Why human skills matter in an intensely more technological world? Are we going to return to our offices when the pandemic is over, or is remote work the new normal? Will office space become a service? In Episode 3 of Cleaning Up Antony Slumbers, software technology strategist, commercial real estate expert and an art historian answers all of these questions.
Antony has 25 years of experience as a software technology strategist and commercial real estate expert, real expert on PropTech, and #SpaceAsAService.
Antony and Michael first met on Twitter, and found they were doing a lot of the same things in terms of speaking and advising big companies, so they met up at the Royal Academy of Arts in Piccadilly, where Antony hangs out when he’s in London. Because before all this, Antony studied art history and was a 19th Century UK & European Art Dealer.
In our conversation we cover the future of work and discuss the seeming paradox that in intensely more technological world, the value is going to go to humans with very advanced human skills, not necessarily technological skills.
Antony elaborates on the concept of space as a service, forecasts how the post-Covid office space will look like and presents his concept of reviving high streets while reducing transport emissions. We touched upon a number of other issues as well (no discussion on fussball techniques though).

About Cleaning Up
Once a week Michael Liebreich has a conversation (and a drink) with a leader in clean energy, mobility, climate finance or sustainable development.
Each episode covers the technical ground on some aspect of the low-carbon transition – but it also delves into the nature of leadership in the climate transition: whether to be optimistic or pessimistic; how to communicate in order to inspire change; personal credos; and so on.
And it should be fun – most of the guests are Michael’s friends.
