Advisory Board

The Senior Advisory Board is integral to the success of the 40 Percent Symposium conferences.  Both our London and Frankfurt events are supported by diverse advisory board members who are some of the leading figures in the industry.  The key purpose of the Frankfurt Senior Advisory Board is to aid with the shaping of the programme content to ensure that issues which are affecting the real estate community in Germany and Central Europe are highlighted.  The Board are also instrumental in assisting the the selection of speakers to ensure a relevant and interesting conference programme.
