Leonie Freeman: Mānawatia a Matariki

Happy Māori New Year

With 2022 marking Aotearoa’s first official Matariki holiday celebration, we hope the new year brings you good health, happiness and prosperity.

On the agenda this week we have an update on Ōtautahi’s new Te Pae Convention Centre courtesy of Lizzie Pearson from Ōtākaro Limited, a summary of upcoming government workstreams from Head of Advocacy Katherine Wilson, a catch up with one of our #cityshapers, Todd Lauchlan from JLL, insight into the Government’s plasterboard product substitution guide  and the launch of the RECON22 programme.

On that note, we have only 27 tickets left for our inaugural Offset | Reset event taking place on 28 July. Unlike the standard “green” event, the programme goes beyond environmental sustainability, broadening our scope to include Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG). We see this as an important focus for the property sector as the integration of ESG becomes non-negotiable. Read more.

In other news, we are fielding strong enquiries about our upcoming committee elections, which are due to kick off in early August – watch this space for further updates.

Finally, thank you to everyone who has supported our events over the past couple of months, we are so pleased to be back hosting you once again and I look forward to catching up with you in-person soon.

Noho ora mai.
