BUILDING A BETTER FUTURE
There is nothing that is more exciting than getting a glimpse into the way that the built world is created - except of course for the vision of where the construction industry is heading. Already today, there have been incredible advancements in robotics, material sciences and computer visioning that are driving the industry forward at the convergence of the digital and physical realities. With the invisible hands of automations working in the background to optimize construction sequencing, discover efficiencies, and prevent hazards before they occur, to the figurative robotic arms driving 3D printers, autonomous trucks, and drone site surveys; tomorrow’s worksites sound like science fiction, and yet these technologies are increasingly being adopted today. Alongside this accelerating drive to digitization, is a global push towards achieving net-zero, with the construction industry taking on a significant role. During her inspiring, high-energy keynote, Nikki Greenberg will discuss the trends and technologies affecting the construction industry and present a vibrant vision for its future inspired by NextGen technologies, insights from other industries, and global forces.
2030: A SPACE ODYSSEY
In 2020, a decade of innovation was condensed into a matter of weeks as companies implemented new systems in response to pandemic lockdowns. While the new reality for realty takes shape, there is an incredible opportunity to rebuild with technology, innovation, empathy and sustainable development principals guiding the way that spaces are designed, transacted, operated and occupied. During her keynote, Nikki discusses how to capitalize on the moment by setting in motion measures that will lead to future growth, prosperity, and a lasting legacy.
THE ANYPLACE WORKPLACE
The workplace is evolving. It is no longer a fixed location of workstations, meeting rooms and private offices. Instead, today’s workplace is about both bricks and bytes, where the physical space has converged with cyber space. During her energetic keynote presentation, Nikki will present her original insights on what workplace means today, in the Age of the Cloud. She will challenge the audience to question the rationale of traditional 9-5 work policies that precede the internet, and present the approach to hybrid-work being taken by future-forward technology companies across the globe to engage digital native Gen-Z and Millennial employees. And most importantly, Nikki will challenge leaders to be bold enough to take steps to challenge the status-quo, and create the conditions for their employees to do their best work.
WHAT BUILDINGS WILL BE LIKE WHEN ROBOTS TAKE OVER
An entertaining, tongue-in-cheek yet highly informative keynote on the role of service robots, PropTech and automations within real estate. The keynote looks at a history of innovation in the built environment drawing from case studies such as Archigram’s Cities Walking, as well as reflecting on predictions from the popular futuristic cartoon series The Jetsons. The audience is encouraged to interact with one another to discuss and explore what the future that we imagine might be like.
CYBER SPACE v REAL SPACE
Today, cyber space is a direct competitor with real space. With the ever increasing dominance of e-commerce and remote work competing with the need for physical malls and offices, the competitive landscape for real estate owners has extended beyond the physical, and into the digital realm. During her keynote presentation, Nikki discusses this notion of the ‘physidigital’, that is, the way in which the physical and digital realms converge. Here, the audience will learn ways that their spaces can be optimized for productivity within this new reality, along with the decisions that they can make today to prepare them for a digital tomorrow.
GEN-Z & THE NEW REALITY FOR REALTY
E In 2019, Gen-Z became the largest population group globally. By 2030, 75% of the workforce will be made up of Gen-Z and Millennials. Gen-Z, as the first generation to not know a world without the internet, interact with the world in a unique way that blurs the boundary between digital and in-person realities. The New Reality for Realty, explores how Gen-Z’s attitudes and expectations will shape the way that spaces are designed and operated in the future. Here, Nikki will provide insights on how to ensure that what is delivered today will meet the needs of tomorrow.
