Sally and Matt discuss the advancement of technologies and successful utilisation of data and what this means for the future of sustainable real estate.

In May 2016, she was appointed Head of Strategy and Investments. Subsequently, she has expanded her role to include data and insights and the Group's Smart technology initiatives. She joined the Executive Committee in 2015. Sally is also a Non-executive Director of Equiem, the leading tenant experience digital platform provider.   Previous Experience: Before joining British Land Sally worked at Cadbury Schweppes where she held a variety of roles over ten years including Director of Investor Relations, Director of Communications and Finance Director Group Sales and Marketing. Prior to that she worked in the City.   Matt Webster, Head of Environmental Sustainability   As Head of Environmental Sustainability, Matt leads the environmental performance of British Land's standing portfolio and development pipeline, responsible for implementing our pathway to net zero carbon by 2030 and wider environmental sustainability agenda. Matt works across the business to ensure our assets are designed, built and operated to the highest environmental standards. Matt led British Land to a 55% reduction in its operational energy intensity achieved in 2019. He has held various roles across the business, including establishing our approach to wellbeing and most recently developing and implementing our approach to smart buildings and digital placemaking. Recent development projects include the delivery of British Land's first net zero development at 100 Liverpool Street and leading sustainability at Canada Water - a 53 acre mixed use regeneration project. Prior to joining British Land, Matt held various sustainability consulting and banking roles. Matt has a Master's degree from Forum for the Future.   About British Land:Our portfolio of high quality UK commercial property is focused on London Campuses and Retail & Fulfilment assets throughout the UK. We own or manage a portfolio valued at £14.3bn (British Land share: £10.5bn) as at 31 March 2022 making us one of Europe's largest listed real estate investment companies.    We create Places People Prefer, delivering the best, most sustainable places for our customers and communities. Our strategy is to leverage our best in class platform and proven expertise in development, repositioning and active management, investing behind two key themes: Campuses and Retail & Fulfilment.    Our three Campuses at Broadgate, Paddington Central and Regent's Place are dynamic neighbourhoods, attracting growth customers and sectors, and offering some of the best connected, highest quality and most sustainable space in London. We are delivering our fourth Campus at Canada Water, where we have planning consent to deliver 5m sq ft of residential, commercial, retail and community space over 53 acres. Our Campuses account for 67% of our portfolio.    Retail & Fulfilment accounts for 33% of the portfolio and is focused on retail parks which are aligned to the growth of convenience, online and last mile fulfilment. We are complementing this with urban logistics primarily in London, focused on development-led opportunities.    Sustainability is embedded throughout our business. In 2020, we set out our sustainability strategy which focuses on two time-critical areas where British Land can create the most benefit: making our whole portfolio net zero carbon by 2030, and partnering to grow social value and wellbeing in the communities where we operate.    Further details can be found on the British Land website at www.britishland.com   About Our Host Louisa Dickins Louisa is the co-founder of LMRE, which has rapidly become the market leading global PropTech recruitment platform and search consultancy with operations across North America, United Kingdom, Europe and Asia-Pacific.

