This episode features Zia Yusuf. He is Senior Vice President, Strategic Ecosystem & Industry Solutions at VMware. In this position, he leads the teams responsible for building joint horizontal and industry-centric solutions with the company's ecosystem partners across Dell, global cloud providers (Hyperscalers), global system integrators, and global ISVs. Zia chatted with us about his outlook on economic development, emerging markets, and the use of technology to benefit and enhance business as a competitive capability. He provides thoughts on reimagining how companies and customers operate in a changing world affected by enhanced digital transformation. Zia discusses how startups and large incumbent companies approach the adoption of new technologies, as they try to reconcile with the past while promoting advancement for the future. He also talks about how AI and ML are game changing technologies that are going to have a big impact on financial services.  --3 Takeaways:As we go into the future of multi-cloud, modern apps, and the edge, we need to more effectively invigorate different types of partners. There are a multitude of ways that we need to work with Hyperscalers to make sure that customers can get the full spectrum of multi-cloud solutions. We need to look at more verticalized solutions, so as you think about modern apps and edge solutions, we need to be more aware of the requirements and demands from a retail company versus a financial services company versus a healthcare company. SaaS Technology allows you to iterate much faster and much cheaper than ever before. Companies need to take advantage of that more. While many do to some degree, there is still not enough of an experimentation on the business model. Any company that wants to compete, whether it's a startup or a larger legacy company, needs to have a robust ecosystem strategy. You won't survive if you try to go at it alone. Partnerships, especially technology partnerships, for more established companies allow them capabilities to accelerate their pace of innovation rather than just building it themselves. --Key Quotes: “There are very significant technology innovations and changes that are happening in the financial services industry, maybe to some degree even more disruptive than are happening in other industries. And so, whether you are a large commercial bank, investment bank, mortgage house, whether it's blockchain or AI, or the advancements in mobile and robotic process automation, it's a very significant series of in some sense a perfect storm of these technologies coming together.” “People forget how foundationally our lives have changed in a relatively short period of time. I think technology has been in some sense that great equalizer. There's a lot of people in the world that still don't have access to their digital services. The digital divide is very real, even in the US, it is very real.” “Whether it's VMware or any other large tech company, you can only be successful if you truly leverage and put together a very significant ecosystem of complementary solutions.” “When you talk about a transformation journey, a lot of time is spent on a company's technology transformation, and it's important. A lot of time is spent on the business process transformation and the business model transformation, which is also super important. Not enough time is spent on the people side of it and the cultural transformation.” “I think the accounting and economics of how we run our lives needs to change. And, if that happens, people will understand the true impact of that. We are custodians of this planet for the next generation, and we're not doing a great job of it. Unfortunately, until many of us have more hard days in the summer than we've ever had before, and you have floods like in Pakistan and other parts of the world, hopefully that generates more change than not. It's an important piece of where VMware takes it seriously and seeks to play the role that it can. It's all our responsibility.” --Best Career Advice:“Think of your life as a career with a long arc, as opposed to a series of jobs and how do I get the next job? Am I getting a raise? Am I not getting a raise? Think a few years out and you'll think about the world differently.” --Bio:Zia Yusuf - Senior Vice President, Strategic Ecosystem & Industry Solutions at VMwareZia Yusuf joined VMware in 2021 as VMware's Senior Vice President of Strategic Ecosystem and Industry Solutions, responsible for building joint horizontal and industry-centric solutions with our ecosystem and alliances across Dell, global cloud providers (hyperscalers), global system integrators, and global ISVs. Prior to VMware, Zia was a Senior Partner & Managing Director at Boston Consulting Group (BCG)—serving as a core member of the firm's Technology Advantage, and Technology, Media & Telecommunications practices. At BCG, Zia worked with a wide range of technology clients on issues related to software, technology strategy, and the resulting go-to-market approach including pricing, ecosystem strategy, and digital transformation to drive growth. He also led the effort to establish the Silicon Valley office for BCG and was the global IoT lead for the firm. Before BCG, Zia was CEO of a leading IoT startup called Streetline, and an executive vice president at SAP where he served as head of the global ecosystem and partner group managing a network of 7,500 partners, SAP's award-winning online communities of innovation, and the $125 million SAP NetWeaver Fund. He also founded and led the SAP Corporate Strategy and Design Services team and has served as an investment banker at Goldman Sachs and an Entrepreneur-in-Residence at Sutter Hill Ventures & Norwest Venture Partners. Zia started his career at the World Bank Group working on health care projects in Southern Africa and project finance projects in South and East Asia. Zia has also served as an associate consulting professor at Stanford University's Design “D” School where he taught classes on user-centric design and design thinking for large organizations to accelerate innovation. Zia has a passion to enable education for all and has served on several non-profit boards on the topic, including currently serving on the board for the Silicon Valley Education Foundation. Zia holds a bachelor of arts from Macalester College, a master of science in International Affairs from the School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University and an MBA from Harvard Business School. --For more information:LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/ziayusuf/The Cube: Zia Yusuf, VMware | VMware Explore 2022

How will EY's split shake up the sector?

