Celebrity Master of Ceremonies - Paula Bennett



A new arrival to the property profession Paula brings a huge amount of energy and dynamism to our conference. As a former Cabinet Minister and Deputy Prime Minister she has a unique and informed position on the challenges we face and knows how to focus on the things that matter.

Keynote Speaker - Rt. Hon. Sir John Key



Sir John has been a strong supporter of the Institute in the past few years including last year’s free webinar during lockdown. He’ll give us his insights into where we’re at, where we’re going and how we manage the transition. We also expect the interaction between Sir John and our MC to be entertaining.

Keynote Speaker - Sir Ian Taylor



We’re incredibly lucky to round out our first morning of conference with Kiwis who have been honoured by the Crown for their contribution to New Zealand. Sir Ian Taylor has a fascinating back story, navigating the stormy seas of business from success, to near failure, and back again.
