'2023 has been a year of significant positive change and evolution for RICS. 

While there is work to do to deliver our transformation and vision for RICS, Governing Council, the Board and SRB are now working collaboratively and progressively in the public interest, the interest of its members and all its stakeholders around the world.

I am pleased with the progress made so far and the pace at which the next phases of our program are being implemented.

RICS has the opportunity to be a major commentator, influencer and standard bearer for the built and natural environments globally. Supporting members, governments, and other stakeholders in the public interest. Our aspiration remains to be recognised as a world class organisation and professional body, helping to shape businesses and people's enjoyment of tomorrows world.'
