  • What a real estate week!

    Property Week Awards Dinner: This year’s Property Week Awards Dinner at the Grosvenor House was a vintage event. Like all self-respecting real estate events these days it was characterised by ‘rent a crowd’ protestors outside the hotel. They certainly didn’t dampen the good spirits of the gathering. I was delighted to be seated next to… Read more »

  • Is #PropTech driving change in real estate?

  • Labour Party Conference Liverpool

    Liverpool was wetter, greyer and certainly didn’t have the upbeat feel of last year’s sunny, seaside Labour conference in Brighton. Staying in the new Pullman, the conference hotel, was interesting as every lift journey was travelled in the company of a familiar face. Robert Peston, John McDonnell, Jeremy Corbyn to name a few. The hotel… Read more »

  • Tony Travers ‘London’s Boroughs at 50’

    Having engaged with Tony Travers at many of our thought leadership debates, I know first-hand his in depth and unparalleled knowledge of exactly what makes London tick – and indeed what makes it malfunction!
