Croydon November 2018 Meeting
Managing Crucial conversations - Rob McPhun
Through his property coaching and mentoring Rob McPhun has encountered many clients who become unable to progress due to worrying about perceived difficult conversations with Vendors, JV partners, contractors, Estate Agents and Letting Agents.
All of us waste a lot of time and emotional energy worrying about things that have not happened and may never happen.
Rob takes a no nonsense approach to dealing with this and encourages you to stop asking yourself “What if?” which has negative implications and start asking yourself “What then?” which promotes positive mental rehearsal of the situation ensuring that you can go through a logical process and decide how to deal with the situation beforehand allowing you to move forward with confidence.
ALSO... There’s a hole in the bucket – easy ways to save money on your utilities - David Cooper
David Cooper is one of the partners at Full Power Utilities and they are the preferred utilities (gas, electricity, water) supplier for pin and its members.
As the title of his talk suggests, David will be drawing your attention to what is potentially a hole in the bucket that holds your money. Many business owners spend a lot of time and energy generating revenue for themselves, but then forget to manage their costs accordingly. One of these costs (and normally a substantial one), is that of their utilities supply – especially for HMO (Houses in Multiple Occupation)/Serviced Accommodation operators.
During David's talk, he will cover several topics, including:
- The importance of having a strategy for managing utility costs.
- How to get commerical utility rates (cheaper and very easy) for domestic use property
- How to pay only 5% VAT on commercial rates, not 20%
- How to reduce the associated hassle involved in managing your portfolio’s utilities.
- How to protect yourself from price increases and additional charges.
