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 (11 in Victoria and two as a National Program), 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.
Objectives for both sets of participants
- For mentees to gain new perspectives to advance their career and develop powerful professional connections and sponsors.
- For mentors to enhance their practice of mentoring and participate in forums with their peers across the industry.
A unique annual mentoring experience
- Highly experiential, interactive workshops for mentees and mentors.
- Facilitated group discussions.
- A minimum of ten one-on-one meetings and five group events (virtual and face-to-face delivery).

What does it mean to be a mentee?
Being mentored is one of the most valuable and effective development opportunities you can pursue.
Find out how being a mentee can benefit your professional and personal development.
The benefits of becoming a mentor?
Mentors encourage the professional and personal development of a mentee through knowledge-sharing, industry expertise and experience while simultaneously enhancing their leadership skills.
This is the first opportunity for mentees and mentors to learn more about the program and what they can expect during the year. Mentees and mentors gain insights into the matching process and hear from the program’s sponsors and previous mentors/mentees. Most importantly, their match is revealed at this event. There is time to get to know each other and start planning the year together, including establishing a baseline of key growth and development areas that will be measured throughout the year.
