The Team Around the Table Podcast

There's a better way to outsource corporate real estate—and it starts with choosing the right team.

Corporate real estate (CRE) has changed. Occupiers are no longer satisfied with standard solutions; they need a team of critical thinkers—visionaries and innovators, who are creative, entrepreneurial, and strategic —who invest the time to unravel the complexities of each organization, ask the hard questions, and focus on what will truly move the needle for their business.

Business leaders will always prioritize cost, but today they're also committed to culture and carbon footprint. They want successful outcomes, but they also seek transparency, flexibility, and true partnership.

The Team Around the Table podcast opens a new conversation about how having the right team—with the right qualities, skills, and insights—can help today’s business leaders navigate the complexities of CRE and make a meaningful impact for their organizations.

We’ll introduce you to a new kind of partnership in corporate real estate—where talent, compatibility and collaboration come together to drive innovation and optimal results.