Business Standard Podcast

London-based EY, the third-largest of the Big Four accounting firms, has said it is moving ahead with plans to break the firm into two companies. This will create an $18-billion revenue audit firm and a separate but larger and faster- growing $24 billion consulting arm. The audit business will retain the EY name, while the advisory firm will don a new brand identity.  The firm's 13,000 partners across 140 countries, including 550 in India, will vote on the proposal later this year. EY Global said leaders at its 15 largest member firms accounting for 80% of total revenues have unanimously supported the strategy. EY's Greater China members have refused to come on board.   If successful, the move would mark the biggest shake-up in the sector since the collapse of auditor Arthur Anderson in 2002 because of the Enron accounting scandal. It reduced the ‘Big Five' to ‘Big Four'.  Accenture, which was split off from Arthur Andersen and listed in 2001, is now worth $183 billion, up from $6 billion at the time of its IPO.  A split of EY would result in multi-million dollar cash payouts to audit partners by the newly created consulting unit and share awards to consultant partners who move out. Reports said the consulting business will go for an IPO, with plans to raise about $10 billion dollars by selling a 15% stake. It will reportedly borrow another $17 billion, much of which would be used to pay off the partners at EY's traditional auditing business. The breakup will ease pressure from regulators to avoid conflicts of interest arising from EY providing non-audit services to audit clients.  EY's Big Four rivals have also been facing the pressure to break up their audit and consulting practices. Dinesh Kanabar, CEO, Dhruva Advisors LLP says regulators may push others to follow EY's example. The likes of BCG and McKinsey will face stiffer competition. Tax compliance and advisory may face challenges.  EY Global CEO Carmine di Sibio said The separation can bring in an additional $10 billion a year for the advisory business in consultancy fees from big tech companies, as the business will be freed from conflicts that bar it from winning work with EY's large audit clients.   Mukesh Butani, Managing Partner, BMR Legal says EY's move will address conflict of interest. The split will allow raising of growth capital for non-audit arm. EY's decision clearly has advantages, he believes.  EY CEO Di Sibio said conflicts become harder to manage as firms get bigger. He believes, other Big Four firms like Deloitte, KMPG and PwC will have to split their businesses eventually. However, the other three have refused to follow EY's lead in breaking up their businesses and indicated continuity with their current business models of providing a mix of audit, tax, advisory, legal and other professional services under one roof.   Once brought into effect, EY's decision may lead to sweeping changes in the audit and advisory sectors. While it may prove to be a value-unlocking exercise for some, others may face enhanced competition. It remains to be seen whether the other Big Four firms will change their stance anytime soon or not.

My name's Jessica galley. And on this show, we discuss all things real estate with investors and experts in a variety of industries that impact real estate. Whether you're looking at your first investment or raising your first fund, join me and let's build that portfolio one square foot at a time. Ladies and gentlemen, my name's Jesse Regal, and you're listening to working capital the real estate podcast. My special returning guest today is Sheila botting. Sheila is the principal and president America's professional services at Avis and young.   That is the umbrella for the different groups of consulting valuation and project management. Sheila has a, has had a number of different roles in the commercial real estate space spanning from her roles in executive management at Deloitte Kushman and Wakefield and Royal LaPage. Sheila, how you doing today?   Sheila (54s): I'm great. Jessie, how are you doing?   Jesse (57s): Doing fantastic. So the conversation today, I thought it was topical because I think the last time we spoke was the beginning of 2021. And so much has changed in the office and commercial real estate market in general. And I thought it would be great to have you back on to discuss those aspects and have the, and how they have changed. And I know that you have, you know, made these type of discussions and, and presentations with various outlets, wall street, journal, Harvard business review. So I thought you could do the same for us here.   Sheila (1m 29s): Oh, terrific. Thanks so much. So it's all about return to office. You can tell my back background. I have returned to the office today and, you know, two to three days a week, along with everybody else across north America around the globe. And I think that for, for all of us, it's sorting through how do we deal with return to office? What does it look like? What are the key pieces? How do we make it work for our businesses for us personally? How do we embrace this so that it's, you know, dynamic for people and way forward, what we've learned from all of this is it's all changed.   It's not going back, whatever back was, we're not in the nine to five work environment that we once were. Now, it's all about flexibility. It's about building our ecosystem. It's about navigating what it is that we need to do and how we do it. It's understanding, you know, different roles that people have and making sure that they've got the right tools, technology and physical spaces in order to deliver. I thought what I would do today in talking is, is I know you know about this, but to share with all of your audience, something called the vitality index that Avis and young uses across north America.   In fact, the globe, what we do is we measure cell phone data usage in downtown for 26 north American city. So what I thought I'd do is first level set on where are we today? You know, in September, 2022, where have we come from from March, 2020? And what does that return office look like? So I'm gonna share my screen with you. So Jesse Avis and young has something called the vitality index. And what we do is we measure the return to downtown.   So I'm showing this on the screen, really what we're doing from March 2nd, 2020 through to this most recent examples, August 29th, 2022, we measure return to downtown. So we've got mobility data from, you know, various locations, typically eight to 12 locations downtown in the major north American cities, in fact, 26 north American cities. And we see where it is relative to before the pandemic. So you can see on the list, we've got the greens, our Canada, the blues are the United States.   