At LMRE we are fully committed at all times to exceed the expectations of our candidates and clients by providing the very best advice and by unlocking exclusive opportunities across our global network in the UK, Europe, North America and Asia-Pacific.   Timestamps: [2:10] Sally: How did you get into your strategy, technology and digital role?  It has been so fascinating to be able to combine strategy with all things digital and technology and I am now in charge of building tech, insights and the whole technology stack. My interest in technology started when I realised how technology was changing the shape of the property industry. [3:50] Matt: Could you tell us what your role at British Land entails? I have been at British Land for a number of years now and worked in different sections around the business, but always with an angle on sustainability. I was retained to deliver the 55% energy target and we were very proud to be able to deliver that over a 10 year period from 2009 to 2019. We were early adopters of the idea that it was our responsibility to collaborate with customers to work towards understanding our carbon footprint and start utilising data and technologies. [5:35] Sally: Could you elaborate on your digital strategy? We started working on it in 2015 and created a smart team after realising that digitalising buildings was going to become a big thing. We wanted to create a strategy with a very focused approach on improving people's experience of our real estate, building greater understanding through data and driving greater efficiency. [6:58] Matt: How does the sustainability strategy fit into the digital strategy? Our latest strategy runs from 2019 to 2030 and is balanced between environmental and social issues. Our target is to reach net zero carbon by 2030, as an operator and developer of space our two big sources of carbon are embodied from the development of our assets and operational which is related to the energy from running our assets. We are aiming for a 50% reduction in our embodied carbon and a 75% reduction in our operational carbon. The digital plan will help us deliver these ambitious targets. [8:45] Matt: Tell us about your current development projects and how they're helping socially and environmentally? 100 Liverpool Street is our first net zero development, it has benefited from significant reuse of the previous structure of the building and we worked really hard to design without carbon throughout the process. A lot of thought has gone into how it is going to operate once it's a live building. It's our first building to deliver some of the things in our digital strategy as well.  Canada Water is a really exciting project that we are embedding sustainability principles into. The building is implementing our smart building design guide which will help the building run more efficiently by retrieving useful data out of it during the design stage. [12:35] Sally: What technologies are working for British Land and how are you utilising them? Smart enabling a building makes it digitally capable, the key for that is to allow us to get data out of the building in such a way that we can surface it through a single platform. The data allows us to see what is working and manage the building more efficiently over time. Machine learning and AI helps us control the building to drive more efficiencies. We're working with a company called Facilio, they have built this entire data platform for us which things like AI can sit on. The Equiem platform works alongside Facilio to see how and when rooms in buildings are being used. [16:08] Matt: Is there anything you would like to add to the data side of smart buildings? We have learnt a lot in the development and delivery of 100 Liverpool Street. Installing smart metre systems lets us know exactly where and when energy is consumed in a building. The system will also communicate the data to a wider platform, allowing us to take a software approach to the building.  With this data we can apply it at a portfolio level rather than replicating it within each building. [19:29] Sally: What do we need to tackle in the future? We are now turning our attention to our old developments, ultimately we're all going to have to think about retrofitting our old buildings.  We have to figure out a way of delivering this digital transformation much more cheaply, especially with the rising energy costs. [22:15] Matt: What lies ahead in terms of environmental sustainability? People are finally listening to this issue and it is really important to make sure we've got the resources and skill sets to respond to it. We have been tackling operational carbon for a long time, we need more understanding and data surrounding embodied carbon so we have a more rapid process to help reduce it in the next few years.   L – Touch on the main lessons you have learnt throughout your career. Sally: What stands out for me at companies that I have worked for is the culture value and leadership. British Land and Cadbury are the two places where I have enjoyed and achieved the most. M - Please give a mention to anyone / product / service. Matt: Our own internal digital placemaking team, they have been working really hard working on the vision and delivering 100 Liverpool Street. R – What has been the most  rewarding  aspect of working within the digitalisation space? Sally: Working with this small team at British Land, they've been brilliant at navigating their way through a very complex landscape in a cost effective way with an incredible set of products. E - What are you excited about in the future of environmental sustainability? Matt: I'm excited about the recognition that ESG is now gaining and the seriousness that people are starting to approach the subject with. Also, the digitalisation of real estate because that will have a significant part to play in the decarbonisation of the built environment.    Sponsors Launch Your Own Podcast A Podcast Company is the leading podcast production and strategic content company for brands, organisations, institutions, individuals, and entrepreneurs.

