Key takeaways shared by Real Estate experts

Until recently, it was mainly internal drivers that influenced the choices concerning the expansion and location of organisations, predominantly based on needs and costs. Nowadays, it’s mostly external factors that drive the choice of location.

What is the impact of geopolitical risks like Brexit, economical struggles like import duties, or societal challenges like overheated labour markets and the shortage of talent? And what is the best way to demonstrate the added value of real estate management to C-level? What trends and metrics will transform the business? Which metrics and KPIs should be used to illustrate real estate performance?

To inspire business leaders and real estate professionals all over the world about how corporate real estate can contribute to the corporate business strategy, we are organising a podcast series. In this series, respected real estate experts will share their experience and key takeaways on market developments, how these affect organisations’ business strategies, and discuss trends and metrics, best practice on the alignment and execution of the corporate real estate strategy. The second podcast is available now!
