For many, ‘commercialism’ is simply about bringing in new or increased income, often through trading or charging for non-statutory services. There is far more to being ‘commercial’ than that, and alongside improving and generating new income streams should we think about ‘commercialism’ in terms of being more ‘commercial’ about everything that we do?
In that context being ‘commercial’ is about taking a more business-like approach to managing the property estate and to the way the property estate is managed in order to minimise costs.
With the use of case studies this event will explore how a more commercial approach can be adopted in all that you do and the efficiencies and other wider benefits it can bring.
Our aim is to equip you with all of the tools you need to take a more commercial approach to managing your property estate and property service.
