LREF 2019

G&T sponsored the NextGen Reception at The London Real Estate Forum (LREF) for the fifth year running. 

LREF moved venues for 2019, with a packed speakers’ programme and a much larger space, the conference focussed on the theme of ‘People not Property’ with panel discussions on wellbeing and how to create more engaging spaces for people who work and live in the buildings we create. 

G&T was proud to sponsor the NextGen initiative at LREF as part of our ongoing NextGen programme. Across the two-day conference this included holding a NextGen debate on the future of flexible working, taking part in a panel discussion about the future shape of London and hosting the evening reception on the first night.

Welcoming over 400 professionals from across the built environment, the NextGen reception invited those who may not have had the opportunity to see the exhibition into the space at its new home in the HAC Grounds.

"We are delighted to once again support the next generation at The London Real Estate Forum."

The NextGen heard from Lucie Murray, Programme Director at the NLA and G&T’s Managing Partner Adam Glover, who spoke about the opportunities still available to the next generation living and working in London as one of the world’s most vibrant cities.

Kat Hanna, Masterplan Strategist for the Euston project at Lendlease gave an inspiring speech about her non-traditional career journey and how to make the most out of the opportunities you’re given. She encouraged those in the room to look outside their current networks and expand their contacts across other industries and disciplines, bringing back new ideas and learnings from other sectors.

"Have the confidence to get out there and tell your story."
