A Focused Future with the Fall Forum Keynote Line-Up

By Rya Hazelwood, Senior Director of Communications & Marketing

AI, ESG, facility design and location … the future of industrial real estate has never been more exciting. Join IAMC this September 9-13 in Boise, Idaho – for the Fall Forum themed Industrial Real Estate: A Focused Future – to share your insights and glean cutting edge trends and best practices from fellow leaders in corporate real estate.

While topical workshops will dive into the details, keynote speakers will tie it all together inspiring and informing with big pictures views:


Opening Keynote Address: Breaking Barriers: Conquering Self-Doubt & Cultural Paradigms

Speaker: Nicole Malachowski, Veteran Combat Pilot of the U.S. Air Force

Everyone faces barriers, both personal and professional, that may appear to place limits on what’s possible. When people pursue only what is expected, accept cultural norms that hold them back, and view barriers that appear insurmountable, their personal and professional lives become limited—scripted. A powerful trailblazer herself, Nicole Malachowski reminds audiences to not let others draw their boundaries, and to break tradition with grace and purpose. She inspires people to see obstacles and challenges as opportunities to grow — a chance to reach new levels of personal and professional excellence. Join Nicole for actionable insights for pursuing dreams, making choices, and living an unscripted life.


Monday Afternoon Keynote Address: C-Suite Spotlight

Speaker: Spencer Levy, Global Client Strategist & Senior Economic Advisor, CBRE

Spencer Levy is Global Client Strategist and Senior Economic Advisor for CBRE, the largest commercial real estate services firm in the world. In this role, he focuses on client engagement and public-facing activities, including thought leadership work performed in conjunction with CBRE Research. He also serves as Co-Chair of the Real Estate Roundtable’s Research Committee.

Spencer is frequently quoted in major business publications and appears on business television, including CNBC, CNN, Bloomberg, PBS and Fox Business. Spencer is the host of CBRE’s podcast “The Weekly Take.” He is considered one of the most insightful commentators on issues of importance to commercial real estate.


Tuesday Morning Keynote Address: Cybersecurity in the Age of Remote Work & International Espionage

Speaker: Eric O'Neill, Former FBI Counter-Terrorism and Counterintelligence Operative; Subject of the Film Breach

The cyber theft of private and confidential information from government agencies, business, and private individuals exceeded $6 trillion in 2021. The modern spy is responsible for these technologically advanced attacks targeting your data. Robert Hanssen was the first of these new cyber spies, charged with selling American secrets to Russia for more than US$1.4 million in cash and diamonds. His ability to exploit computer systems allowed him to protect his identity during a 22-year spy career. In this exciting and informative talk, Eric O’Neill uses real-life spy stories and a review of recent massive cyber-attacks to show how careful diligence, counter-espionage techniques, and zero trust can help identify the numerous spies, hackers, cyber criminals, and trusted insiders that threaten the data that is the currency of our lives.


Closing Keynote Address: Dream Makers

Speaker: Jim "The Rookie" Morris, Athlete, Author, Teacher and Inspiration for the Movie The Rookie

Jim Morris shares his memoirs, documented in the movie, “The Rookie,” about those dream makers who helped to shape his life. He shares the life lessons passed down to him by his grandfather and the lessons he learned from a smalltown baseball team who helped him pursue his long-time dream of becoming a major league baseball player. Join Jim for an inspirational recounting of his journey through failures and successes while chasing his dreams and overcoming life’s obstacles.