So at the top of our list in Canada, Edmonton, which is in Northern Alberta is down 43.8% from before the pandemic started in March 2nd, 2020. That means that the foot traffic in downtown Edmonton is still down 44% on one end of the spectrum. And that's the best city in north America going all the way to the other extreme. Again, another Canadian city, Ottawa is down 80% from when the pandemic started.   So you think about some of the larger us cities, you know, Boston is down 43.8%. New York is still down 50% Austin down, 52% Chicago down almost 56% east bay, Oakland down 56, San Francisco down 57 and half percent Calgary down 58, Montreal down 59. And, and so on across the board, you know, Washington down almost 63%.   So when you start looking at the data, you realize that as much as people talk about return to office, we have not returned to office, you know, knock your socks off. If somebody says, things are going back to normal. What this is largely saying is that our entire world is not returned. The chart on the right here really shows what that looks like across the board. And it shows that in fact, we have not returned to normal and it looks like in my opinion, it's not returning to whatever we define as normal, anytime soon, at the same time, we can also look at various industry sectors.   So across this bit, if you were to look at say the technology industry, perhaps, you know, faring worse off than finance or some of the other sectors, so absolutely fascinating when you start peeling away the layers of the onion. So I wanted to start with this whole perspective in terms of what does return look like, who is returning, how does it all play out? And the message across the board is right across north America. The 26 cities that we're looking at at best were down, you know, over 43% from before the pandemic.   Yep. So then next natural question is what does that mean for employees and occupiers? The people that, you know, lease space in various markets, that's one whole bundle. Another whole bundle would be the investors and asset managers. What do we do to get people to come downtown? And a third part would be all of the businesses and the governments that are looking at, you know, the downtown business association that thrive on return.   And so, because of course the vibrancy of our downtowns are very core to the fabric of our north American economy. What does that look like? So we can, you know, dive into each one of those segments to understand how to unpack it and what are the various components so that we can think about the future and think about how do we manage our businesses? How do we manage our assets and how do we manage our downtowns   Jesse (6m 59s): When it comes to the vitality index, Sheila, in terms of the, the actual use of the, the cell phone data. I know that, you know, working with Avis and young, we talk about this a lot, but for those that, that kind of wanna understand the cellphone data in a downtown area, it's kind of used as a, as a proxy for a full office building. Is that, do I have that right in terms of how that, how that data is used or, or what it's used to represent?   Sheila (7m 26s): Yeah. So what we'll do is we'll, we'll tag, you know, geo spaces in downtown's various cities, eight to 12 different locations, and we'll, we'll measure the pings on the cell phone data in those locations. So pick a, you know, a downtown financial core office building or a downtown transit hub. In some cases, our clients have us look at hotels and, or even life sciences buildings out in the suburbs. So we can really geofence any type of location for this particular application.   It's been the downtowns of these north American cities that we update, you know, once every two weeks at the beginning, we were doing it every week saying everybody thought, year one, Hey, we're going back. We're going back. Well, it's not happening anytime soon. And so what the data shows us, is it not yet returned to downtown? Yeah. So what does that mean? So from the occupy perspective, you know, the company or the government organization or the business, that's thinking about their space, they think how much space do I need if it's sitting there empty, pick your north American city, because even before the pandemic space was 50% of the time.   So before the pandemic, when we did utilization studies, you know, bums and seats analysis across north American cities, the average seat was 50% of the time. And so that didn't, if you were in some remote location in the middle of the nowhere or downtown New York or Toronto, the same thing would be held true. And that's because the way we work has changed, we're no longer processing paper from the left to the right of our desk. Rather we're engaging, collaborating, doing things in many different ways. And so, because of that, even before the pandemic, people were rethinking how they would devise their workspace.   The pandemic has simply accelerated that overall trend and is forcing us to consider what is the role of the office? What is it we want to be? Are we going create row and farms? Are we going to create a downtown campus for a downtown lab or in a downtown engagement experience, a hospitality experience for our people. And that's really what the pivot is toward is creating these immersive experiences for our people, so that when they do get together, it's easy for them to collaborate, to engage and to solve problems together.   It's not about processing paper off to the right of your desk. Although you could say it's about being on zoom teams, but nonetheless, it's not about, you know, the old ways of working. And so the value proposition that companies are making for their people is where the pivot is. So on one side of the spectrum, we're saying we can get rid of a chunk of our individual workspaces because it becomes about collaboration and teaming. People like me. I can, you know, do most of my heads down work when I'm sitting quietly on my own, away from everybody, as opposed out, you know, bullpen kind of environment.   So you recalibrate how you work. You still get people choice. So, you know, if you, if you need to go to a bullpen or you need to go to the officer, so places to go, but the rotation is toward collaborative spaces. And so with that pivot on space, suddenly you need less space. So first generation in these types of evolutions typically involve anywhere from a 20 to 30% reduction space. Assuming you've got the same employee population, second generation could be as much as 50% reduction in space.   