Leaving a sunny London this morning, I was prompted to remember an umbrella lest we forget the guaranteed rain we always experience in Manchester for BCSC. The dates changed but the weather hasn’t! Couldn’t find any JLL Brollies in Warwick Street so I’ll be making a dash for it.
First chance for our new enlarged team to impress. Our client dinner on Tuesday is over subscribed so it should be lively. We are hosting a Retail 2020 debate tomorrow with Jeremy Collins and Andrew Jones as our guest speakers. Expecting the latter to be very vocal about over hyped book values and we may even get controversial by giving a house view on how much of the existing retail stock we believe is obsolescent.
Time to face up to some of the challenges ahead so we can help bring about some regeneration!
Will keep you posted
