AFIRE Podcast #18: How Generational Shifts are Impacting Digital Evolution

(Featuring John D’Angelo, Managing Director, Deliotte Consulting)

With automation, machine learning, and other “smart” tech disrupting the employment market, COVID-19 isn’t the only threat to skills development for rising talent. For growing the next generation of leadership, what needs to change?

With current work-from-home regulations in place as a result of COVID-19, it’s critical for investors to reevaluate their “Digital DNA” in order to strengthen their teams and evolve their leadership strategies.

Just because we’ve done training, recruitment, team building, and leadership a certain way in the past—is that how we should do it into the future? In this episode of the AFIRE Podcast, John D’Angelo, Managing Director at Deloitte Consulting, talks about how real estate approaches technology, training, and innovation as a means to develop and support future leaders in our industry.


John leads the US real estate sector at Deloitte Consulting where he is focused on operational transformation, working primarily with real estate operating companies, investment managers and service providers.

John’s entire professional experience relates to helping companies improve their operations, and most of his career has been focused on working with companies in the global real estate industry. John has built trusted business adviser relationship with senior executives at some of the largest organizations in the global real estate industry and has led large engagement teams that consistently deliver value and improve client operations.

In addition to general management consulting experience, John is a certified master facilitator and was responsible for the west coast collaborative work practice at Ernst & Young and then Cap Gemini. In this capacity, he worked with the “C-suite” of a number of Global 500 companies, helping their executive teams solve complicated business challenges with focused facilitated work sessions.
