10:30-11:30 am Interconnected Workplace - Privacy and Wellbeing – finding a good Balance
In organizations all over the world, people are facing brand-new problems that require sharing information and putting knowledge together in new ways. Collaboration has become the big engine for progress and innovation. Although workplaces today make it seemingly easy for people to collaborate, leaders are uncertain of what to do next so they create group spaces and add technology but is too much togetherness invading our employee’s privacy? How can property professionals satisfy and attract tenants with that perfect balance? In addition, leading organizations know that improved employee wellbeing not only helps to be healthier and lowers healthcare costs, it also helps them to be more productive, creative and innovative. An “interconnected workplace,” offers employees choice and control over where and how they work.
Presenters – Megan Little, Director of Business Development at General Office Products, Lynne Sullivan, Director of the Targeted Solutions Group sales team for Steelcase North America. Steelcase Inc.

Course 4 - 1 hour of CEU APPROVED!
11:30 am-12:30 pm Crowdfunding and Commercial Real Estate
According to Forbes Magazine, “Behind stocks, bonds and cash, commercial real estate has emerged as the fourth largest asset class in the U.S. over the last few decades”.  With the passage of the JOBS Act in 2012, the way was paved for real estate crowdfunding, a new method for individual investors to invest in real estate for as little as a few thousand dollars. So, how does one get started in crowdfunding? What are the resources available and what is the financial and sociological impact? Are these crowdfunding opportunities more on the local or national level and what regulations are in place to make things happen?
