Tags: Canterbury Christchurch Commercial Residential Sponsorship

The Property Council New Zealand’s Future Directions “Great Chat” event invited Christchurch young professionals to the Novotel for drinks and a casual opportunity to network with industry peers.


Launched in 2016, the South Island’s Future Directions events were introduced to educate and inspire the younger demographic of the Property Council New Zealand.

The “Great Chat” gives those young and new to industry members a chance to form those all-important professional relationships when starting out in their careers.

Kelly Taylor, Branch Manager for Christchurch’s Property Council New Zealand, hosted the lively event at Novotel Christchurch. The casual affair invited participants to have a drink and a chat in a speed-dating type meet-and-greet.

There were plenty of laughs and business card exchanges with participants making their way around the room for five-minute encounters over the hour.

To conclude, Bayleys Project Marketing specialist Justin Haley addressed the group and awarded the winners of the “Great Chat Scavenger Hunt” with Crusaders tickets.
