So who are Midas Property Club?
Midas Property Club is a friendly and welcoming platform for investors of all levels. Our mission is to invite the best industry speakers to provide our attendees with all the knowledge they need to make their property journey a successful one. We are also great advocates of networking because we believe to peer-to-peer mentoring is one of the most powerful tools in the Property industry.
Since we started this event in January 2015, we pride ourselves to have built a loyal following of all sorts of Property professionals like Investors, Developers, Mortgage Brokers, Estate Agents, Architects, Solicitors, Tradesmen and more. So whatever contacts it is you’re looking for, we are happy to introduce you to any of our attendees to make you feel at home immediately.
So what kind of speakers do you usually have?
As mentioned before, we only invite the best industry speakers that have been actively investing or working in the Property industry and are happy to share their knowledge and experience with us. We have had all sort of speakers like seasoned Investors, Tax advisors, Mortgage brokers, Local Councils and even the Property Ombudsman. We touch on all sorts of investment related topics like different investment strategies, finance, tax issues, new regulations and so forth.
So what makes you different from any other events?
Unlike many of the Property events, we do not try to sell you any mentoring, books or courses. All we try to do is to provide an enabling environment where we share knowledge and experience. The only ‘selling’ we allow is that of offering real deals to our audience through our Deals Clinic, but rules apply.
