Chris Kelly is Co-Founder and Chief Innovation Officer of Convene, the fastest-growing network of full-service, tech-enabled meeting, event, and flexible workspaces. Mike Petrusky asks Chris about his vision for the future of the built environment and how shared services, spaces and technologies are impacting the world of commercial real estate and office buildings. There is a paradigm shift taking place in workplace infrastructure that is changing how facility management and CRE leaders will need to manage their portfolios to meet the needs of their employees. Chris explains how technology enablement and the shared economy are on a collision course with the largest asset class in the world and that this intersection is reconfiguring how the real estate industry will work. Mike and Chris discover they have a mutual appreciation of talented drummers like Stewart Copeland (which leads to “The Police” version of podcast karaoke) while they offer some great insights and inspiration for workplace innovators everywhere.
