the wider community in which a particular building is located. This interest extends to the role of cities which has been brought into focus as a result of the pandemic.


Naomi Stone, Reward and Engagement Manager, St Monica Trust

With over twenty years’ experience as a Human Resources practitioner, Naomi’s ethos is to apply psychological evidence to engage and motivate teams and individuals at work. Using the principles of positive psychology, Naomi’s work elicits behavioural change and aims to improve people’s working lives.

Naomi’s specialism is biophilia (the human-nature connection) relating to well-being at work and workplace cultures. Her post-graduate studies tell us that our innate connection with nature can help us to address the mismatch between the way we need to live and work as human beings and the reality. Naomi’s career spans the legal, charity, logistics and academic sectors.


Tom Swithinbank, Project Manager, BID

Tom manages Bristol Business Improvement District’s (BIDs) Sustainability and Public Realm projects. The Bristol BIDs consist of Bristol City Centre BID, Redcliffe & Temple BID and Broadmead BID. Tom’s work includes projects to support Bristol’s businesses with their sustainability work as well as delivering small and large public realm improvements.

This work commenced in June 2021 and has already seen over 400 bikes serviced, the publication of a Green Infrastructure Improvement Plan, the launch of the Bring Your Own Lunchbox campaign and the transformation of Marlborough Hill Steps.
