Anticipate London was conceived from discussions with a future-focused advisory board, including leaders in security, safety, facilities management, and property from FTSE 250 companies and the public sector. 

These conversations highlighted the need for a new forum to address macro-level issues such as technological innovation, digitalisation, emerging societal and global risks, climate change, and government legislation. 

Chris Edwards, Group Director commented, “Anticipate will become the definitive event of the year, reflecting on the past 12 months of safety, security, and property changes and discussing their implications for the future. 

Anticipate embodies the fundamental shifts in our markets, where traditional roles and responsibilities are evolving in response to global events like COVID-19, changing work patterns, and climate change, placing property and people leaders at the forefront of business strategy.”
