Today over 450 senior level attendees hailing from 23 countries will be welcomed to London for CoreNet Global's annual EMEA Summit (September 17-19) the third time in its history that it has been held in the capital.
Taking the theme 'RE-Imagine: Re-orient, Re-ignite, Re-invent', the Summit will explore how occupier requirements are a primary catalyst for change in today's business environment, and how corporate real estate executives must evolve their skills and go beyond the obvious to lead their organization.

In addition, this year's General Sessions include a presentation from Gina Schreck, President of Synapse Connecting, an interactive media and technology company, entitled 'Techno Shifts: How Technology Is Changing Work', and a session from Bill Benjamin, an expert in the cutting edge science of Emotional Intelligence, entitled 'Leadership 2.0: The Science behind Great Leaders'.
