Value Bombs and tweetables

  • Flexible working is about empowerment and productivity
  • Changing the way people work to 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 instead of launching their own flexspace brand
  • There's a blurring of lines between the operators and the landlords
  • For landlords to be successful they need to understand how occupiers are behaving
  • Over time we’ll stop talking about flex being a proportion of the market, because the overall market will be flexible
