  • Flexible working is about empowerment and productivity
  • Changing the way people work can create a better working environment for everyone
  • Occupiers are looking for landlords to provide flex and amenity space within the asset
  • It’s important for landlords to understand which operator brands are out there
  • Landlords who do not have large portfolios should look to partner with operators
  • There’s a blurring of lines between operators and landlords
  • For landlords to be successful they need to understand how occupiers are behaving
  • Overtime we’ll stop talking about flex being a portion of the market
