In January 2015, the Australian Property Institute attended the Pacific Rim Real Estate (PRRES) conference in Kuala Lumpur. The conference is attended by property academics from across Australia and around the world, and affords attendees the ideal opportunity to network and present among their peers.
The API presented two awards at the PRRES Gala Dinner. These awards recognise the recipient’s contribution to property education and/or research to the API and to the property industry as a whole.
The first award is the 'API Award for Excellence – Early Stage Academic', which is presented to someone with under seven years’ experience as an academic. The second award is the 'API Award for Excellence – Senior Academic'.
The 'API Award for Excellence - Early Stage Academic' was presented to Lyndall Bryant from the Queensland University of Technology.
Lyndall commenced working for QUT as an academic after working in senior management roles in the property industry for many years. Having such varied industry experience has enabled Lyndall to teach across and research a range of property topics.
Lyndall has recently completed her PhD, and her research has been published across a number of Australian and international Property Journals. Lyndall is also rated highly in student experience rankings, achieving above faculty and university average scores.
Upon receiving the award, Lyndall commented: “I am extremely honoured and delighted to receive such a prestigious award from the API. The 'API Award of Excellence' is a highly coveted prize by early career academics throughout Australia, and I am humbled to be recognised by the industry from so many high quality nominees.
"I am sincerely grateful for the recognition from the Australian Property Institute of my work in linking industry issues with property education and property research”.
Details of the 'API Award for Excellence – Senior Academic' award winner will be included in next month's e-newsletter.