We've had clients reducing their space by 50% through this whole pandemic. And they're saying, you know, we're, we're quite fine. Having people work from home 1, 2, 3 days a week, that's, that's quite fine for us. And so the question comes, how do you entice your people come back to the office because in the war for talent, it's all about providing people flexibility to make choices with how and where they want work, but equally create an incredible environment that they want come back downtown. And they engage with their colleagues and employees to, you know, get their projects and work completed.   So that's literally what the entire market is looking for today. At least the folks that we're dealing with cross all sectors.   Jesse (11m 43s): Jill, I, I have a question on the, so on the work that you were doing, you, you mentioned the utilization studies you've done in the past. And as we know, this predated the pandemic, a lot of companies, they, they operate at, you know, 50, 60, 70% depending on their, on the industry, the company and location, but the, the, excuse me, the studies that you did, where you had companies actually go and reduce space, is that type of reduction, the same, the philosophy, the same as it would be now for reducing space based on low utilization, as opposed to reducing space based on, you know, what we've learned of how we can work differently in the last 12 months, or they are, they separate kind of exercises.   Sheila (12m 27s): I would say all of the above, literally it's a bit of everything. So I think before the pandemic, there were those early adopters, you know, I would suggest that it started originally out of Australia with many of the banks there that went to hot desking, unassigned sitting models. And then, you know, the accounting, big consulting firms went to that model. As many of their people were out in clients, offices. And now it's moved on to financial institutions and public sector organizations, GSA out of Washington embraced government of Canada has embraced this city of Toronto province of Ontario.   So this is literally wide swept across the markets. And that started before the pandemic, all of that was before the pandemic. And now what I see happening is that simply accelerating across all sectors. Now the real question is how much, or how little and what is the right fit. So what might be the right fit for example, law firm, which is very paper intensive to a consulting firm or a financial institution, very different solutions, depending on the industry sector.   And more importantly, the, the type of work that the individual employee and our teams would do. So that's really what we're navigating right now, making sure that the specific solutions for that client group and that industry sector, you know, absolutely apply.   Jesse (13m 48s): Got it. So that was the, so with the workplace workplace, we've talked about the occupy piece here and there a couple other components.   Sheila (13m 58s): So you know, the other components on the occupy, it's about the war for talent. It's about making the right kind of space for your people and, and what resonates across the different generations. And so it's not one size fits all by any, by any stretch of the imagination. You know, you, you really have to think about the different populations, whether it's the veterans, the boomers, millennials, gen X, gen Z, what, what does that entire group need?   So that's a generational distinction. Then you have the whole style of working. So if I'm, for example, if I'm a loud boisterous person, I need to be around. A lot of people I'll have one way that I like to work. Versus if I'm a quiet individual that needs to have walls around me to work, that's a completely different style. And so there's a whole neuroscience attached to understanding those different work styles and then designing appropriate workspaces. And so I think that particular topic has been hyper influenced through the, if I'm working office like that, right?   I like that. Versus if I'm a Garys, outgoing person, you stick me in a quiet place at home, I'm going outta my mind. And so trying to understand those differences become everything. So that's one whole science that's evolving relative to different work stuff. So in some organizations picking engineering firm or law firm where you have many different types of personnel that has one evolution versus our firm, which is brokerage where everybody's a lot more gregarious. So again, very different fits in the marketplace, understanding that, and then quantifying the other big question in the design lies around assigned seating versus unassigned seating.   So if you have population that's hybrid and you're saying, oh, we should have them into work two, three, maybe four days a week. And oh, by the way, while they're in, they're collaborating with others, they're going out to Starbucks, they're meeting in different sessions, then you don't necessarily need to sign seating for those people, right. They can move around based on their schedules for the day. So if I come in in the morning, I need to do some emails versus collaborate with colleagues on projects versus, you know, go to meetings to talk about various topics.   I don't need my assigned seat through the entire day. And that's where the 50% vacancy occurred before the pandemic. So again, that's whole other iteration about the unassigned seating in order to be successful, you need tremendous change management programs. So you could argue the entire world is going through the largest change management program right now, because think about you, you're sitting in your remote office right now, and you're saying quite happy here. You know, I do this and, and give up assigned, sitting downtown and only come downtown.   When I need to, like any day of the week, I have flexibility. I can go my vacation property to work on Fridays if whatever the may be. So that flexibility becomes really crucial in the work for other key components come, you know, I've talked about design, very flexible design, flexible use of space, hot desking, and assigned seating amenities are huge, both within the physical space, over rotation, on hospitality, food, coffee, the quality of coffee in your space becomes everything.   Putting apples out for wellness for the property owners, making sure that you've got an abundance of services and amenities for the employees. So, so that it helps their occupy and the work for talent. And then of course, ESG environmental, social, and governance considerations, making sure that those are all addressed, whether it's well certified or least certified, those become other key anchors for the space.   Jesse (17m 51s): So, so when you talk, when you move on to the, that piece there, where you have investors or asset managers, I mean, it's the, the other side of the, of the same coin. How are you, you know, what is the recommendation or what do you see changing in that side of, of our world and, and what they're thinking about that might be different than the, the occupy side.   