Proptech Insights – Yardi Australia & New Zealand

Proptech Insights: In Conversation with Brian Sutherland

How can we learn to ride the waves of proptech disruption?

Join us for our Christmas Special Episode and the final session of “Proptech Insights” for this year. Don’t worry, we will be back next year addressing the toughest questions around proptech as per usual.

This time around, however, we are bringing you our very own Brian Sutherland, Vice President (Commercial) for Yardi. Brain headlines commercial sales and marketing across the US, so he may know a thing or two about proptech.

In this session the following questions will be explored:

– What will happen to offices in the next five years?
– Landlords are increasingly looking at integrated models in the US – office, retail and logistics are colliding. Is Australia to follow suit?
– And how can you use technology to understand how your tenants utilise the space and re-position your assets accordingly?

Tune in for a virtual 30-minute conversation with Yardi’s Brian Sutherland and Bernie Devine to be challenged (and equally entertained)!

Time: 8 December 2021, 1:00PM-1:30PM (AEDT)

  • Session 1: In Conversation with Paul Chen (18th August 2021)

    How do real estate leaders pick proptech winners? Don’t start with technology, start with business strategy, advised Radiant Property Technologies Managing Director Paul Chen in the first instalment of Yardi’s Proptech Insights webinar. 

    The property technology universe, once studded with a handful of stars, is now strewn with countless constellations.

    Technologies from artificial intelligence to augmented reality, driverless cars to big data, blockchain to smart buildings, are transforming the real estate value chain. But in a market with what can seem like millions of choices, how do savvy real estate players set their priorities?

    This is a big question – one that Yardi’s Bernie Devine posed to Paul in the first of a new online insight series.

  • Session 2: In Conversation with Lendlease (8th September 2021)

    Every single person in Lendlease’s 11,000-strong team has their sights set on net zero emissions by 2025. It’s a huge undertaking – one which will be impossible without the help of technology and data.

    This puts Richard Kuppusamy and Helen Lam – two of Lendlease’s digital leaders – in the driver’s seat as they help steer their company towards Mission Zero.

    Bernie Devine, Yardi’s Regional Manager, recently caught up with the pair as part of the latest instalment of Yardi’s Proptech Insights series.

  • Session 3: In Conversation with Cromwell (6th October 2021)

    What’s the best way for a real estate company to flex its innovation muscle? Robust evaluation.

    That’s the key takeaway straight from two property technology specialists, Cromwell Property Group’s Sean Rowe-Hagans and Yardi Systems’ Bernie Devine.

    Bernie, Yardi’s Regional Director, caught up with Sean in the latest instalment of Yardi Proptech Insights. It’s a series that Bernie like to call the “proptech duck dive” because it “gets beneath the surface of property technology”.

  • Session 4: In Conversation with RQAM (10th November 2021)

    How will transparent data revolutionise real estate?

    This was the underlying question for Ben Robinson, CEO of Raffles Quay Asset Management in Singapore, when he sat down with Yardi’s Bernie Devine recently for the latest instalment of Yardi Proptech Insights.

    Ben oversees the largest integrated mixed-use development at Singapore’s Marina Bay. In real estate terms, One Raffles Quay and Marina Bay Financial Centre constitute 4.5 million square feet of prime Grade A office and 179,000 square feet retail space. In human terms, the precinct is usually the workplace of 26,000 people.
