Who are some of the panellists and Speakers/Key Attendees

Nicole Bremner | East Eight & London Central Developments

For Nicole Bremner, property was not an obvious choice. An ex-banker with three kids to work around, she'd tried all the usuals - photography, cooking, even crochet. None of them allowed her to contribute to the family finances in the way she wanted.

With her first property development being her own home in 2010, Nicole is now working on over £130m+ GDV and releasing a book about her journey into the world of property and entrepreneurship. Most recently, she has embraced crowdfunding as a way to bring high-end property investment to the smaller investor.

What makes this event different to other similar events?

One of the Key focuses for this event is the Networking and one part of this is the Structured Networking Session which this time will be led by Sara Nasralla.

Sara is an active Property Developer & Investor, with a small portfolio of properties in East London. She has a Bachelor’s Degree in Economics from the University of Manchester, and has a professional background focused on business growth and development.

Sara started her journey in property with buy-to-lets in East London. After attending networking events and learning about the industry it became clear that in order to make large gains in property, with the uncertainty, competition and legislative changes that have taken place over the past year, property development needed to be her focus.

Over the past 6 months, Sara has dedicated her time to forming partnerships with agents, architects and developers in order to find opportunities and to thrive as a developer. She's currently looking at a number of deals in and around East London including proposals to JV directly with vendors. She'll be joining the panel to talk about the difficulties she's facing in making the step from BTL to developer and how she's overcoming these hurdles.

When will details of the January 2018 Agenda and Speakers be published?

Reviews of the previous summits:

High quality of attendees and even as a finance broker there was a lot for me to learn. For example, obtaining planning permission does not guarantee that the build can go through as there may be a variety of restrictions such as issues with party wall agreements or building regulations. Information like this is invaluable for serious investors and developers. Definitely worth attending!

Augusta Onyiuke-Eluma, Partner at Foster Denovo

A very informative event with a lot of experts on show. Great technical and interesting information on recent developments and an in depth insights into the stories of established developers investors and property professionals.

Mahfuz Rahman, Associate Solicitor at Ronald Fletcher Baker LLP

Thanks for a fantastic day at the Development Summit. You had a some great speakers on a varied range of topics. I particularly enjoyed Nicole Bremner of East Eight, talking on building your property brand and the panel featuring Richard Bowser of Property Investor News, who talked about scaling your business.

There was a real buzz in the room and I met some great connections.

Really looking forward to the event next year and I’m sure it will be bigger and better.

Luke Skelton, Director

The Property Development Summit was a very informative day for serious property investors & developers. Brendan attracts both quality speakers to his events and quality attendees. Given the downturning market, I would recommend the next Development Summit to any property investors who are active in the current market.

An excellent one day event with a good mix of interesting presentations and insightful panel discussions – all at a surprisingly low cost.

Ruban Selvanayagam, Property Investor and Blogger

I thoroughly enjoyed attending the Property Summit in June 2017. I was impressed with the calibre of the speakers and panellists, who shared a lot of value on topics such as planning, air rights development and how to grow my property business. This is definitely an event I will attend again and recommend it to other property investors and developers too.
