SIGN UP for a look into the Future.
Best half day conference I have attended.
Please pass on my sincere thanks for what was an incredibly insightful and relevant morning. In my view the speakers could not have been more on the point in addressing the challenges facing corporate real estate today.
This was a brilliant event, well organised, diverse and interesting speakers, and fantastically facilitated by Juliette. Can't wait for the next one. Thank you for the invite.