Sheila (18m 13s): So it's about taking a sterile office building, right? Think about the old prestigious, even think of, you know, suits the, the great TV show, right? And you think about these wonderful, beautiful marble, you know, marble sterile office buildings. So then you say, how do you take that and inject a hospitality or a hotel like personality, that space, of course, we can do that in the day of the week, throw a coffee shop in the lobby, animate with retail, create events, pizza days, and suddenly you take your lobbies and your big open spaces and you activate them.   So that they're really intriguing for people to be in whether they're inside the lobby walls or outside in the green spaces around the office building. So that's one massive opportunity. So you're managing the asset, but you're also activating the asset at the same time. Some other opportunities lie around, you know, bicycle storage in the base, in the basement, putting incredible retail in whether it's a coffee store, whether it's a fitness center, whether it's a daycare and many other retail amenities in this space, also thinking about, you know, common stairwells right now based building stairwells that are concrete, you know, not terribly nice in many buildings.   Well, what would happen if you painted them, animated them and did some exercise kinda routine running up and down staircases. So it's about taking core asset and doing really cool things with it to make people, you know, want to be there. It's about surprise and delight. And again, so it's, it's turning your asset on its heels to, to operate more like a hotel or, or a hospitality opportunity.   Jesse (19m 52s): Now this, this plays into other roles in real estate transit being one of them. What we've seen with tenants that we've worked with is that really good inviting office space that's well located, has fared not surprisingly much better than, than other asset class on different transit roads that might not be in the path of progression or just connectivity. What are you seeing on the transit front? Is, is that a theme that's, that's persisting through, through the pandemic and, and to now?   Sheila (20m 22s): Oh, absolutely. So it's funny Northwestern university asked me to be involved in workplace because everybody's, so it's specifically on the transportation front, because everybody is so excited about how workplace is influencing the return to downtown transit. Are we using subways and commuter trains? What does that look like? You know, before the pandemic, there were gazillions of, of dollars put into infrastructure investment. Now, suddenly if people aren't using them to the same extent, so you could probably take the vitality index and apply that to a trans situation.   So there's a, a very real example. One of the interesting trends that we found through the vitality index in New York, we actually monitored it on hour by hour basis. And we found that it was less busy during the office Workday, more busy on nights and weekends. So everybody was using transit to go to the theater, to go to restaurants, downtown or weekend events. So the tourism component is alive and well is what we're learning.   It's the office part that is really the challenge. And so on the transit front, I think that's just a sense of, of time and return and population growth. And I think it will take a while for it to return. If you're looking at the vitality index is one of the indicators.   Jesse (21m 46s): So on the, on the office, and, you know, we were talking a little bit before the show here and in industrial multi-res, you know, real estate, you always say is a very local thing, but you could almost make some pretty sweeping claims of how well multi-family industrial has done over the last two years. Office has been that question, mark. And I was speaking to the CIO of, of crowd street, Ian for Mely last week. And we were talking about this. He called it the tenant inducement complex in that we've gotten so large in the amounts of tenant allowance, tenants, inducements for build outs.   And it seems like we're ripping down stuff that we just put in five years ago, where there's this discussion of somehow commoditizing office space in the way that we haven't seen it in the office sector. So that it's more of a plug and play. It's not, you know, every three years or five years that you're ripping out hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of, of build out. What's, what's your take on that? I'd love to get your thoughts.   Sheila (22m 47s): So, yes, of course, because before the pandemic, people were creating cube farms or creating rows and rows and rows of, or warehouses of workers, and that's not what we need, we didn't need it, then we certainly don't need it now. And so now, you know, if you were to, you know, if you watch any of the, the, you know, shows on WeWork and that whole story, but that's the animated environment that everybody wants. So yes, you can create that. And so we have course have a whole flu office practice that thinks about that space, where as a tenant, I can go lease that kind of space.   And I don't have to worry about the leasehold improvements. I can just move into it. Right? And so if you're a, you know, a mid-sized tenant that becomes a really viable solution for you, because you can scale up or scale down based on whatever your requirements are, and you don't need to worry about building space out and all the rest of it. If you're a larger, whether it's a bank or a law firm or a consulting firm, that is your brand, right? Your brand is your space. And so you wanna put your colors and image and reputation around all of that. So again, it depends on what you need, but the movement toward engaged creative spaces absolutely is here to stay.   Jesse (24m 2s): So   Sheila (24m 2s): Gone are the cubes.   Jesse (24m 4s): It's funny, you mentioned WeWork, cuz it was in that discussion. Speaking about Adam, Adam, Newman's new venture with flow. And I think it was 350 million raise for that. And trying to take that to a multi-family, you know, do that the same thing close to the same thing that was done for rework, but for, for residential or multi residential. So for this whole, you know, aspect of workplace strategy coming back to work is, you know, when are we going back to quotations normal? It seems like those, those are just, you know, terms that people have thrown around that when we're really looking at office and the future of, of workplace, it it's that it's not gonna be an either or it sounds like it's going to be a hybrid pun, pun, no pun intended there, but we would love to get your thoughts if you had your crystal ball out here.   