Keynote – Future-proofing property advisory: our vision, our story, our journey

There is no blueprint for success in the real estate market, but some firms are getting it right. What can you learn from their stories? Their innovation journey?  Three innovation leaders in the industry will share their stories with you.  Benchmark your firm against the achievements and experiences of three different property businesses, each looking at how to:
- embed cultural change and bring your people with you
- extract value from tech investments

Followed by joint Q&A.

10:40 am

Insight into innovation across the professional services  

You are looking beyond the real estate and property sector for innovation and inspiration so, to help you, we’ve asked two innovative leaders from accountancy and legal to provide insight into developments in their respective markets, specifically how they’ve dealt with two problems facing the property industry - managing change and making the most of data analytics.

Followed by joint Q&A.

11:40 am

Keynote – Getting insight from data

The key to an effective data strategy is understanding what it is possible for data to tell you, and what your business can learn from the data you hold.  International data expert Bernard Marr will inspire you with examples of what other companies/industries are doing with their own data and with open data sets. What questions can/should we be asking of data? What insight is it possible to glean?  How can we make the most of open data?  How can we aggregate our data? How can we find narratives in big data/adjacent data sets?

Speaker

  • Bernard Marr Internationally best-selling author, big data expert and strategic business & technology advisor
12:40 pm

Your right to reply: What can real estate advisory learn?

Our keynote speaker has given us a high-level view on data and making the most of it.  What takeaways are there for the property sector? How can the property sector use data to increase revenue and to attract/retain occupiers? Three CIO/CTOs will join our speaker on stage for a Q&A and discussion looking at how to apply these lessons and learnings to the real estate market. We’ll also take questions from the floor and via Sli.do.

1:00 pm

53: five challenges, five solutions, five minutes

Our 53sessions are designed to provide education for the property sector – these curated sessions are NOT SALES PITCHES. We aim to provide delegates with a genuinely objective overview of tech products that are specifically relevant to the challenges faced by the property sector.

In a series of sessions over the course of the Summit, we’ll bring you senior leaders from five tech vendors with a solution to one or more of the top areas of disruption in the property market.

In this first instalment in the series you’ll hear short presentations from two technology vendors.  In five minutes each, they’ll tell us:
- what challenge their product addresses
- how it works
- what it costs
- what it achieved for our client/s
- how we are incorporating compliance and security

Followed by joint Q&A.

Keynote panel discussion: Building the future property agency

The rise of online agents has not panned out as we expected, and the death of the traditional agency is much exaggerated.  Yet, clearly, we must find a way for people and technology to work together. How can the future property agency provide products and services that utilise both people and tech?  What are the opportunities in this hybrid environment? Each panellist will propose what they see as essential elements in the agency of the future.  We’ll vote on the proposals and work our way towards consensus on what the perfect future agency will look like.

2:00 pm

Chairman’s closing remarks followed by lunch and the close of conference
