Dominic’s clients include Grosvenor, British Land, Argent, Land Securities, Canary Wharf Group and Helical.


Dustin Strydom, director of Automation Services at Open Box will showcase their Automation Engine software, which was built specifically for the property industry, to allow property companies to rethink how they allocate tasks to their workforce.