And we talk about these timeframes, cuz you made a great point where we're checking the vitality index every week because okay, next week the pandemic's over next week gets over. But if looking kind of soberly at what you're seeing in the marketplace, in terms of workplace environment, return to office, you know, what, what do you tell people or clients when they're asking you, you know, what is your forecast for the next year, two years or or longer if it's, if that is what you think it's going to take.   Sheila (25m 20s): So if today two and half years into the pandemic, we're down 50 to 55 on average, across north America. And oh, by the way, that's up from the 70 to 75% average has taken two and half years in another two and half years, we'll be at the 30 to 40% range on average. It will take a while for people to fully acclimatize, to returning to downtown. I've learned that I can actually get more work done in my home office.   You and I can have this call very effective at it. And so when I come downtown, it's a whole other way of working. And so for the individual, it's about balancing all of those things up. And so when you have millions of individuals making those choices, I think it's gonna take a while to, to return. So then the next question becomes well, is the office dead? You know that, that's the obvious question everybody's asking. And the answer to that is absolutely not. We're social people.   We want to be with our colleagues. Jesse, I love seeing you in the office. Like that's a really important thing. We need to have that connection. So the office is not dead, but it does have to be redefined. And so these giant towers that we have to have to be reimagined for the future so that they become relevant for the next wave of working because that relevance and the value proposition of the office is incredibly powerful. So you can't throw the baby hope with the bath water, you know, think about it 10 years ago or something like that.   Industrial. Wasn't very exciting now, suddenly it's very exciting. And so this two shall pass and the office assets two shall become very relevant all over again because the downtowns in our north American cities are vibrant centers of creativity and innovation and we need to, you know, preserve and protect that.   Jesse (27m 12s): And when it comes to that, that search for talent, you know, there's been different studies of, you know, whether it's two or three weeks of, of commute time, what that equates to in actual time of the year, in the year in terms of what employers will have to trade or what, what needs to happen between employers and employees, if they do go with a hybrid model. So if you know, like Comcast and apple just announced that I don't know if it was mandated, but that they're gonna go with a three day work week. As of now, what do you see that as the, you know, obviously it's dependent on the employer, the, the specific employers, but how do you see that negotiation taking place where some companies do wanna mandate some form of, of presence in the office, maybe not at a full-time basis, but they want to have something there.   How do, how do you see these discussions or how have you seen these discussions play out?   Sheila (28m 2s): So I think, again, it goes back, it depends on the company. Depends on the culture. Depends, depends, depends. So hybrid is here to stay. So then the questions for each company, how do navigate that hybrid? And so saying you've gotta come back five days a week are never going work. That's never going be in my view viable. I think the, the, the opportunity, same flex work schedules, flexible opportunities. I think that will be the theme overall, not thou shall do this because it's been proven that employees, 85% of employees returning to the workplace want flexible work hours.   And if you don't offer that as an employer, they're voting with their feet and going somewhere else. So that becomes table stakes. So then you say, okay, got hybrid. How am I going manage that? How am I gonna mitigate that? Typically what happens is you'll make some kind of a corporate statement, says we'd love to have people to come back two to four days a week, whatever that is. And then each manager, each team then, you know, provides governance for that team based on the type of work that do and based on theirs and that's plays.   That all means for the real estate.   Jesse (29m 24s): It's, it's always a, a wealth of knowledge. Every time we have a discussion, if there isn't anything else that, that you want to add here, I think we kind of, we could talk for another hour here on this stuff. If there's nothing else I thought we would kind of leave it here with where individuals, whether in the commercial real estate space or just, you know, investors, people that are interested in these topics when it comes to workplace strategy, where do you know what typical resources do you point people to? You know, when we're having this discussion aside from obviously going, going out to and young, we have a number of reports that you can get there.   Sheila (30m 1s): So what I I'm addicted to all of the reports. So I think starting with management consulting firms who deal with human resources, human capital, and look at those broad trends, because what we're speaking about are those are those management consulting, human resources trends that we then try to articulate in transition into the real estate world. So why we start there? So whether it's McKenzie, Deloitte, PWC, BCG, or whoever, they all have really highly valuable commentary regarding those big trends.   The other part of this is looking at the large enterprises, understanding what their policy statements are. We're starting to track all that across north America. So we could share what various financial institutions, you know, life sciences company, professional services firms are doing within their space. So understanding that I think is really important and then making your own decisions. And that's really for unoccupied piece for the investors, never before have you had to be so creative, I'm a huge proponent of workshops.   And by workshops engaging your key stakeholders, whether they're occupiers employees or whoever I'm reimagining the office building, what could it look like? Everybody loves to play monopoly. So let's play monopoly with the office building and figure out what the right fit is for your, for your building. Overall,   Jesse (31m 25s): My returning guest today has been Sheila botting Sheila. Thanks for being part of working capital.   Sheila (31m 31s): Thanks Jesse for the opportunity really love again.   Jesse (31m 44s): Thank you so much for listening to working capital the real estate podcast.

