Message from the President

Already two years ago, at the Workplace Network (TWN) annual conference in Seoul, South Korea, I happily agreed to take on the role of President of TWN. Shortly after, most of our respective communities were dealing with the outbreak of COVID-19 – some of us still are. Every day, we are reminded of how our lives can change in an instant. I sincerely hope that you are on a progressive road to recovery. Around the world, we are actively defining and managing a "new normal," planning the integration of many learnings, changes and discoveries that we experienced during this pandemic.

What's next? Since March 2020, worldwide discussions have been very informative when it comes to the future of the work. As the President of TWN and Assistant Deputy Minister (ADM) for Public Services and Procurement Canada (PSPC) Real Property Services at that time, I had the opportunity to lead podcast interviews on the future of workplaces and the modernization of offices spaces in the public sector with countries from around the world. These discussions exposed numerous similarities in approaches, expectations and visions that I encourage you to discover.

The real estate industry is changing rapidly and the pandemic forced us into a new business and real estate portfolio reality. TWN provides an accessible forum that allows us to share information, strategies, successes, best practices and lessons learned for the mutual benefit of our community. It provides important connections between senior executives from around the world with business-based approaches to their public sector asset management. Now more than ever, TWN can help us all to thrive in this new era.  

Looking ahead, I hope to welcome new TWN members so we can continue to broaden our knowledge and benefit from new perspectives in an expanded network based on information sharing and collaboration.

Thank you for your continued support!
