MPG Ambasador Carl Lomas MBE talks networking, clean air cycling and Aston Martin challenges from furniture stores at the MPG network
November's MPG event had a charity focus with fast cars and fresh air, big on informal networking between property developers, service providers, professional accountants and lawyers. MPG guru Jason Roper showcased a recent MPG challenge raising funds for the Mahdlo charity.
Labelled Man v Machine, an Aston martin against a race cycle, from Arighi Bianchi in Macclesfield at prime rush hour to the Albert Square Chop House venue of the MPG group. Bubbles of champaign on success and choice, the clean air cycle smasshed the time by over ten minutes, may have been need for a shower mind! Big applause all round and loads of money raised for the charity.
Meanwhile the MPG group has gained an enviable reputation for informal network and the opportunity to exchange knowledge and ideas, as diverse as dealing with rates on listed buildings to planning application between commercial and residential split, help to buy deals on interest rates and values that make sales work. Dealing with the best solutions as a developer, that's the network mix that makes MPG a magic spot to exchange ideas.
