The priority of real estate industry players is now to manage risk as new revenue streams open up, helped by new drivers including:

• Evolving new technology and human behaviour, which is transforming the nature of real estate as an investment, and as a product or service we use as consumers.

• People centricity as a key factor for growing a successful business.

• High energy prices, climate change and government regulation are already pushing sustainability up the real estate agenda

• The need for investors and owners to improve asset performance and manage the broader range of risks emerging.

Day 4 - Future Generations in Business

- Investing in Tomorrow`s Leaders Today

How able to get by with just solving problems and conflicts. They will have to be able to pivot problems—to turn negative situations into advantages and opportunities.

How to be able to connect the dots between the past and the present as they look to the future.

How to look at the world through the eyes of others, especially where there are perceived differences or disagreements, and collaborate across communities. Doing so will help develop the kind of positive engagement that defuses tense situations and builds relationships.

How to be able to “fail forward”—to shift from traditional problem-solving approaches to find the value in each effort and innovation regardless of the outcome. Every experience has something to teach us when we make it less about failure and more about innovation and creativity.
