Leaders’ Perspectives Summit by MIPIM 2021 - Post-show White Paper

Leaders working across continents underlined the pronounced effects of the Covid crisis on people globally. Even within this uncertain and complex world, however, if we turn the glass the other way round, the Covid crisis also presents unique opportunities – for the real estate industry, their clients and for wider society.

The Summit was opened by Bertrand Piccard, initiator & chairman of the Solar Impulse Foundation.

“We have to learn to try outside of what has been done, outside of what we have learnt, in order to have a chance to get completely different outcomes,” he said.


Each of the 13 leaders who spoke on 16 March 2021 addressed the audience for 30 minutes. Towards the end of each session, a ‘young talent’ was invited to ask a few of their own questions.

François Trausch, global CEO & CIO of Allianz Real Estate, closed the Summit on the note:

“The Covid crisis is a tremendous opportunity. It has pushed people to think differently. It is an opportunity to learn, to change, to think strategically.”