In this episode, Jeannette talks to Duncan O´Rourke who is the Chief Executive Officer of Northern Europe at Accor. He talks about his early life, living in South Africa, and then being educated in an English boarding school. How these things shaped the man he became and the career path he chose to follow. Duncan explains what it is like to run a brand that serves multiple sectors of the travel business. They also talk about how to build a strong team even though there is a severe shortage of talented people, at the moment. Dealing with the challenge of climbing the corporate ladder. As well as learning to switch gears and stop being the CEO when you are at home.   KEY TAKEAWAYS What luxury is and means to people is constantly changing. Personalised service is a key component of what people expect from a luxury brand. You can't manage the IBIS brand the same way you manage the Raffles Hotel brand. But attention to detail is essential at all levels of the hotel industry. Climbing the corporate ladder is stressful. For every new role, you will have holes in your knowledge. Being honest about what you don't know is important. Stress is a part of respecting the challenge that you are facing. Surround yourself with people who are better than you. Employ self-starters who have sound values. There is a massive shortage of talented staff within the travel industry. Duncan estimates between 10 and 15%. During times of crisis, clear and regular communication is vital. Diversifying your team must not be about quotas. You just need to be genuinely open to hiring the right person for the job.   BEST MOMENTS ‘For me, luxury is limited by definition, it is personalised. ´ ‘During those times when you have those sleepless nights, remind yourself what is going right.' ‘Our clients are diverse, so we embrace diversity and think it's important.' ‘Pretty good is not good enough. You always want to deliver your best.'   This is the perfect time to get focused on what YOU want to really achieve in your business, career, and life. It's never too late to be BRAVE and BOLD and unlock your inner BRILLIANCE.

She is also a leading organizer for the FIRST Collective's stop the sweeps efforts. Press Release Sunday, August 28, 2022, stated “FIRST COLLECTIVE TO HOLD A SERIES OF DEMONSTRATIONS ON BEHALF OF HOUSELESS CAMP COLUMBUS, OH-- Members of the FIRST Collective will hold demonstrations at the homes of several elected officials this afternoon regarding the forthcoming September eviction of Camp Shameless, located at 897 E Mound Street. Camp Shameless is a houseless encampment established on the near east side of Columbus this past spring. This afternoon we will be holding space at multiple locations demanding the following: 1. Cancel the eviction for 897 E Mound Street. (asks are edited for word count) 2. Move all homelessness matters out of the jurisdiction of the Department of Development and to the Department of Public Health. 3. End the Environmental Remediation Contract associated with encampment sweeps. 4. Create a committee to review and revise practices and policies around homelessness. This committee must be inclusive of mutual aid and community organizations that work with this population, as well as folks currently experiencing homelessness. 5. Make space and funding available for an overnight warming center during cold months. The camp grew from a warming center we created in order to supplement the woeful inadequate resources for warming centers and inhumane conditions in the homeless shelters across the city. Access to buildings that might be used for warming centers from late fall to early spring would greatly increase the well-being of our most vulnerable populations.

Good afternoon, I'm _____ with today's episode of EZ News. **Tai-Ex opening ** The Tai-Ex opened down 11-points this morning from yesterday's close, at 14,790 on turnover of $2.6-billion N-T. Taiwan's benchmark stock index plunged 1.94 percent to close below 15,000 points on Thursday after U.S. stocks finished lower overnight for a fourth straight session. The sell-off took a toll on the bellwether electronics sector, which led the broader market down, losing 2.35 percent. Contract chipmaker TSMC, the most heavily weighted stock on the local market, led the market downturn, falling 2.87 percent to close at its lowest in nearly one month. Analysts say the decline reflects recent hawkish (鷹派的) comments by U.S. Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell who reiterated the American central bank's commitment to contain inflation by tightening the economy. **Typhoon Hinnamnor Weakens After Sea Warning (10AM Update) ** The CWB says Typhoon Hinnamnor has weakened, after the bureau issued a sea warning earlier this morning. The Central Weather Bureau says the storm is currently located 470-km east of Eluanbi, moving north-northwest at a speed of 6 to 11-km per hour. Hinnamnor currently has a radius of 250-km, and forecasters say the storm may increase in size. The bureau says if the storm veers (轉向) westward in its path, a land warning may still be issued, but much depends on the the size of the typhoon at that time. The CWB has also issued an extremely heavy rain advisory for the northern cities of Taipei, New Taipei, Taoyuan, as well as Hsinchu County. And a heavy rain advisory has been issued for Keelung City, Yilan County and Miaoli County. The