13. Comfortable being uncomfortable w/ Jacqui O'Dea of GPT Group
Jacqui O’Dea is the Chief Risk Officer of GPT Group, one of Australia’s largest diversified property groups with $24.5 billion of retail, office and logistics property under management. Jacqui transitioned from Deputy General Counsel to CRO in March 2019, giving her about 10 months to prepare for arguably the biggest risk challenge of a generation. We hear how Jacqui skilled up quickly, gathered support from within and outside the organization, and has helped this major landlord navigate the challenge that is the pandemic. Key observations for us from this discussion are how well Jacqui had managed a transition to a new discipline at a senior level, how well GPT has supported her in doing so, and how she has used her newness to the role as an advantage. We hope you enjoy the conversation.

12. Critical Shift w/ Dr Andrea Blake of QUT
Dr Andrea Blake is a Senior Lecturer in property economics from the Queensland University of Technology Business School, and in this episode we unpack her post pandemic predictions. In sum: we are witnessing a critical shift of power from the city centres to the suburbs. Andrea brings a wide range of real estate expertise to the table in this episode, with research in such diverse topics as the impact on rural land values of carbon sequestration to the outcomes of projects involving seniors living being created on school campuses. But following recent articles about what she sees as longer term trends arising out of the pandemic on the real estate market, we thought we’d get her on the pod and dig a little deeper. And as we did so a consistent theme emerges – that of structural change being under way which will see a broader distribution of commercial activity throughout greater city areas and a stronger focus on local community.

11. Happy Staying Digital - The Millennial Perspective w/ Fiona Thatcher, Aaron Brooks and Barton Donaldson
Fiona Thatcher, Aaron Brooks and Barton Donaldson are three talented, aspiring young Australian lawyers working in London. As with most lawyers, since about March of this year, that work has been based at home. We hear a lot of commentary on how people are adapting their work around the pandemic but we wanted to hear from this younger cohort directly. Fiona, Aaron and Barton talk of how life was and how it now is, the things they hope the pandemic has changed for good, and of a future of work they see that is not constrained by a physical office. This was an eye-opening discussion for me which makes me ponder whether the rush to return to the office post pandemic is going to be as strong as many Landlords would like.

Overview Kernel Property is one of Australia’s leading tenant advisory firms, with a strong track record in working for professional services firms, particularly law firms.

This is the third in a series of episodes focusing on emerging future trends in commercial real estate driven by the pandemic.

This is the second in a series of episodes focusing on emerging future trends in commercial real estate driven by the pandemic In this discussion, Jen shares a range of very relevant perspectives, including the PCA’s involvement in the pandemic driven regulation on commercial real estate and the outcome reached; how the broad spectrum of the PCA’s members are currently faring; how the PCA itself is easing its way back into the office (for now?); and what the PCA’s events business looks like now, and might look like in future, and extrapolating from there to how we will all engage physically in the future.

7. Innovation Process Makes Better Lawyers, with Bradley Price of Frasers Property Industrial
Bradley Price, General Counsel for Frasers Property Industrial, joins the podcast to talk about innovation within the legal function and the broader business. Frasers has a very impressive framework for driving innovation, which Brad shares with us, but three things from this discussion really stood out. First is the power of incremental innovation across the entire organisation. Small things matter. Second is the importance of involving the customer (both internal and external) in the innovation process. Third is how the process of innovation, where an answer is not immediately apparent, has challenged Brad’s legal problem-solving mindset and, ultimately, made him a better lawyer. Timestamps 2:40 – Overview of the Frasers business: history (Australand) and current structure 5:10 – Brad is a man with a sense of humour 7:10 – The innovation spectrum 10:10 – Innovation at Frasers – a breakdown of the process 13:00 – A legal team ‘embedded’ within the business 15:40 – Physical office layout impacting on internal collaboration 20:15 – How innovative ideas are sourced and progressed at Frasers 25:45 – Customer input in the innovation process 29:40 – How innovation process has made Brad a better lawyer 31:55 – Collaboration within Frasers at the international level 33:10 – Brad shows off his Spanish!

5. Grass Roots Innovation, with Kim Richards, Qld State Member for Redlands
Kim is a former COO of both Cox Architecture and Architectus with involvement in projects including The Gallery of Modern Art in Brisbane, Sunshine Coast University Hospital and the Singapore Marina Bay Helix Bridge. But Kim's career took an interesting turn about 5 years ago when she was prompted into action, beginning her transition from architecture into the world of politics. We speak with Kim about this transition, what it is like to be a local member, and how this differs from her life in the private sector. This discussion opened a can of worms of innovation at the grass roots level in Redlands, including an autonomous bus pilot program currently underway, and a collaboration with QUT (Queensland University of Technology) to test technology which creates hydrogen fuel for vehicles, ultimately for export overseas. A wide ranging and engaging discussion.

4. Data security crash course + big data applications in real world scenarios, with Stephen Kho of Micro Focus
In the latest episode of The Field Trip podcast, we speak with Stephen Kho of Micro Focus. Micro Focus provides big data analytics and data security solutions to some of the world’s biggest companies, including Uber and Facebook. Stephen talks us through some of the problems he helps customer overcome (which became a crash course in enterprise data security!) and then goes on to explain practical applications of big data by taking a deep dive into three different industry use cases – airports, aged care, and public transport. So if you are keen to understand more about the foundational technologies that underpin the hype, and like to see how different industries are applying data to solve their biggest problems, I think this is worth a listen.

2. Is this the Airbnb for commercial office space? with Jim Groves of Rubberdesk
In the second episode of the Field trip podcast, we talk to Jim Groves, CEO of Rubberdesk, the leading online marketplace for flexible office space in the Australian market. With current listings exceeding 15,000 desks, Rubberdesk is injecting flexibility of use into the traditional commercial leasing framework, benefiting landlords and tenants alike. What I found most interesting, however, was the community aspect to Rubberdesk - how it is facilitating strong and diverse business networks amongst its hosts and users - organically built from the ground up. This led into a discussion about the untapped potential of suburban office precincts, both now and into the future.
