Bentall LP - We are Canada's largest real estate investment advisory and services organization,with nearly a century of successful operations under out belt. Our coast-to-coast capability is soundly supported by widely experienced teams in all major Canadian markets.

At each of our offices, Bentall's asset management specialists work in tandem with our property management, leasing and development groups to actively manage the assets entrusted to our stewardship.






Futureye Pty Ltd. - Futureye was established in 2002 by Katherine Teh-White, who believed that a different kind of consultancy was needed to undertake the analysis, strategic planning, proactive thinking, and communications demanded by sustainable development.

We work to develop proactive organisations that will succeed in the new stakeholder era. Our proposition is that sustainable development will never be realised without people inside organisations and communities being willing to explore and apply new concepts and change the ways in which things have always been done.

Futureye specialises in providing challenging and integrated solutions to complex organisational problems. We have helped some of Australia's leading companies, government departments and authorities and not-for-profit organisations to:

  • Reduce uncertainty through a better understanding of organisational risks and opportunities, impacts, and emerging issues;
  • Find new ways to look at a problem or approach an issue through strategy and policy development;
  • Reduce outrage risks by making stakeholder engagement and communication programs more effective;
  • Align personal, organisational and stakeholder valuesand 'do well by doing good'; and
  • Enhance their understanding of sustainability and how it applies to their organisation, earning a social license to grow, creating competitive advantage or opening new markets.
Through understanding changing expectations at an international policy, government and community-level, we help organisations assess their behaviour and risks to facilitate an organisational response that will enhance its reputation and secure its social license to grow.
Our name and logo

The name Futureye was coined to reflect the purpose of the business; developing peoples power to change the world as it is today, through developing their sense of their current and potential issues and how they want to be perceived now and in the future.

The logo was designed to look like an eye, yet when you look more closely, it is composed of very different characters with very different eyes, who join together to form one, emphasising the diverse and often conflicting viewpoints, cultures and communities that must come together if we are to solve our most pressing problems.
