Juliette has worked at the interface of property and technology industries for the last 15 years. She has advised investors, developers, owners, occupiers and governments on positioning property for tech companies, developing clusters and ‘innovation ecosystems’.
She started her career on Cambridge Science Park, and opened what we now know as a co-working space, as well as attracting internationally significant tenants to the park. Thereafter, she worked in New York and Toronto, developing social spaces in large developments, using technology for the building to ‘know who is inside’ and ensuring food grown on site.
On returning to the UK, Juliette spent time learning to be a winemaker, before being recommended to the British government to lead the cluster development and property strategy for Tech City, where she worked with Hackney Council to develop the Tech City showcase during the Olympic games. Following that, she continued as an advisor to No.10, GLA, Tech City, property developers and investors to promote property to be used by tech companies in the burgeoning ‘Tech City’.
She since joined Cushman & Wakefield where she led the development of PiLabs – Europe’s first Proptech accelerator, and is in Cushman’s global technology team leading the London practice. She continues to advise investors and developers on property strategy for tech, and is seconded back to Tech City UK on a part time basis.
She is passionate about technological trends affecting property and focuses on the future of the industry. She sits on smart cities and early stage company advisory boards. She is a regular speaker and writes for the Estates Gazette.
Hunger in the UK: the food banks phenomenon
"Although 'battle' suggests destruction, these were some of the most constructive debates I've taken part in. This was civilised conflict in the best sense of both words."
