Value Bombs and Tweetables
1) "Businesses don't want an office, they want a productive workforce!" (click to tweet)
2) #SpaceAsAService is now rapidly moving into the mainstream. The confusion of a Chicken and Pig.
‘What’s the difference between the Chicken and the Pig in a bacon and egg sandwich?’
‘The Chicken is involved but the Pig is committed!’
Knowing who you are as a Landlord is vital with #SpaceAsAService.
Successful networks win because they become a safe, comfortable and painless solution to a need. And they grow exponentially; from no-one knowing anything about them to suddenly being known by everyone. But once established their value grows exponentially as well. People are tribal, we like to belong. Only Pigs will build #SpaceAsAService networks we want to belong to.
But there will be many winners in a #SpaceAsAService world, Chickens as well as Pigs.
3) Mostly, real estate companies are optimized for being Product/Rent Collector companies. As they should be. That is what has worked for several decades. Build or buy an asset, lease it, keep it or sell it. And many are very good at that; the concern is that many will forget what they are, and think their slick machine will work in a different world. It won’t.
4) "The days of coming into the office 5 days a week is terminal!" (click to tweet)
