Last month, Darwin played host to the annual Property Congress. Hundreds of the property industry’s finest descended upon the NT, including many of our own #cityshaper team.
Delegates were treated to some memorable insights into leadership from those within and outside the property industry, including Nina Yang, Rebecca Huntley and New Zealand’s ex-PM, Rt Hon Sir John Key.
This year, amid heightened public discussion around issues such as population and growth, the Congress agenda focussed on the bigger picture. Presenters and panellists provided a powerful reminder of the special responsibility we have as an industry to influence policies and decisions which have a real impact on the lives of people who live and work in the communities we build.
At Urbis, our goal is to shape cities and communities for a better future. It is something we achieve by drawing together some of the brightest minds. Together, we can influence amazing outcomes. An example of our ambition in action is the recent Creating Great Australian Cities research. A landmark report produced in partnership by Urbis with the Property Council of Australia, and cities expert Greg Clark, Dr Tim Moonen and their colleagues at The Business of Cities Ltd.
