The Young Leaders Executive Committee organises semi-annual drinks, held in the summer and winter, that are open to all and provide an excellent opportunity to meet fellow real estate professionals in an informal setting.
Summer & Winter Drinks
The most recent Networking Drinks event was held at 22 Bishopsgate on 21st October. The event brought together a wide panel of speakers who shared their viewpoints on the changes in the work habits, work culture and workspaces over the past eighteen months as firms return to the office.
Lunch and Learn
The Young Leaders group holds regular, informal, intimate Lunch and Learn sessions with industry leaders. A small group of 10 to 15 Young Leaders visits a company’s offices for an informal lunch and listens to a brief presentation on the company and its business. The presentation is followed by a discussion about the market, career development, and anything else relevant to the real estate industry. These lunches provide a unique opportunity for Young Leaders members to engage in an open discussion with an industry leader.
Recent Lunch and Learn speakers include:
- Simon Powell, Assistant Director, Strategic Projects and Property, Housing and Land, Greater London Authority
- Brendan Jarvis, Head of Real Estate EMEA in the Investment Banking, Barclays
- James Seppala, Partner and Head of Europe Real Estate Acquisitions at Blackstone
An opportunity to get paired up with two different individuals within ULI YL and to independently network outside of monthly board meetings.
