Tonight the biggest ever Property Congress kicks off on Hamilton Island.
This year’s Congress will have a strong focus on leadership, ranging from our workplaces and organisations through to place-making and high public office.
We’ll be hearing from former prime ministers and heroic cave diver rescuers, dropping in along the way at some of our best projects and places as well as hearing from our own leaders on the opportunities ahead across different industry sectors.
Progress in our industry comes through leadership of our companies and organisations, as well on the big issues which matter to our industry, our communities and the country.
As we mark our fiftieth year of championing our industry, it will also be an opportunity to celebrate those who have provided leadership for our organization such as Dexus CEO and our former national president, Darren Steinberg who will today be presented with national life membership of the Property Council.
Our industry’s leadership on environmental, social and governance performance is also being recognised on the international stage, with Australian property assets being declared global leaders across a number of sectors in the 2019 GRESB sustainability benchmark.
Our region has again out-performed the rest of the world for the ninth consecutive year – another testament to the dividends of leadership.
