As businesses face new challenges and opportunities stemming from geopolitical uncertainty, technological advances and the changing future of workplace practices, CEO of JLL, Christian Ulbrich, sits down with Evan Davis to discuss how his company is adapting to successfully operate in the current global climate.
Following the 2008 global financial crash, real estate evolved as a distinct category in investment opportunities. However the changing nature of work and technology has put increasing pressure on the sector.
How can companies with fixed assets – such as real estate – innovate to capitalize on the opportunities technology has created through the so called ‘fourth industrial revolution’? How has government and consumer pressure for transparent working practices and sustainability changed the way JLL operates? And what impact has wider geopolitical changes, such as Brexit, had on the company?
The Corporate Leaders Series provides an opportunity for business leaders to discuss political, economic and social issues they consider important to businesses working in an international context.