advisories are expected to remain in effect through tonight. **Golden Horse Awards winners named lifetime achievement awards recipients ** **Return to **Table of contents Filmmakers Lai Cheng-ying and Chang Chao-tang will be honored with lifetime achievement awards at the 59th Golden Horse Awards. The award's Executive Committee made the announcement yesterday, for the event scheduled for Nov. 19-th. Both filmmakers are masters of their craft with a total of five Golden Horse Awards combined. The 92-year-old Lai, 92, is one of the pioneers helping Taiwan's movie industry transition (轉變) into shooting in color after being sent to Japan to learn color filming techniques. He won three Golden Horse Awards for Best Cinematography. And 78-year-old Chang Chao-tang transitioned from film cinematography to documentary filmmaking and videography education, influencing the likes of Australian-born Hong Kong cinematographer Christopher Doyle and Taiwanese directors Chung Mong-hong and Huang Hsin-yao. He is also the one of the founders of the biennial Taiwan International Documentary Festival . **US Capitol Riot ** The House panel investigating the Jan. 6 insurrection (暴亂) is seeking information from former House Speaker Newt Gingrich about his communications with senior advisers to then-President Trump in the days leading up to the 2021 attack on the Capitol. AP correspondent Ben Thomas reports. **Peru Investigates Transgender Man's Death ** Prosecutors in Peru have opened an investigation into the death of a Peruvian transgender man who died this month after being detained on the Indonesian tourist island of Bali. Peru's Public Ministry said Wednesday that the probe by prosecutors who specialize in (專門從事) human rights will include an autopsy on Rodrigo Ventocilla. That has been demanded by LGBTQ activists amid allegations by the man's family that he was tortured by Indonesian police. Authorities in Indonesia deny those claims, saying Ventocilla was not abused or mistreated. They say he died in a hospital Aug. 11 after complaining of stomach pains and showing signs of depression while in detention.

Do you have Conservative political leanings? Are you perhaps a Christian? Have you ever wondered why Republican representatives always seem to drop the ball when they have the power. Have you noticed there's just certain things Conservative pundits won't talk about? Have you been absolutely disgusted with the behavior of TV Evangelists? Have you ever wondered if there was collusion with the opposition behind the scenes?     What if I told you that in 1981, there was a clandestine group of big money/big influence so-called Conservatives who billed themselves as "The Council For National Policy" (CNP) & that it was put together by familiar names like Tim Lahaye from the Pre-Trib Rapture Propaganda Left Behind movies, Beer Mogul Joseph Coors, Oil Men Nelson Bunker Hunt, & T. Cullen Davis (Davis ater charged w/ the murder of man, & his daughter), Richard Mellon Scaife, heir to the Carnegie Mellon fortune, & the late Sun Myung Moon of the Unification Church who built one of the biggest cults in the world, even proclaiming himself God, saying Jesus Christ failed his mission on the cross, & Moon himself was the true savior?     What if I said, other founding members included Jerry Falwell, Jimmy Swaggert, Pat Robertson, Bill Bright (Campus Crusade For Christ), Josh McDowell, John Haggee, Paul Crouch-TBN, Elizabeth Claire Prophet from the cult Church Universal, & Triumphant, Oliver North known for gems like Iran/Contra, FEMA, & Rex 84? If you don't know what the latter is, look immediately.     What if I said, the founders also included a handful of Council On Foreign Relations members (CFR) like National Review founder William F. Buckley Jr. also Skull, & Bones, & CIA, J. Peter Grace, & Arnold de Borchgrave? Borchgrave was also an editor for Sun Myung Moon's Washington Examiner, & UPI.     What if I told you that the Heritage Foundation was also created by these charlatans as well as *ALEC, which is 90% corporate, & was behind NAFTA, & who openly advocated for the merger of public, & private sectors? What if I mentioned Conservative talk radio hosts like the late Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Mark Levin, Michael Medved, Dennis Prager, & even stand out Alex Jones have been speakers, & members? And what if I told you Judicial Watch's Tom Fitton, the founder of Newsmax Chris Ruddy, Freedomworks' Charlie Kirk, & Media Research Center's Brent Bozell are all currently on this organization's board of directors?     Well, I'm telling you all of this, & I'm also letting you know, Donald Trump, Mitt Romney, Mike Pence, Rand Paul, & even Ron Paul have spoken before them, & may, or may not be on the current roster. So, if you've ever thought that there could be more to your political party than what's seen on the outside, this episode is for you.   The Council For National Policy (CNP) Secondary Group-    Conservative Action Project (CAP)    The CNP was founded in 1981 when Tim LaHaye, a leader of Moral Majority, proposed the idea to wealthy Texan T. Cullen Davis. Davis contacted billionaire Nelson Bunker Hunt, and from that point on they began recruiting members. By 1984, the Council had 400 members. Joe and Holly Coors were early members ofthe CNP. Their names appear on a 1984 confidential list of members. Also on the list is Lt.

