Support during the lock-down
We believe during the Corona Virus pandemic that it has never been more important for leaders to have a reliable source of information, insight, ideas and inspiration and we are even more firmly committed to supporting our members during this period.
Social distancing has caused us to re-think our meeting format, and has also prompted us to increase and improve our delivery by making the following changes and additional investments to our programme of support.
Expert Speaker Sessions
We continue to deliver sessions with our expert speakers as webinars. These webinars are exclusively for Property Academy members. We have decided to make all sessions available to all members. This means that instead of one speaker session every two months, members have access during this period to between 4 – 6 speaker sessions.
Industry Leaders & Legends
In addition to the speaker sessions, we are running hour-long webinars with industry leaders and legends. Again, these sessions are exclusive to Property Academy members and members of their teams.
Bi-Monthly Group Meetings
We continue to run the Group Meetings as webinars. The format focuses on specific issues and we’ve introduced virtual breakout rooms to allow for more interaction and collaboration between members.
Small Group Coaching Sessions
The situation is changing rapidly and so we have introduced smaller group sessions of between 4-8 non-competing members every 10 days. Their purpose is to enable more in-depth conversations with one another and with Peter, provide motivation, hold each other accountable, ensure that opportunities are maximised and that the business is in better shape after the crisis passes than going into it.
New members will receive a 1-1 consultation with business coach Peter Knight.
(Private consultations are normally charged at £900 per hour).
