May's march from Europe

29 March 2017. On the face of it, just another ordinary Wednesday in an otherwise unremarkable spring. Hardly era-defining. But what that date stands for is arguably the most prominent date in British political history in the post-WWII era. It will shape the future of this country at home and abroad for years to come.

Adaption: a universal challenge

I love my job. Last week I spent a couple of days at MIPIM, meeting new acquaintances and old friends in the sunshine of Cannes and as we speak I’m whizzing up the east coast of England on my way to Darlington in the beautiful County of Durham.

Milton Keynes set to increase its population by 37% - how’s it going to do it?

On Thursday 9 February, Revo led a fantastic Study Tour to Milton Keynes that I was lucky enough to be part of. Offering a full day of educational insight, it was fascinating to see first-hand exactly how physical and digital are both at play in today’s contemporary word.

A breath of fresh air

Ever walked into a shopping destination and thought “I need air!” or “I feel uncomfortable” because of a lack of ventilation?  Has this stopped you staying longer, buying more or enjoying yourself? If the answer is yes, you should spare a thought for the employees.

Not every disability is visible. Ulcerative Colitis – a Mum’s view.

In March 2016 my son Harry was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis. Like any other 21st Century mother, I turned to Google to find out what exactly UC was. This is what I found out; Under the umbrella of Inflammatory Bowel Disease, it is grouped together with Crohns Disease.

The F&B Market - Sustainable Growth?

The UK food and beverage market has undergone a period of sustained expansion, which has not been replicated in other retail and leisure sectors since 2008. As the number of new restaurant entrants to the sector has grown and unit numbers increase, there have been some questions over the sustainability of this growth.

Future Retail Destinations - take it from me, it’s all about learning from experience

Why is the UK good at driving innovation? It's all about the mature market. You can with certainty class the UK as having a mature retail property market; but conversely this has led to innovation on a big scale – and the world is looking on.

Asia: Changing places. At pace.

Plus Ca Change, Plus C’est La Meme Chose – As our probably former European partners like to say

A long career in retail should prepare you for change, nothing stays the same for long. Comparing a town centre goad plan from when you started your career, mine in 1993, with today, brings swift realisation that every grey hair and wrinkle has been earned in this most dynamic, rewarding and sometimes brutal of commercial real estate markets.

It's only been 10 years...

Since the credit crisis of 2007.  What a decade! It's time to be positive. Thankfully we’re not in the same league as then, but it’s a shaky start to the year!
