  • The reality is that data is the lifeblood of digital transformation in real estate Conrad Davies
  • Similar cultures obviously really helps when either working out and calculating whether a product is going to fit or solve a problem in a different market Jonathan Mills
  • I think there's going to be lots of opportunities for businesses to use technology to improve the energy efficiency of their homes and their buildings, and I think that decarbonisation agenda is going to also fuel adoption Conrad Davies
