Our first two Introductory Classes were run in November with a sample of students from Western Sydney University, ICMS and a UNSW Alumni.
The Master Class topic ‘Becoming a Street Smart Property Developer’ was well received by the attendees with a feedback survey showing the helpfulness of the session at 87% and a particular interest in the themes of ‘an agile life path’ that entrepreneurship can provide and an appreciation of the ‘work readiness’ aspect of the session. Students were also given a view of complementary work skills that they currently possess that could align with Property Development Industry roles such as project manager, quantity surveyor and builder.
Highlight: Industry Leader Interview- Ross Norton
Veteran Executive Ross Norton was interviewed by Dr Drane and discussed his transition from an architectural background into Property Development. He covered three key case study projects that he had been involved in including Emiliano Apartments Surry Hills, Knightsbridge Tower Newcastle and Whisper Bay Airlie Beach.
Each project was set in a different time era pre-GFC , GFC and post GFC and Ross’s insights into the cycles and resilience needed over a lifetime in Property Development.
