Women in Leadership Summit 2018

Women in Leadership Summit 2018

Crave Property Advisory is proud to sponsor this profile event comprising four days of empowering talks and workshops.

The Leadership Institute’s (TLI) inaugural WILS event saw over 350 delegates attend four days of keynote sessions, panel discussions, networking opportunities, workshops and training courses.

TLI brought together some of Australia’s most successful women in the Corporate, NFP, Government, Media, and Sports sectors. Building on the success of 2017’s event, WILS is back and better than ever. 2018’s theme is about ‘Empowerment’ and aims to answer the following questions:

  • How can you empower yourself on your career journey to reach the executive?
  • How can you, as a leader or manager, help empower others around you?
  • How can your organisation be an agent of change and a symbol of empowerment?

Personal development, self-motivation and career progression are key to reaching the executive level. Studies have shown that having a strong female role model or mentor can help go a long way in developing your management and leadership skills and encourages one to further develop professionally. Ultimately, these factors often lead to more women in senior leadership roles.

Comprised of inspiring stories from the C-Suite, case-studies of effective leadership and management approaches and insight from Australia’s most successful entrepreneur’s, WI.L.S 2018 aims to contribute to your professional development, build the skills necessary to reach the executive and help you realise your career goals.

Wealth Workout - Property Masterclass

Wealth Workout - Property Masterclass

Held Thursday 13 July 2017 6pm

Property investment is one of the primary ways Australians build lasting wealth, but most investors start highly under-educated. Expert knowledge can be hard to find and unwary buyers can fall into the trap of commission-based sales where information can be influenced towards ‘stock’ instead of strategic purchases.

The Wealth Workout Property Master class is designed to fast-track your property investment education. Crave will join Tristan Scifo from Innovative Wealth Management to present a consise overview of the property universe. We’ll cover various beginner and advanced property investment strategies, discuss current market dynamics and expose myths about the new property market.

The event caters for investors at various stages along the education curve, including those looking to move beyond a single investment property, renovators aiming to complete their own DIY projects and also caters well for first time investors needing a full picture of the investment process ahead of them and looking to pick up pointers on where to start.

The Wealth Workout Property Master class is for anyone who:

  • – wants to crystallise their property investment strategy
  • – is in the process of building wealth through property
  • – desires to meet experienced and non-biased property professionals
  • – loves to learn
  • – desires to live a more purposeful life.
    Where: Blue Chilli, 125 York St, Sydney
    When: 6pm (registration and refreshments), 6:30pm – 8:30pm (event)
    Price: FREE (membership required), $10 for non-members

    WEALTH WORKOUTS are live, dynamic, public events run to help people get control of their financial life and live purpose-driven lives. Most of us never learnt this stuff at school. It’s such a shame. But our minds are always ready to learn, and we need to exercise our money just as much as we need to exercise our bodies.

    WEALTH WORKOUTS are hosted by Tristan Scifo and the team at Innovative Wealth Management. IWM is a Sydney-based financial advice and coaching business which is passionate about helping people uncover and live out their purpose. IWM believe that money education is key to our society’s health. Come join the community and get your wealth working for you!

    Radisson Hotel, 72 Liverpool St, Sydney

    Our focus this month was on the range of small lot development projects suitable for ‘first time’ developers. This includes duplexes, splitter blocks and town house projects to name a few. With our cities and suburbs changing rapidly, small-lot developments provide a way to make solid blocks of cash and equity if managed correctly.

    Our guest speaker was Pino Martino from GPM Architecture. Pino is a celebrated architect with more than 25 years’ experience in designing and developing across Australia.

    We covered key concepts including :
    * identifying your development project
    * successful design
    * managing the process.

    We also covered our usual topic of market performance, and provided an opportunity for questions and debate on where the market is heading.

    Stay tuned for our next event, which will be announced in the next few weeks.
