Learning Theatre - Transparency in the Service Space in Africa

Given the increasing trend of outsourcing and the consolidation in the services sector, the blurred lines between internal and the external supply chain teams have never been more prominent. Whilst there are controls in terms of transparency and real estate advice provided in the more developed markets, there are potentially significant conflicts in emerging markets. This is due to numerous factors ranging from impartiality, to lack of independence between landlord and advisor, and insufficient experienced talent. The potential lack of transparency effects many aspects of real estate, but none more so that the outsourcing and resilience risk associated. This panel discussion will investigate the subject of transparency in emerging markets and how resilience will play a significant role moving forward.

Key Takeaways:

  • Examine conflicts and problems due to lack of transparency in emerging markets.
  • Discuss how to reduce risk and increase resilience.
