Listen in to the Last Mile conversation with Georgia Singleton about the benefits of sponsorship for all involved, and the joy of supporting people’s talent and giving them opportunity.

If somebody wants to do something, that is important, and I can actually give them a voice. So we test people out and then let them go. It’s like getting on a bike – you hold them, ride with them, you know, hold the back seat, and then let them go.

Georgia discusses the many personal and professional rewards sponsorship can bestow on both the sponsor and sponsee, and the benefits that fostering a culture of sponsorship and advocacy can bring to a practice as a whole. 

Georgia Singleton is a Director, Global Leader – Education & Science of Woods Bagot. Considering the impact of architecture on user experience, she is interested in understanding how the workplace environment can affect the behaviour of researchers and practitioners within health precincts and using that information to inform the way space is configured. Having worked on a diverse range and scale of architectural and interiors focused projects, Georgia seeks to push traditional building and fit-out typologies with dynamic, highly integrated and research-driven solutions. 

The Last Mile is an initiative of the Champions of Change Architecture Group Sponsorship Action Group.
