Walter Boettcher has been unveiled as a keynote speaker of the Glazing Summit.

Walter is the chief economist at Colliers International, the global property advisor employing 12,000 professionals across 69 countries.

With an economics degree from the University of Texas and a PhD from University College London, Walter has been involved in the global property market for 20 years. An internationally renowned speaker, he will give his views on Brexit, housing, and the outlook for the UK economy.

Andrew Scott, founder of the Glazing Summit, said: “Our industry is dependent on both consumer confidence in the home improvement sector and buoyancy in the wider property market, including housing and commercial construction projects. Walter’s unique insight into the property market is sought after by governments, institutions and the banking industry, and I’m delighted he will share his views with us.”
