We were joined alongside Forsite for what was a lively discussion on the ever-changing role of a property management company (how many hats they actually wear?!), what tenants now expect from their buildings and how technology will be an integral part to keeping people safe & happy.
We have spent the last 5 years turning office spaces into a home like experience, now, in the space of a few months, we need to think how homes can become “offices” or suitable places to work (sound proof rooms to keep kids in with a vending machine?). Our panellists created an interesting view point on what tech, tools and talent is needed to thrive and survive.