Engineering Tools to Characterize Immune Responses Important for HIV PreventionHIV remains a global epidemic, with 37.9 million people living with HIV worldwide (UNAIDS, 2018). Various prevention strategies, including pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) and antiretroviral treatment in pregnant women with HIV have shown to be effective in decreasing HIV transmission. As these prevention strategies are becoming more commonly used, it is important to understand their effects on immune responses relevant for proper diagnosis and treatment.  In addition, elucidating inflammatory responses/mediators that can increase HIV susceptibility is also key to reducing HIV transmission. Altered immune responses in patients with HIV that occur as a response to novel PrEP modalities, are not well characterized and tools to characterize this altered response are lacking. Furthermore, as chronic inflammation is a factor known to increase HIV risk, it is important to understand mechanisms mediating these processes. This talk will discuss the methods I have developed to explore immune responses related to HIV prevention and diagnosis. These include characterization of HIV antibodies commonly used for diagnostic tests, and proteomics-based systems biology approaches used to analyze epigenetic mechanisms of inflammation shown to increase HIV risk in uninfected infants born to HIV positive mothers.Brief Bio:Dr. Ivana Parker is a Fulbright Scholar who recently completed a year-long study at the University of Cape Town in South Africa. Her project assessed the risk of a commonly used tuberculosis vaccine, BCG, on HIV susceptibility in infants using proteomics and systems biology approaches.  She completed a two-year post-doctoral fellowship as an American Society for Microbiology postdoctoral fellow at the Centers for Disease Control within the Division of HIV/AIDS Prevention.  At the CDC, she evaluated the impact of antiretroviral therapy (ART) on current diagnostic assay approaches and identified trends to optimize assay design. Ivana received her PhD in Bioengineering from Georgia Tech in 2015. Her thesis investigated the effects of pro-atherogenic shear stress, HIV proteins, and antiretroviral therapies on the vasculature using in vivo and in vitro models. During her time at Georgia Tech, she received the NSF graduate research fellowship and was selected to be a trainee on an NIH Cell and Tissue Engineering Training Grant. She also received a Whitaker Grant to develop artificial aortic valves in Cape Town, South Africa and facilitated set-up of a lab in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia during her PhD training. Ivana earned her BS in mechanical engineering from the University of Florida in 2009.Source: ENGINEERING TOOLS TO CHARACTERIZE IMMUNE RESPONSES IMPORTANT FOR HIV PREVENTIONConnect with Dr Parker on Twitter: @DRIKParkerAs we dig deep into making this year the best possible- we want to encourage you to sit still.

This week's podcast kicks off with a discussion of the recently released class profiles for UCLA / Anderson and Cornell / Johnson. Both programs showcase impressive incoming students and stats overall, but there are some notable trends to observe around application volume and an uptick in the percentage of international students at these US-based programs. This potentially leads to a downward pressure on gender diversity, as the international pool traditionally has fewer women (as a percentage) than the domestic pool. Alex noted the fast-approaching R1 deadlines for this season, and Graham highlighted the Adcom Q&As that were recently published for Washington / Foster, Maryland / Smith, Ohio State / Fisher, SMU / Cox, Boston College / Carroll, Manchester / Alliance and IMD. Graham also highlighted our recent Real Humans Alumni event, which included alums working at Deloitte, Disney, Amazon, Apple, Microsoft and BCG. Graham then pitched the upcoming essay workshop series, which includes three events on September 14, September 21 and September 28. And finally, Graham and Alex also chatted about the upcoming private webinar for Clear Admit+ members, slated for August 29th.  You can join CA+ and the webinar here: https://www.clearadmit.com/clearadmit-plus-members/ As always, this episode features in-depth breakdowns of three candidacies - all from ApplyWire this week: First up, Alex chooses an Indian candidate who worked in investment banking before building an EdTech startup with $1m in revenue to date and some substantial impact. With a rather unorthodox 10 years of work experience, they are seeking a top FT MBA program in the U.S., but have not yet taken the GMAT. Although there are several challenges to consider, Alex and Graham suggest that targeting the first rounds would be helpful, if the candidate can (move up the GMAT), spreading their list of target programs will also help (MIT / Sloan has a deadline of September 29). This week's second candidate has a super GMAT, strong engineering academics, and what appears to be strong work experience in the Aerospace and Defense industry. This led to a discussion on their gender, and if and why that might matter; Alex thinks they should also target Stanford. This week's third candidate is an enlisted Army linguist working in the intelligence field. They also have a super GMAT. We think they might adjust their target programs a little, and perhaps fine-tune their goals, but potentially there is a lot to like. This episode was recorded in Paris, France and Cornwall, England.

