Registration and Breakfast


Presenter: David George, General Manager, Trimble

An Introduction to Sli Do - Live Question and Polling Tool
Presenter: Joe Poskie, Market Segment Manager, Trimble

Keynote: Bricks, Bytes and Behaviours – What are the key trends that are impacting where we work and what to do about it?
Presenter: Nigel Bunclark, Real Estate & Workplace Strategy & Transformation Leader

Nigel will be highlighting significant and developing trends that are impacting the built environments of organisations and their people.

In the context of the challenges and opportunities these issues present he will share observations and insights into how organisations and individuals are responding. His perspective is as a leader of the complete property life cycle from business strategy, through estates management, capital projects delivery and facilities management.

Some of these responses are being enabled by technology, others are being driven by people. Most of it has implications for property.

Lunch & Networking

Panel Discussion A: Real Estate Data Management – Technology Driving Performance Optimisation
Moderator: Daniel Smith, Business Development Manager, Trimble
Panel: Nigel Bunclark (Guest Speaker), Michael High (NIES), Simon Blenkiron (Trimble) and Stephanie Bastrup Cummins (KMD)

Building investments and operations are often quoted as one of the most significant costs to any business. Data driven decisions help optimise energy consumption, space management and use of space for a more cost-efficient, environmentally friendly real estate portfolio. Yet “big data” remains an unclear concept for many real estate professionals, including those who stand to gain tremendously from it right now.

In this session, a panel of industry leaders and technology experts will discuss the challenges of effective data creation, management and application; and the role of technology in delivering a positive, quantifiable business outcome. Topics to be covered include assessment and benchmarking, analysis and planning, preventative maintenance and continuous improvement.

Panel Discussion B: From the Boardwalk to the Boardroom – Transforming Visitor Experience

Moderator: Joe Harris, Business Development Manager, Trimble
Panel: Mike Hook (LMG), Andrew Vizor (BT Facilities), Greg Mace (Rapport) and TBD

There's an old saying, you never get a second chance to make a first impression. An organisation’s first opportunity to engage and interact with a client (or a potential new client) is often front of house in the reception area. A visitor’s experience at the front desk can reflect positively or negatively on the business as a whole.

In this session, a panel of industry leaders and technology experts will explore the concept of “Unrivalled Client Experience”, best practices in managing the flow of visitors, software and hardware integrations, and the future of client experience.

Coffee Break & Networking

Innovation Workshop:Mixing it up in the Building Digital Workplace - New Technology Tools for the Real Estate World
Presenters: Joe Poskie (Trimble), Simon Blenkiron (Trimble), Nancy Sanquist (Trimble) and Joe Harris (Trimble)

"Mixing It Up" is an unusual hands-on workshop which presents and demonstrates new hardware and software technologies introduced this year by technology companies in London, Boston and the Silicon Valley, Some were designed for real estate and FM, while others were designed for different industries and applied now to the market’s needs.
