Our graduate conference was a great success

Added: Over a year ago by Lendlease

The annual event brings both first and second year graduates together to learn about the business and themselves.

Held over an intense and dynamic two days, the opportunities were endless for attendees to learn, develop new skills, network and increase their understanding of Lendlease and the way we operate. 

The graduates participated in numerous interactive sessions focusing on developing a range of skills. From building their self-awareness using Insights – a psychometric tool – to better understanding our integrated model and various functions. They continued to develop their agility through a series of team-based challenges.

This year, 68 enthusiastic graduates joined some of our senior executives at the event’s Gala Dinner. The evening was a great opportunity to network and hear from members of our Regional Leadership Team. Highlights included hearing from Louie Penny, who spoke of his journey as this year’s winner of the Karl Caslin award – established in memory and celebration of the contribution Karl, who sadly passed away in 2014, made to nurturing new talent at Lendlease.

Aimee Bickerton and Magdalena Steflova also spoke about Horizon, our networking group for people in the early years of their careers, and encouraging our new starters to join the forum to meet, network and change the game. 

Thanks to everyone who contributed to make the event a success.
