National Mentoring Program 2024

Built and delivered by today’s property leaders for tomorrow’s property leaders

The Property Council is committed to developing and expanding talent within our industry, and is pleased to offer a National Mentoring Program available to all members across the country. 

This initiative builds on the strong success of the previous programs that have been delivered over the past 12 years, involving over 900 mentees and mentors.

Right now, growing your people has never been more important. The Property Council’s National Mentoring Program is dynamic, and purpose–built for the challenges and opportunities in our industry.

Whether you’re seeking a mentor, a way to give back to the industry as a mentor, or opportunities for your staff, this National Mentoring Program delivers.

Nominations to our mentoring program for 2024 are now closed. Nominations for 2025 will open on 7th October 2024. Express your interest to be part of the 2025 program.



Being mentored is one of the most valuable and effective development opportunities you can pursue. A relationship with a mentor is based on encouragement, constructive feedback, openness, mutual trust and respect. A willingness to learn and share can provide you with the essential knowledge to succeed, both professionally and personally.
