Covid-19 has had severe impacts on urban centres across the globe, and the absence of workers in city offices is having major effects on economic output and viability of many retail and hospitality businesses based in business districts.

This CPA webinar will explore how global cities are tackling the task of encouraging workers to return to office-based working. Why are workers in some cities returning to the office more quickly than others? How can the property sector support and facilitate a safe return?

Moderated by CPA Chair Dan Scanlon (Brookfield Properties – Senior Vice President, Developments), speakers include Callie Haines, the New York-based Senior Vice President, Asset Management at Brookfield Properties; Laurent Lavergne, the Paris-based Global Head of Asset Management & Development, Real Assets at AXA IM – Real Assets; and Dr Christian Schede, the Berlin-based Managing Shareholder of Greenberg Traurig.

The discussion will explore how public and private sectors in different settings are navigating the numerous barriers that prevent a full return to the office, and the approaches and policies that are – in some locations – aiding a swifter return.
