New Zealand Property Institute Conference A "Knock Your Socks Off" Success

The New Zealand Property Institutes Conference held in Rotorua over the weekend was a "knock your socks off" success, NZPI CEO Conor English said today.

"This was a blow your socks off conference! Don't believe me? - ask any one of the 350 delegates who attended," Mr English said today.

"It was perhaps high risk having a theme of "the New Sandpit", bringing speakers from Canada talking on Emotional Intelligence (EQ), from Tennessee talking on Digital Intelligence, Mega Trends, and from New York talking on the lessons from and personal experience of September 11, but for those who attended, their faith in the Property Institute to deliver was exceptionally well rewarded! The calibre and connections of these speakers was exceptional.

"The New Zealand and Australian based speakers were also excellent, which, along with a very very enjoyable social program made this conference one to remember.

"As CEO of the New Zealand Property Institute, I am extremely proud and thrilled with what we delivered to our members and the profession through this event.

"My thanks goes to our sponsors, our speakers, and to the conference committee who worked very hard to organize such a successful event," Mr English concluded.

Ken Pawson, Morgan Valuations Wanganui, - Convenor,
Marcus O Malley, Cleghorn Gillespie Jensen - Logistics,
Paul Smith, McDowel & Co - Social
