Testimonials from previous summits
"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."

Luke Skelton
"This will be my third year of attending Brendan Quinn’s National Development Summit and what a great time to reflect at the start of the year.

At my first Summit, I was still in the process of writing my book The Complete Guide to Property Strategies and it helped me get clarity on where development sits relative to other strategies.  I realised development can sit anywhere, just as we can when attending the Summit – front, back or centre!  On the stage or in the audience!  We can move too, flexing our ability to do what’s right at the time.  Flex-ability is a great feature of development too!

Attending the Summit led me to invest through various crowdfunding platforms, when it wasn’t yet the right timing for me to do my own development project."
Angela Bryant
"I thoroughly enjoyed attending the Property Summit. I was impressed with the caliber of the speakers and panelists, 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."