Surveys reveal an equity gap in estate planning.  Although everyone should have an estate plan, Americans in communities of color are less likely to have plans in place.  Without powers of attorney and health care directives, families may find it hard to manage the affairs of their incapacitated elders.  And when elders die without a trust or will, it may be difficult to keep the home and other assets in the family.Verleana Green-Telusca, a lawyer in Oakland, describes how she became an estate planner and the innovative community outreach program that she developed.  In 2014, Verleana founded The Estate and Retirement Planning Specialists, which offers free educational programs regarding estate and retirement planning.  She uses actors to dramatize the importance of estate planning by playing out a family drama.  Drawing on her experience, she shares thoughts on expanding access to estate planning.About Our Guest:Verleana Green-Telusca founded and operates an estate planning law firm.  She received her bachelor's degree from UC Berkeley and her law degree from the University of San Francisco School of Law.  She discovered a passion for estate planning and went on to receive an LLM in Taxation from Golden Gate University Law School.  She has taught Elder Law at USF School of Law.  She recently received a Jefferson Award for her community service.About Our Host:Jeffrey Galvin is a lawyer at Downey Brand LLP based in Sacramento.  He litigates trust and estate disputes around Northern California.  Jeff created and edits the blog Trust on Trial, which covers California trust and estate litigation.  He is a member the Executive Committee of the Trusts and Estates Section of the California Lawyers Association.Trust Me is produced by Foley Marra Studios.Thank you for listening to Trust Me!

GrassRoot Ohio - Conversations with every-day People working on important issues here in Columbus and all around Ohio. Carolyn Harding with Jonathan Beard and Noel Williams, co-organizers with the Columbus Coalition for Rent Control. Jonathan Beard is a member of the Coalition's Executive Committee, and a community development professional with long-time exposure to fair housing issues: his father, Charles A. Beard, testified in the landmark 1973 housing discrimination case United States of America vs. City of Parma, where the court found Parma liable of violating the Fair Housing Act. After moving to Columbus to receive a Masters in Public Administration from what is now known as the Glenn School at OSU, from 1995 - 2017 Jon served as President and CEO of Columbus Compact Corporation, where he raised more than $40 million to invest in the redevelopment of Columbus's most distressed neighborhoods. In that role, Jon financed and engaged directly in new construction and rehabilitation of single-family and multifamily housing as he led the city's largest comprehensive community development initiative since the 1970's.. Jon has been a landlord for more than 25 years as both a private citizen and president of the Columbus Compact, a nonprofit corporation, and has signed more than 100 leases as landlord over that period. As a public policy expert, real estate developer, banker and landlord Jon has in-depth knowledge of issues related to housing. Noel has been advocating for people's rights via labor and community organizations for over 20+ years. Noel is the past president of the Columbus NAACP, past president of labor group which is part of Ohio Civil Service Employees Association (OCSEA) and is currently the VP President for the BREAD organization which stands for Building Responsibility Equity and Dignity. BREAD is made up of 44 diverse congregations which are racially, geographically, socially and economically diverse. BREAD holds officials accountable to implement proven solutions to community problems such as disrupting the school to prison pipeline by pushing Columbus City Schools to implement a program called Restorative Practices. In my recent canvassing in Columbus Ohio, I asked folks what are their most concerning issues right now. They answered, reproductive rights, affordable housing and gun violence. Jonathan and Noel, you are leading out with a citizen-led ballot initiative for the city of Columbus, Ohio, to give citizens the right to affordable rent.
