South West Autumn Business Briefing

​On Wednesday 4th November, the JLL Exeter office hosted a round table Autumn Business Briefing at Sandy Park, which targeted occupiers within the region.  The first event of its kind featured guest speaker Deborah Waddell, CBI Regional Director for the South West, along with Tom Carroll, Director, EMEA Research, JLL and Tim Western, Director, JLL Exeter, who hosted the event and lead the Q & A session.

With the focus on occupiers of commercial space within Exeter and surrounds, the event looked to turn up the volume on the issues affecting these occupiers, and how property can improve business performance.

The event saw both the regional BBC SW correspondent and Express and Echo in attendance, which has generated some excellent media coverage and enhanced the presence of JLL and CBI in the region. View our press release here.

From the experts


Tom Carroll

Director, EMEA Research

​"The outlook for the South West economy is positive, but there are clearly a number of important areas that will drive growth - access to talent is one of the core challenges and opportunities for the South West region.

Our global corporate real estate survey showed that HR and talent constraints are increasingly important to business location and real estate strategy."


Tim Western

Director, UK Industrial and Logistics

"​We are working with smart businesses to ensure that their work place strategies are aligned with their business strategy.

There is now a strong drive to increase productivity from people with the business and therefore senior management should understand and plan for the future space requirement and work style preferences."
