Luton October 2019 Meeting
Push the big red planning button - Linda Wright MBA DipTP
Linda is a planning consultant advising and obtaining planning permission for property developers and investors across England and Wales. She is a key note speaker, writer and guest lecturer at Manchester, Liverpool and Bolton universities
She has enjoyed a successful 35-year career in planning in both the public and private sectors – with the result that she has usually seen most planning problems before. Her pragmatic approach and insight into the planning system have been described as ‘invaluable’. She is truly a gamekeeper turned poacher.
Linda’s presenting style is both informative and entertaining – she says ‘Let’s face it the English planning system can be a minefield so we have to inject a little humour to make it tolerable.’
The USP on her CV is that she worked for several years as a senior planner for the Government on the island of Bermuda.
Linda's presentation for 2018 is ‘Push the Big Red Planning Button’ – where she invites you to ‘press a button’ on some of the planning and property issues trending at the moment. There are 12 topics to choose from.
ALSO... When life gives you lemons, make lemonade! – How to persist your way to property success - Rupal Patel
Nobody said investing was easy (and if they did, they’ve never done it). Investing is straight forward, but not easy. Rupal Patel and her husband Guy Brown, Top Performers in Simon Zutshi’s Mastermind program, started their property journey with one single-let, a big goal… and a lot of persistence. As they built up their HMO (Houses of Multiple Occupation) portfolio, they faced planning problems, tenant problems, mortgage problems, builder problems, and pretty much every other problem an investor could face.
So she knows it’s not easy.
But by persisting through all the setbacks and thinking expansively, they built up a property portfolio worth over 1.3 million pounds that earns over 60k in net income – and built it in only ten months.
At this month's pin meeting, Rupal will share their story: sourcing strategies, deals, hurdles, and how they overcame each one. Their “Pick ‘n Mix” portfolio, as she calls it, now includes single-lets, HMO's, and rent-to-rents sourced through multiple channels.
During Rupal’s talk, you’ll learn:
- How to respond to most challenges you’ll face
- Who you need in your “power team” to help you succeed
- How to source properties, no matter what your strategy
- DIY tips that saved hundreds
- And why you shouldn’t pour cement down your drains!
By the end of the presentation, you’ll leave knowing how to achieve your property goals, no matter how big or terrifying… and you’ll be inspired to start making more lemonade!
