After a successful inaugural event, the ALDE Leadership in Land Development Luncheon is back again in 2023.

With a similar focus on featuring industry leaders, sharing diverse perspectives and encouraging engaging discussions, we hope many of you will join us and set the tone for the year.

The theme for 2023 was ‘Transformation’ and you can view the Event Report here

The first Leadership in Land Development Luncheon for 2022 was a great success. Held at the Langham Hotel in Southbank Melbourne, this was the first time we offered an in person and hybrid event.

Our fabulous speaker Rachel Lunn of Melbourne Water shared some invaluable insights on her journeys within the land development industry. The industry panel featuring Monica George of GHD Australia and Sarah Watkins from Melbourne Water/Stormwater Victoria was a crowd favourite for their candour and interesting perspectives. Suzi Finkelstein from Women & Leadership Australia/Australian School of Applied Management spoke to the challenges females face within STEMs and broader industries.
