Catch up with me in person at Gold Coast (& see me speak live)

Gold Coast event

Look out!

Next month I'll be speaking again at a 5 day event on the Gold Coast in Queensland, and this year I have some outstanding content and insights to bring to you, even if I do say so myself!

As you can probably tell, I'm rather excited about this, and have been working on fine-tuning my presentation this week.

I was one of the presenters last year at Wealth Retreat, and will be there as a speaker - and for the full 5 day event - towards the end of May, which is now only next month.

You can read a bit about the event here.

You can read about why you might want to attend the event here, and a bit about some of the other speakers here.

The Wealth Retreat website also provides a range of testimonials, but actually I'll just quickly summarise below a few of the reasons why this might be an event for you to consider:

-the event is spread over 5 days so there is ample chance for you to meet with the presenters (including yours truly) one-on-one over the course of the week

-this is the longest running event of its kind in Australia, and as such has a proven track record of success and achieving the desired results

-this will be my last speaking event in Australia in 2016 due to other commitments, so if you'd like to meet in persons or if you have any questions for's your last chance!

As noted previously, I'll be speaking on the first day, but make no mistake I'll be around for the full five days, and here's why...

Firstly, because Wealth Retreat is an event where it's fine to talk openly to like-minded people about money, investment and wealth, and strategies for success.

It's a week within which you and I can dedicate the time and effort required to ensure our investment and wealth success.

That's not always easy to find the time for in today's busy world.

It's also a huge networking opportunity - I'm still in regular contact with many of last year's attendees, and we still chat often about out shared experiences.

The content? Yes! Specialists in their field and experienced investors who have achieved their goals talk about their most up-to-date strategies, insights, and success philosophies, relating to the economy, property markets, small business, share trading, tax, and much more.

I guess different people have a different number one reason for attending, and here's mine: Wealth Retreat holds me accountable for my success.

Last year I set a list of a dozen goals to achieve in the 2015/16, and I can't wait to get back to Gold Coast and share with a group of like-minded people how I've booted everyone one of them into the back of the net!

In fact, looking back over the past year it's hard to believe what I've achieved in several different aspects of my life, including attracting business from overseas, from hedge funds, and increasing my media exposure, while my portfolio has gone from strength to strength (at a time when most people seem to be worrying about volatility and downside risk).

I can't say for certain that was all down to my goal-setting at last year's Wealth Retreat, but I'll certainly be back this year to tee up another 10 massive goals, and you know what, I can't wait to kick them too.

As one of the presenters over the week, I have access to an early bird special rate for few tickets, which works out to be about 20 per cent cheaper.

If you're interested, drop me a line at - numbers are limited, obviously, so be quick. 

Look forward to catching up over coffee with you next month!
