Value Bombs

  • Quality will trump commodity – Jonathan Pearce
  • I believe the office has a major role to play in the platform of work – Caleb Parker
  • If the office going forward is simply a desk and a chair, that just isn't going to be good enough. There needs to be a compelling value proposition, a reason to come in, different types of spaces, maybe an environment that people are going to miss when they're not there – Jonathan Pearce
  • We've reached an unparalleled and unprecedented era of polarisation. Some companies leaning into a future of workplace choice and others hoping for a return to the old ways of working – Caleb Parker
  • I fundamentally believe that COVID has changed the job market forever – Dave Cairns
  • Everyone's heard of following the money, but we're trying to follow the people – Jonathan Pearce
  • Over the last 14 months, we've demonstrated that technology supports remote work – Jonathan Pearce
  • CBDs and those prime locations are going to be more important than ever – Dave Cairns
  • It all begins and ends with listening to the customer - Jonathan Pearce
  • People will be much more judicious with their time, and have interactions with a sense of purpose – Jonathan Pearce
  • It always baffles my brain that commercial real estate is the only sector that I can point to that doesn't currently solve all of their customers problems for them – Jonathan Pearce
