49 Women Who Will Shape The Future Of UK Real Estate

To mark the second London Women Leading Real Estate event, Bisnow looked to the future, and the future looks great. Last year we compiled a list of the most influential women in UK commercial real estate. This year we asked, who owns the future? Who are the rising stars, the people behind the headlines, and those shaking up the sector? They didn’t need to be young necessarily, just talented, exciting, innovative and disruptive.

With that in mind, here are 49 women who will shape the future of the industry. They are diverse in their backgrounds, the businesses they have started, the roles they fill and the ideas they are pursuing. And, if any conclusions can be drawn on differences with last year’s list, there is a hunger to create networks and communities in both their professional and personal lives that shines through.

Last year’s event was a huge success, with more than 500 people gathered to discuss how the industry can improve diversity, and innovate more generally. Landsec London managing director Colette O’Shea said seeing so many women from the sector in one room was a game changer, and put a spring in her step. All of the people on this list and hundreds more will be at this year’s event on 6 February. We hope you can join us.
