The future of real estate lies in
these bold minds!
KMC Savills partnered with CoreNet
Global Philippines Chapter to host the "FutureForward 2025"
Afterwork Presentations and Workshops. Various Real Estate brokers
and corporate clients attended the event held in the KMC Solutions
office in V Corporate Center.

model of the future. The participants were subdivided into four
groups and tasked to come up with bold predictions based on the
four workstreams: belonging, learning, convening and information

emphasized the need for a "culture of non-stop learning" through

emotional intelligence and reading of body language.
It was also predicted that the
future of learning in the industry is centered on virtual learning.
While face-to-face interactions will continue to play a significant
role, a unified communication system can help ease the transaction
and streamline the skillset and knowledge absorption.
The future of Belonging is also
showing significant growth after the first MCR class was held in
the Philippines. There is also great potential in making the young
chapter in the Philippines grow by making it known that there are
more course offerings. The brokers also suggested making

through video conferencing or livestreaming. The future will move
beyond cloud computing to augmented reality or virtual reality.

To wrap up, the group decided to
draw out the direction that the Corporate Real Estate industry is
taking. The participants reached a consensus that it is likely that
the type of real estate sold will change in the next 7 years.
Factoring the change in how people work, they agreed that
technology will continue to influence the industry as its main
