Thoughts, ideas and inspiration from Antony Slumbers
A Year of Learning at the Real Innovation Academy
The four ‘essentials’ of #FutureProofRealEstate - how we discovered that the success of every real estate asset class requires the same four things.
This isn’t an acceleration, it’s a revolution
The office real estate industry is set to be transformed.
In the world of work and the workplace there is a fundamental misunderstanding going on. Many people are talking about changes to how we work, post pandemic, as being merely an acceleration of trends that were already underway. They are not. In fact, we are witnessing the start of a revolution that will utterly transform the dynamics of the industry.
The Redundancy of Real Estate - and how to avoid it.
Why the real estate industry needs to stop kidding itself about what is possible with #NoOffice.
Talent and the Real Estate Company of the Future
Every company needs talented, skilled people. Over the years companies try to employ more and more talented, skilled people, that fit their requirements, business model and working practices. They continually optimise for the market they are in, particularly the larger ones. They become more and more efficient, more and more ‘Six Sigma’ - lean, mean business machines. And it works. Or at least it does right up until the moment it does not.
