Knight Frank Strategy Expert Warns of Changes to Europe Beyond Brexit

A recent blog by seasoned Knight Frank Strategic Consultant Neil McLocklin shares his first in a series of articles highlighting changes happening across Europe in the uncertain climate following Brexit; changes that are having an impact on the corporate headquarters of the future.

In the post, McLocklin shares some of his industry experience and, at a high level, the changes being witnessed by many businesses in Brexit’s wake. He teases greater detail in upcoming posts but identifies changes which include long-term demographic shifts, knowledge clusters, the death of verticals, Nationalism and Localism, city power, regulation, technology, politics, and taxation.

 Excerpt below.

“The one-size-fits-all, large corporate headquarter is becoming a thing of the past, or at least a much leaner and smaller operation in the future. The paradox is that whilst technology has enabled businesses to be far more footloose, geography has never been more important.

Many company executives will be preparing detailed plans for 2018 and beyond, and the geographical changes in Europe, whether driven by demographic, economic, political or technological factors, should be a key consideration moving forward.”
