"The women in Built Environment event by NTU is so special to me, as I was once a student participating at the University gave me so much confidence and encouragement about the purpose I need to focus on.  Also, it was one of the last events that year that I participated in at the campus before the pandemic lockdown started. Thanks for the opportunity to join this wonderful event and be able to share my journey with the students. And my wishes to other guest speakers and delegates." Gayathrre graduated from NTU with an MSc in Project Management (Construction) in 2020 and now works as a Junior Project Manager for Jalara Concept in Dubai.

"I attended last year as a student, and found it a very worthwhile and inspirational event, so was delighted to be asked to be one of the speakers this year!  A great chance to meet other women in the industry and hear about their experiences, practice my presentation skills, as well as promote VolkerFitzpatrick Ltd as my fantastic employer, and Association of Women in Property Women in Property National Student Awards as an excellent opportunity to take part in!" Esme Butchered, placement student at Volker Fitzpatrick and regional winner of the winner in Property student award.

The School is delighted to have such close industry ties that students continue to benefit from, both within and alongside their studies.
