About the Talk

Few of us expected that in October 2022 we'd still be dealing with fallout from the pandemic, but here we are. Are you prepared for the uncertainty that lies ahead? In this opening keynote address, Henry Chamberlain, president and chief operating officer of BOMA International, will help us peer into the future through the lens of the top three trends that are torpedoing business as usual. Hear how environmental, social, and governance (ESG); resilient, high-performance, sustainable design; and workforce development priorities will shape the business decisions of building owners. We'll also learn how to prepare for the impacts of those decisions on projects and practice in the coming years.

1. Reorganize the implications of industry trends driving business decisions for building owners
2. Analyze the impact of these trends on the entire project team
3. Converse with owners and other team members about ESG, resilient design, and workforce development
4. Integrate ESG, resilient design, and workforce development strategies into practice
