Village Management Professional Development + Peer Network

What is The Village Management PD + Peer Network?

We are a Professional Development  + Peer Network dedicated to the world of the Village Manager.  We offer a range of different support for the Village Manager so you can confidently and successfully navigate the management of Retirement Villages, Land Lease Communities and other Retirement Downsizing options.

We hear you!

After talking with over 280 Retirement Village Managers across Australia as well as with Operators and heads of The Retirement Village Resident Association, we know where the pinch points are and we know where you would like more support.

We kicked things off with the first ever dedicated Village Manager conference – the VILLAGE SUMMIT April 2019 held at the beautiful Sofitel Darling Harbour Sydney.  Maybe we say you there! 

Mark your diary for our next VILLAGE SUMMIT conference August 10th and 11th, 2020 at the Sheraton Grand Sydney.

Start thinking now about joining 400 of your Village Management colleagues for an inspiring two days in Sydney. 

The theme of this years VILLAGE SUMMIT is People Passion Professionalism, an intensive 2 day program designed to equip, inspire and connect Village Professionals.

Join some of the country’s most successful village operators and managers who will share their challenges, successes and learnings plus insights from other industries as we prepare to accommodate the new wave of consumers. 

With a focus on legislation, industry frameworks, leadership, soft skills, technology, care, sales, marketing and insight into the expectation of future and current residents, this program promises to support the decision makers of the sector both ‘in-field’ and head office professionals.

Hear from Matt Church (pictured), nominated in the Top 10 Leadership speakers in the world Matt will share the power of motivational leadership to inspire and influence village communities. Mark Bindon, Co Founder of the successful Oak Tree Group will share the Resident Engagement journey and how to build a brand based on trusted relationships.

Plus 18 other fabulous speakers.

Ongoing Support and Professional Development

Our conference is a fantastic way to communicate, engage and network but we know when you return to your Retirement Village, it can feel like you are miles away from continued support, industry insights and the professional support network of others.
