Create Your Property Business

Would you like to create a business that everyone on the Times Rich List has in common? Would you like to know how you can generate continuous revenue regardless of the market conditions? Would you like to know how you can start a business with minimal funds or grow your cash pot in the fastest possible way? Then this seminar is perfect for you. In this seminar one of the UK’s leading business and property experts Kam Dovedi will be sharing with you why property is an asset class you must be investing in to create a safe, secure and sustainable income. Kam Dovedi will share with you tried and tested systems he has used to build up his own multimillion pound property business, and how you can do exactly the same to create profits and income that will allow you to lead the life of your choice. This seminar will also answer one of the most important questions being asked right now by many new investors, which is: “How do I start correctly in business and succeed?” Kam Dovedi will be showing you real life case studies of different strategies he has implemented within his property business, with their disadvantages and advantages, so you can decide which strategy is best for you, according to how much time (or no time), money (or no money) and experience (or no experience) you have. This content filled seminar will leave you feeling more confident, clear, and relaxed about starting your property business.

Unlocking efficiency, consistency & profitability for your whole business

Traditionally, CRM (Customer Relationship Management) was a tool used only by the Sales department. Now, with advances in technology, and the need for businesses to share information across all departments, siloed “CRM for Sales” systems are being replaced by Business Application platforms from the likes of Microsoft and Salesforce. Join this seminar to learn how a modern Business Application can drive efficiency, consistency and profitability across your entire business.
