ULI Young Leaders in Asia Pacific have focused their annual program around four types of events:
Lunch & Learn Series
On a regular basis, ULI Young Leaders holds exclusive Lunch & Learn sessions with industry leaders and leading companies in various cities. The idea is simple – a small group of Young Leaders visit a company’s offices for an informal lunch to learn about the company. This is followed by an open discussion about specific hot topics and anything relevant to the current and future states of the real estate industry. The goal of the Lunch & Learn session is to provide a unique opportunity for ULI Asia Pacific Young Leader Members and industry leaders to engage in an open discussion. Achieved events include Sino Group with Daryl Ng, HSBC with Jason Kern, and The Blackstone Group with Stuart Grant.
Exclusive property tours, project exhibitions, expert discussion panels, educational events, and other unique opportunities to learn more about the issues and projects defining the real estate industry. Examples include tour of the Marina Bay, Beijing Parkview Green property tour, tour of The Hong Kong Architecture Biennale, and site visit of Goodman Interlink.
The mission of the Mentorship Program is to foster an exchange of professional ideas and mentorship between experienced executives in the industry (“Mentors”) and young real estate professionals (“Mentees”). The goal is to provide Mentors the opportunity to strengthen ties with one or two young leaders of the local real estate community and the opportunity to gain a fresh perspective and additional experience as an advisor, supporter and coach. Mentees will have the chance to learn from experienced industry players.
While networking is a part of all our events, each year we also plan social events specifically intended to encourage networking among Young Leader Members. Recent examples are the ULI & ANREV Young Professionals Networking Drinks, and Shanghai 2012 Summer Happy Drinks Party.
