The Global Financial Crisis has had a profound impact on all firms and subsequently senior management here in Japan. One of the consequences is a heightened focus on cost containment in an environment where revenue in many cases is down and less predictable. Real estate is one of the highest fixed costs that we all face in our business but corporate real estate decisions also affect other things including staff hiring and retention. The current real estate markets offer opportunities to proactively seek ways to support the business and drive cost savings through to the bottom line.
The September CEO Lunch will give us the opportunity to hear from our own Todd Olson. Todd has been in the real estate business in Japan for 18 years and is the Managing Director of Cushman & Wakefield Japan. His experiences also extends outside of Japan to other parts of Asia Pacific and the U.S. Todd will lead a discussion on the current market and opportunities for corporations in today’s market making for an interesting and timely discussion.
Bring your questions and be ready for another good discussion on real estate.
