Connecting tomorrow's leaders\

Darryl Chen, Partner and Urban Design studio lead at Hawkins\Brown, was joined by a panel of industry experts to talk about masterplanning at Connecting Tomorrow's Leaders event hosted by Estate Gazette on 13 July at The Crystal, Royal Victoria Docks, with an audience of new entrants into the industry.

More than a hundred people were in attendance at the special event to hear from property sector leaders about the diverse and exciting career paths real estate has to offer. The audience was comprised of students, recent graduates and other go-getters. Panels of industry experts presented their roles, and the experiences and pitfalls with working in the property industry. The event was also streamed on Facebook Live for those at home to tune in.

Darryl was joined on stage by panellists from British Land and The Collective on a panel about masterplanning chaired by Damian Wild. Questions were taken from the audience, which included asking the panel about their responsibility to existing communities, relevant methods of consultation and tips on how to impress in an interview. Darryl's tip - do a hand drawing!

“We took questions from the audience and there was a sense of a fresh generation wanting to challenge conventions.”
