Justin in Long Ride for Great Cause

Last month, ACORPP Director Justin Boelen spent five days in the saddle to complete the annual Hawaiian Ride for Youth fundraising event.  Around 150 riders pedal powered their way from Albany to Perth, covering 700kms over five days to raise over $2.3 million for Youth Focus for the prevention of youth suicide.  This was Justin’s fourth year in the Ride for Youth – his ongoing commitment for this cause is to be commended.

Lending a Hand

An old client of ACORPP who now volunteers their time for not-for-profit organisations, sought our advice on a property matter.

A relative newcomer to the not-for-profit scene, Kinship Connections Aboriginal Corporation, puts focus on healing past damage and fostering cultural belonging amongst the Aboriginal people. Kinship Connections was founded by Ann Oakley who was motivated by the need to place Aboriginal children in care in the most culturally appropriate foster family. They were making great strides and had outgrown their office. ACORPP was more than happy to volunteer time assisting an old client and a good cause providing Kinship Connections with advice for their offer for new office space.

ACORPP Director, Gordon Bateup also volunteered time and expertise, working closely with Tony George, the Principal of St Stephens School in Duncraig, with advice on the refurbishment of the Duncraig Primary Area of the school.  “Featuring modern moveable screens and furniture, mobile learning trolleys and new quiet spaces amongst others, the refurbishment will see St Stephen’s School Duncraig Primary transform into an exciting education hub that will enable students to be alive in the adventure of learning” said Mrs Tracey Gray, Head of Primary School.

 

Good Business = It’s what you know + and who you know

Since the last newsletter, ACORPP Director Lisa Seun, has been attending industry specific professional development conferences in Singapore and the USA.  Tenant representation is such a specialised area of property that we have had to extend our reach globally to identify more relevant industry bodies such as CoreNet Global and ITRA Global

CoreNet Global  is an organisation that empowers the end users of corporate real estate and Lisa attended the CoreNet Asia Pacific Summit in Singapore. Seeing the relevance of CoreNet for professional development, she is now a Program Committee Member for WA. 

“Last month, Amy and I helped coordinate the inaugural CoreNet member event in Perth, which kicked off with an ‘insiders’ tour of Elizabeth Quay with MRA as our guide” Lisa said.  The first event was over-subscribed and a success given the inclement weather on the day.

Lisa’s globetrotting continued in April at the ITRA Global conference in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Despite warm weather and white sandy beaches beckoning outside, it was a fruitful and solid 3 day conference that covered included building on our network of independent tenant representatives abroad to service our clients’ needs. 

Lisa was again invited to speak on the international property panel. The expert panel consisted of executives from ITRA Global’s international offices who shared extensive corporate real estate expertise from throughout Canada, Europe and Australia. The panellists delivered both personal and professional insights into leasing protocols, key industry processes and national practices across multiple markets and jurisdictions.
