Significant global change is driving us toward increased connectedness and interdependencies across cultures and continents, impacting the individual, the corporation and the Corporate Real Estate (CRE) industry as a whole. People are connecting and creating in new ways, forming new alliances, expanding their personal scope and reach, with new tools and in new environments.
As the role of the ‘connected culture’ continues to grow on a global level, how can CRE keep pace? How do we recognize and embrace socially and economically sound strategies, technologies and space that will propel and foster our most valued, yet increasingly complex relationships – from CRE to the C-suite, partner to partner, client to customer, locations to business, region to region, workplace to workstyle? What are the tools, knowledge and competencies CRE must bring to the table in a growing environment of fluid real estate – where work is no longer a fixed space, but flexible and diverse?
In the second half of 2011, CoreNet Global will continue the discussion addressing these underlying global influences and their impact on all aspects of corporate real estate. The dynamics of our new social reality propel us forward, providing opportunities to meet new the challenges facing our industry by connecting, creating and building the relationships we need for success.
