Encouraging more women to embrace public speaking and mentoring them to succeed in their chosen fields are the ultimate goals of a new organisation recently launched by Harcourts.

Harcourts Inspirational Women, which holds its first New Zealand gathering on 29 August in Auckland, is the brainchild of Irene Green, Head of Harcourts International Academy. She says she wanted to create a support network for women, not just within Harcourts, but for all women in real estate.

"I believe that women in our industry represent a vast, relatively untapped pool of knowledge and talent. This group is hopefully a way for those women to come together to share their experiences as well as support each other," Irene says.

The backbone of Harcourts Inspirational Women is a network of women around the country who will head up a mentoring programme. Practical advice and support and will be given, seeking to help women in real estate succeed and take more opportunities.

The Auckland event will feature Irene Green and Harcourts International Chief Operations Office Jo Clifford, both New Zealand women working in the top tier of real estate internationally.

Future events and key speakers will be published via the Harcourts Inspirational Women’s website ( The profiles of Harcourts Inspirational Women guest speakers will also be listed on the website, complete with their preferred key messages.
