Merry Christmas - Grab a break if you can

Buckle up.
2023 looks like its going to be another bumpy year for property professionals.
After a year of change, the immediate future looks like it could be just as challenging.
So, the IPAC and COMPRO Councils hope you can take some time out with friends and whanau over this holiday season, while having a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.


New future leader joins IPAC
Ko Celeste Patutama tōku ingoa. He uri ahau nō Ngāti Awa, Te Arawa, Kuki Airani, Niue me Itari hoki. He mātanga paetahi arowhenua ahau mō WSP.

My name is Celeste Patutama. I am of Ngāti Awa, Te Arawa, Cook Island, Niuean and Italian descent. I am a Graduate Property Consultant at WSP.
I graduated from the University of Auckland in 2021 with a Bachelor of Property. I am passionate about Māori Land, Property Development and Valuation.

I entered the industry as a Summer Intern at the Ministry of Education at the end of 2020. I worked in the Capital Works – Major Works team delivering construction projects in schools across the Wellington and Wairarapa regions.

In March 2021 I started my current role at WSP as a Graduate Property Consultant, working in acquisitions, disposals and legalisation of land under the Public Works Act 1981 for major roading projects. WSP Property Consultancy has recently established a specialised Māori Land Development team which I am excited to be part of.
I applied to the Future Leaders Programme to meet new people and be amongst New Zealand’s up and coming property industry leaders. I hope to gain industry experience, develop my professional skills and bring a Māori and Pasifika perspective to the programme.
