Don’t miss out: Hear from Standard Chartered Bank’s Regional Head of Workplace and EQ Lab's Chief Cognitive Officer on how to rethink the workplace for a post-pandemic world

COVID-19 has completely transformed the way companies view their office, “severing employees’ attachments to the workplace”, and forcing many to question whether “offices are quite as core now” (FT, April 2021).

Whether you’re a CRE developer, asset owner, or landlord, join us for a provocative conversation on how you can capitalize on the post-pandemic opportunity to attract and retain corporate tenants. 

It's time to usher in a new era of work.

And to support this, we are proud to announce our upcoming online Fireside Chat: Cracking the Tenant Code.

Details as follows:

Date: 16 June 2021 (Wed)

Time: 10:00-11:00 (HKT)

Language: English

Format: Zoom meeting. A link to the webinar will be sent in separate email.


In this online webinar, we will be discussing the following:

- What is Standard Chartered’s vision for the workplace, and how are they preparing for this reality?

- What are the critical factors that should be considered when supporting a new hybrid workforce?

- Is the hospitality mindset the right direction for developers?

- What can landlords and developers do to add value for occupiers in this new normal?


So, what are you waiting for? Register here to secure your spot today!
