In response to the recent COVID-19 pandemic, it is with much disappointment that we have made the decision to cancel this event.

As I’m sure you can appreciate, the health and wellbeing of our members and staff are paramount, and this is a decision that has not been made lightly.

The future of other Property Council events will be determined on a case-by-case basis, following advice from health authorities and the situation with COVID-19 at the time.

We want to thank you for your continued support and encourage you to take care of yourself and your families – we are all in this together.

Should you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me on 09 373 3086.

Ngā mihi nui.

The Property Council Emerging Leaders Programme kicked off in 2019 with ten mentoring pairs selected for a one-year partnership. Supported by training from the New Zealand Coaching and Mentoring Centre, participants were given all the tools they needed for a productive and valuable experience.

Sponsored by JLL, applications for the 2020 programme open on Thursday 19 March, so we’ve asked mentee Laura Conquer of Colliers International and mentor Jane Holland of Bell Gully to share their experience. Membership Manager Harry Wright will be on hand to answer questions and we’ll finish the evening with casual networking over a few beverages.

If you are considering applying for the 2020 intake, then grab your ticket and mark the date in your calendar! With 15 Mentor spaces and 15 Mentee spaces available in the 2020 programme this event is worth attending!

Testimonials from last year’s intake

“It [the programme] is a great opportunity to give back but also learn a bit about yourself, others and the industry.” REBECCA MACDONALD, AIR NEW ZEALAND

 “It’s a great opportunity to get further exposure to the New Zealand property sector and have candid and challenging conversations with a senior people in the industry you usually wouldn’t have that opportunity to do so! Lastly, you get to call your mentor your friend.” GRACEN LUKA, TSA MANAGEMENT
