Sitematch UK is all about forming connections through meetings. In a new feature, we talk to regeneration specialists about their most memorable meetings, starting with original Sitematch collaborator and director of regeneration, economic development and environment at Hounslow Council, Brendon Walsh (below).
"My most memorable meeting was with Christian Rogers from Capita Symonds. Christian offered to buy lunch in order to catch up. By the end of it I had convinced him to sign up for sponsorship for the inaugural Sitematch London meeting.
"We wouldn't have got anywhere with Sitematch without our sponsors - BNP Paribas Real Estate, GVA, Peter Brett Associates, Willmott Dixon and Redwire as well as Capita. They were smart enough to see the benefits of using Sitematch to demonstrate their expertise and they've been very supportive.
"Good chap that he is Christian signed up and still paid for lunch!”
