As communications advisors, we encourage our clients to voice their opinions on the issues and topics most urgently facing the industry. Through dialogue and debate on sector trends and challenges, we can help our clients profile their expertise in the market.

Sometimes, this also means voicing their opinions in disagreement – against the received wisdom on any given topic.  Take Oliver Shah’s recent guest column in REACT, for example, predicting the next property management battle would be found in the service charge arena.

Enter Nick Hilton, a Partner in Workman’s Retail & Leisure Property Management team, who’s long experience in advising retail landlords across the UK puts him in the best position to challenge the idea of there being any battlefield at all.

A speedy turnaround of a response to Oli Shah’s piece resulted in immediate coverage, and we’ll certainly be keeping a watchful eye out for Oliver Shah’s next piece.

Have you read anything in the media lately that you disagreed with? Let us know.
