Dr Jonathan Drane provides mentoring and coaching to Post Graduate students in the built environment with a particular emphasis on urban and property development. This includes:

Topic definition, time management, programming and workshopping with other students.

If you are interested in attending one of Jonathan’s workshops there is a minimum of 10 students required so it can be by arrangement. For more information contact Jonathan on


Jonathan obtained a doctorate in 2015 at UNSW BE, an experience that led to him precipitating and leading a community group, a cohort knowledge share programme and a ‘mini-thesis’ project in the faculty ( the first of its kind).

Hs work in creating this programme is captured in two articles which he wrote together with the cohort students.
