John Corbett

Workplace & Real Estate Strategist, Australia and New Zealand, Cisco

Having formally entered the real estate industry in the early 90s as a real estate Valuer, John’s career journey intersected several associated real estate disciplines including agency, real estate finance and corporate real estate advocacy, prior to joining Cisco.

Transitioning through the more traditional corporate real estate functions making up Cisco’s global real estate portfolio over 15 years, it became evident that the convergence of traditional workplace strategy and workplace technology was becoming naturally intertwined such that John’s focus pivoted towards architecting innovative technology enabled workplace strategies, focused on getting corporate real estate to work harder for users by securely maintaining, sustaining and scaling the user experience, all within Cisco’s catalogue.

Years of experimentation, learning and development has resulted in notable workplace project successes and helped with the reinvention of Cisco’s workplace user experience while continually enhancing real estate efficiencies. Still very much focused on corporate real estate and workplace strategy, John is now a part of the Cisco Workplace Technology team where he continues his pioneering of technology enabled workplace strategies, working with Cisco customers to enable them with similar success.
