TALKS & SPEAKERS
Thursday 15 October
TALK 1 /
Graham Caldow of Red Giraffe Property
Creating Brand Equity in Property
Graham’s artistic background meant he was able to design the look of Red Giraffe projects to create genuine co-living spaces. The use of strong block colour schemes, functional design and maximising space has meant strong demand for the product. Spaces for customers to socialise with each other means the houses have a different feel to them, a dynamic that encourages interactions. He puts this down to research, getting the right training, in this case on Simon Zutshi’s Mastermind Programme, and having the courage to be different.
Creating Brand Equity matters because:
- Building Brand Equity is about building trust
- Once you have trust from customers, it drives their buying decisions
- Brand Equity builds customer loyalty
- Brand Equity supports pricing premiums
- Brand Equity supports business expansion

LATEST NEWS AND SPEAKER BLOG POSTS /
There is no doubt in my mind that, unfortunately, the UK is going to slip into recession. This means that businesses will close and people will lose their jobs. As a result, the property market will see a fall in prices.
Personally, I don’t think it will be a crash as big as the 2008/2009 property crash. Let’s be honest, no one really knows what will happen to property prices. But if I had to take a guess, I would say that I think it could be an average of 15% reduction in values. Some areas may be more and some areas may be less.
So what makes me say 15%? Well the Bank of England have said, they think this could be the drop in house prices. I think many property surveyors have taken this on board.
I am in the process of re-mortgaging a number of my properties, one of which is a large house in Halifax. I converted this into 7 apartments about 6 years ago.
Powering up your Investing with Contribution Compass
You will have heard the phrase that property is a people business, but what does that mean?
I’d like to share some thoughts around this topic that hopefully will give you a new perspective on how you can make this work for you.
I started my property journey proper back in 2011 after running the New York Marathon. That was quite a pivotal time for me as there were many changes in my life. In the intervening years I have had many learning experiences, some of which were quite extreme. This has made me stronger and more resilient but also better equipped to help others achieve success.
My first speaking engagement since returning from 6 months in Australia was in Kensington, London. The West London Property Network was welcoming and offered food and drink in the ticket price too.
If you couldn’t make it, don’t worry, here’s some of the key points to help you.
Education: When starting out make sure you learn with someone who is also investing and who’s values you relate to. Check them out on social media, look for reviews and speak to people who are learning with them.
