Accelerating Careers in Real Estate | Episode 8

In this interview, I sit down with James Pellatt, Director of Workplace and Innovation for Great Portland Estates. In the interview James and I discuss his career in developing several of London’s best-known office developments, his ambition in his earlier career to move closer to the ultimate decision-makers and what had been occasionally construed as a mischievous curiosity in his earlier career chapters eventuality led him to a very unique role search for answers to several of the biggest questions affecting the office sector.

James’ ability to accelerate his career is credited to his curiosity, frustration and motivation to deliver a better solution. Not one to let the market status quo dictate these ultimate constraints. He shows how he accelerates in each chapter to learn by searching more influence in decisions. James is now a leading voice, not only in his employer but the industry in how it imagines the office in 2030.
