Symposium 2014

Symposium 2014



You won’t want to miss the Corporate Real Estate event of 2014!

Our theme this year is Location, Location, Location – The Physical versus the Virtual aspects of CRE.

Following 2013’s hugely successful Symposium we have built the 2014 event based on your feedback.

You told us you are interested in:

  • Global events and trends
  • Workplace and the city
  • Creativity and the spirit of innovation
  • Work as a thing you do and its relationship to place
  • Workplace and work style
  • And of course Corporate Real Estate and its challenges

The 2014 Symposium is about bringing the best of international ideas and practices to New Zealand and celebrating the best of our local learnings. CoreNet Global and our sponsors are excited by the calibre of speakers who will be presenting at the Symposium on 29 May, covering topics from how to foster an innovative start-up culture to harnessing the power of people and community in the corporate workplace. Urban transformation is highlighted along with strategy, culture change and the use of technology to spur workplace and organisational transformation. It’s all here. We explore what is happening globally and what does it mean for New Zealand?

After scouring the globe we found some truly inspirational people and projects to share with you. Our speakers tick multiple boxes and are working on some very exciting initiatives which could transfer very easily to our corner of the world. Juliette Morgan is going to address urban transformation and how she is actively attracting tech companies and growing start-ups in London. Elisabeth Gleed is also from London and will enlighten us on workplace transformation at the BBC which is nothing short of revolutionary!

Locally, the Symposium features workshops on:

  • ​Auckland Council – presented by Ian Wheeler, Sharon Coombes and Chris Alcock
  • BNZ Flexible Workplace – presented by Jo Monaghan and Christian Pistauer
  • Visions of the Rock Star Economy – insightful deliberations from Alan McMahon of Colliers, Justin Kean of JLL, Tim Rookes of CBRE andCarey Oldfield of DTZ.​

David Trubridge, internationally successful designer and entrepreneur, will close out the formal sessions with his insights on sustainability, design, innovation and running his global business from the sunny Hawke’s Bay.

With over 300 delegates attending last year, this year looks set to see another outstanding turnout of corporate and property industry leaders, and you won’t want to miss the networking opportunities – with a sparkling presymposium soiree the night before and many networking opportunities on the day. We offer an unsurpassable opportunity to learn, interact and take part in the evolution of CRE in New Zealand.

Come and join us for this year’s CoreNet Global Symposium at the stunning Viaduct Events Centre on Auckland’s waterfront – it looks set to be the best yet!

It’s an exciting line-up of international speakers and local experts – and one that I’m thrilled to be helping bring to the corporate real estate community in New Zealand. The committee are working incredibly hard to ensure this symposium will outshine all others that have gone before ...
your presence there will help make it so!

I invite you to join us at the 2014 NZ Symposium and look forward to seeing you there.

Yours, in anticipation!
