Emerging Leaders Announced!

Property Council's inaugural Emerging Leaders Programme has now accepted ten mentoring pairs who will be matched for the next 12 months to share knowledge and extend networks with the aim of developing future leaders in the property industry.

The Emerging Leaders Panel were overwhelmed by the interest in the programme and the standard of applicants, with over 100 applications received from across New Zealand.

Pairs were matched based on their location and specific interests; for example, an architecture graduate wanting to learn more about property development was then matched with a developer in their city rather than an architect as it was acknowedged that they would be likely to get more value out of training that was not available within their workplace or discipline.

"Often a mismatch of expertise or location meant that we were unable to match some very worthy applicants, a dilemma we hope to rectify in future years as we are able to expand the programme" says Property Council's membership manager Harry Wright.