T1D Exchange is a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving outcomes for the entire T1D population. https://t1dexchange.org/stacey/ XX The Inflation Reduction act is now law.. and that means a big change for Medicare patients. Among other things, it limits insulin copays to $35 per month for Medicare Part D beneficiaries starting in 2023 and caps annual out-of-pocket cap on Part D prescription drugs at 2-thousand dollars starting in 2025. Medicare will also now have the ability to negotiate the costs of certain prescription drugs. Democrats say they will try to bring a stand alone proposal to ap the price of insulin for a broader population this fall. XXDid the Tuberculosis vaccine protect people with type 1 from Covid and other infectious diseases? Researchers at Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital have published a new paper looking at the BCG or tuberculosis vaccine. In a double-blind, placebo-controlled study of patients with type 1 diabetes conducted at the start of the pandemic, before COVID vaccines were available, only 12.5 percent of placebo-treated individuals and 1 percent of BCG-treated individuals had confirmed COVID-19, yielding a vaccine effectiveness of 92 percent. The BCG-vaccinated group also displayed protective effects against other infectious diseases, including fewer symptoms, lesser severity and fewer infectious disease events per patient. No BCG-related systemic adverse events occurred. The participants in the COVID trial had previously enrolled in a clinical trial testing the effectiveness of the BCG vaccine for type 1 diabetes. Participants in the test group had received multiple vaccinations before the onset of the pandemic in early 2020. https://hms.harvard.edu/news/tb-drug-vs-covid XX Students at the American University in Cairo have developed a device that non-invasively measures blood glucose levels, winning first place in 2022 Johns Hopkins Healthcare Design Competition. The device uses near-infrared spectroscopy (speck-troh-sku-pee). It's called GlucoClip and there's also a mobile app. . The project took a year, with the team having designed a prototype and testing it on more than 100 people. Amazing that this took students less than a year.. we'll see if the large commercial companies can accomplish getting something like this to the marketplace. https://www.egyptindependent.com/auc-students-win-first-place-at-johns-hopkins-healthcare-design-competition-2022/ XX Interesting progress on glucose-responsive insulin, also called smart insulin. These researchers envision ultra-stable proteins containing a glucagon analog “stapled” to an insulin analog. Preliminary studies are moving along at Indiana University. As the name indicates, this would be insulin that only responds when there is too much glucose in the blood, making the risk of low blood sugar much less likely. Nice to see some options may be possible, last year Lilly bought Protomer Technologies which had smart insulin in pre-clinical development. https://diabetesresearchconnection.org/projects/fusion-protein/ XX New CEO over at Beta Bionics – the company behind the iLet Bionic Pancreas, currently in front of the FDA. Sean Saint will be the new CEO, Martha Goldberg Aronson was interim, we talked to her for the podcast a few months ago, will remain on the Beta Bionics Board of Directors. Saint is an engineer, entrepreneur, diabetes technologist and innovator, and lives with type 1. He started at Medtronic and ahs also been at Dexcom and Tandem. It was after working at all those diabetes companies that he developed type 1 as an adult.. and founded Companion Medical, maker of the InPen. Really interesting story and I hope he'll come on the podcast soon. https://www.globenewswire.com/news-release/2022/08/15/2498485/0/en/Beta-Bionics-Appoints-Sean-Saint-as-CEO-and-Board-Member.html XX But with the troubles of the second quarter solidly in the rearview mirror, Tandem is back in optimist mode, with a rosy outlook toward sales of both existing and upcoming technologies. Chief among the latter category is the Mobi insulin pump. The device is about half the size of Tandem's flagship t:slim pump and can be fully controlled by a user's smartphone. It'll also represent “the first novel form factor launched in our space since we introduced t:slim a decade ago,” Sheridan said on the call. “We are in the final stages of testing, as well as drafting the submission, and intend to submit a 510(k) to the FDA this quarter,” the chief executive said. He noted that Tandem is already preparing for the pint-sized pump's commercial launch following FDA clearance, which it's tentatively expecting to snag in the first half of 2023. In the meantime, Sheridan said Tandem is also working closely with partners Dexcom and Abbott to integrate its insulin pumps with their newest continuous glucose monitors: Abbott's FreeStyle Libre 3, which was cleared by the FDA just a few months ago, and Dexcom's G7 device, whose own FDA review is still underway after an agency request for more information.

Researchers from the University of Geneva found that a decline in one molecule indicates a loss of functional beta cells. This molecule, which can be easily detected by a blood test, may be utilized to detect the onset of diabetes in at-risk individuals. These researchers say this discovery opens new avenues for preventing diabetes, particularly for at-risk people. A simple blood sampling followed by an inexpensive specific test could identify a potential diabetes onset in these people, prompting actions to be taken before the situation becomes irreversible.” https://www.techexplorist.com/molecule-identify-development-diabetes/53106/ XX XX The T1D Exchange Registry is a research study conducted online over time, designed to foster innovation and improve the lives of people with T1D. The platform is open to both adults and children with T1D living in the U.S. Personal information remains confidential and participation is fully voluntary. Once enrolled, participants will complete annual surveys and have the opportunity to sign up for other studies on specific topics related to T1D. The registry aims to improve knowledge of T1D, accelerate the discovery and development of new treatments and technologies, and generate evidence to support policy or insurance changes that help the T1D community. By sharing opinions, experiences and data, patients can help advance meaningful T1D treatment, care and policy. The registry is now available on the T1D Exchange website and is simple to navigate, mobile and user-friendly. For more information or to register, go to www.t1dregistry.org/stacey XX Abbott and Weight Watchers are teaming up. They've set up what they call a “strategic partnership” that will help people living with diabetes better understand and manage both their condition and their weight. The release says both companies are bringing their marketed products together to help patients, while also boosting their use. The partnership will start in earnest from next year and initially focus on the U.S. https://www.fiercepharma.com/marketing/abbott-teams-weightwatchers-digital-diabetes-journey-health XX Next week we're talking back to school! The wonderful diabetes educator Anna Sabino from Finding Smiles coaching will join me to talk 504, remote monitoring, supplies and lots more. The long format episode out right now is with Patients For Affordable Drugs about the bill that passed the Senate this week. The insulin copay cap was removed, but what does it really mean for medication prices? Listen wherever you get your podcasts That's In the News for this week.. if you like it, please share it!
