The topics are:

How to do a development appraisal  

A development appraisal is the financial assessment that establishes the viability of a project and is an essential tool for any would-be developer to master. 

This practical and hands on two-hour session will walk you through how to assess a development opportunity and run the numbers before committing to a project.

Led by Gus Zogolovitch, this is will be a hands-on session featuring a live project and will include time for attendees to get advice on their own schemes.

Part of the session will cover a practical element on how to do an appraisal and will include an example that you can take away and adapt for your own project.
