I have to admit until I saw it posted on someone’s timeline- I didn’t even consider the event on Thursday 28th November to be my last event of the decade. I’m not one for writing, I prefer the video format although open to writing from time to time. So the last event of the decade- what does this mean? To be fair if I had realised earlier I would of moved to a larger venue to accommodate for those who have made a difference to my journey and many others. The first person who introduced me to networking and property was David Salmon and he introduced me to the event which Vanish Patel ran. Fast forward in April 2010- I was Co-Hosting with David Salmon in a small glass room the Wandsworth Property Network and we have continued since this event- moving location and changing co-host a number of times. One of those who has really contributed to the Network is Nicholas Marshall, who for many years Co-Hosted the event. In terms of my last event of the decade- its the Central London Property Network which in November will be Co-Hosted by Aaron Yahaya- with a content rich evening. The event is now Sponsored by Aura Architecture, CrowdwithUs, Konnexsion and Ronald Fletcher Baker. Plus we are supported by Bond Financial Services. My first event of 2020 is the National Development Summit.
Sometimes its hard to remember ten years back, its easier to remember the more recent meets – ie 2019- including Guest Speakers- Richard Bowser of Property Investor News Magazine.
My most recent event focused on the Younger Property Investors/Developers/Property Professionals and I was delighted with the performance of Jack Jiggens who chaired the panel- so I have invited Jack back in 2020 to chair one of the panels at the National Development Summit 2020 and also Co-Host the Commercial Property Summit. A mssive thanks to everyone who has supported the monthly events and the National Development Summit over the last decade.-The National Development Summit initially was brought in, in 2016- I never considered it to be such a large event- in fact I had to be persuaded to run a 1 Day Event again – my previous one day event had been in 2010.
