On 17th July, Re-Leased held its inaugural event in Manchester, Propel North.
Propel North was a bespoke event designed to educate attendees from across the north about the rapid changes within the property sector in northern cities. Over 50 commercial property professionals joined Re-Leased in central Manchester to hear property and technology leaders share their insight and expertise.
Heath Thomas, Regional Director (North) at Natwest, launched the afternoon with a Property Market Brief. Heath explained the current market trends which will impact businesses and how the dawn of the Fourth Industrial Revolution will affect the property market.
Next, industry experts Kat Bond (Xero Accounting), Samantha Sleigh (Legat Owen) and Harry Iles (Vitcorp Ltd.) headed to the stage for the Industry Insights Panel. Each panelist provided a different perspective to the discussion of the new era of property management. The conversation questioned key value-add methods that underpin all successfully managed property portfolios and honed in on innovation and adaptation to technology within the workplace.
The educational portion of the afternoon closed with a fantastic, keynote, address by Tom Bloxham MBE. Tom took the audience through the journey of his inspirational career - from selling music posters and subletting portions of his unit at Afflecks Palace during university - to co-founding Urban Splash, an award-winning development and regeneration property business.
Following Tom's inspiring talk, all attendees moved to the beautiful South Terrace to build their networks whist enjoying drinks and a barbecue overlooking the spectacular central Manchester skyline.
