Boston RBO ,

Great podcast about the future of the workplace

Maybe I’m biased because Mike’s guests include some brilliant minds I’ve had the privilege or working with or whom I’ve respected from afar. Or maybe I’m biased because I’ve had the pleasure of being a guest on Workplace Innovator.

But, biases or not, I love this podcast! The conversations are extremely relevant for workplace innovation, strategy, how real estate and the office is shifting post-pandemic and important industry factors that we’re all looking for more insight on. Each episode is not only relevant and thought provoking, but also light and easy to listen to because of Mike’s convivial personality and desire to connect on a personal level with his guests.

Workplace Innovator is a fantastic podcast and I highly recommend it to anyone who’s in or interested in the real estate industry or the future of work and our workplace.

Timely, relevant discussions on the future of place

Fantastic discussions between Mike Petrusky and others on the human condition and all things relevant to producing value in the workplace. These are my go-to podcasts when taking a break. Bucket list addition: sharing music and a quote with Mike.
