The South African Council of Shopping Centres (SACSC) recently hosted a well-attended SASC Networking Breakfast with Lynette Ntuli, founding director and CEO of Innate Investment Solutions.

The event, which took place at the Radisson Blu Hotel in Granger Bay, Western Cape, was attended by industry experts from the region where Ntuli shared her insights at the breakfast, which took place on 22 August 2018.

These quarterly networking breakfasts hosted by the SACSC take place in Cape Town, Durban and Johannesburg and are attended by retail, property and industry professionals.

A commerce graduate, Ntuli has previously held positions at Deloitte, Motseng Marriott Corporate Property, Motseng Property Services and the Durban Business Enhancement Initiative in various senior leadership roles in the commercial and retail property sector and in the business development and investment promotion arena.

She provided an insightful look into how smart retail estate as well as property and financial technologies are already impacting on operations, customers, revenue and capacity. The talk took a deep dive into how spatial needs are changing and how property across asset classes from retail to industrial to residential will need to evolve or dissolve to meet the changing needs of the market and its end users.
