The Property Development Fast Track workshop is an intensive three-day virtual workshop for those looking to ‘fast track’ their route into property development.
"I joined the Property Development 3 day Fast Track Workshop with a view to see how we can move our property business forward from single lets and HMO’s. Now after the 3 days and a day to absorb it I’m completely blown away with the content and delivery. I can’t believe the depth we’ve been able to go through in just 3 days and highlighted for me so many shortcomings of the way we have been doing things and now we know, we’ll be doing things very differently on the next projects we’ve got lined up.
The workshop has enabled me to overcome my own mindset hurdles to move our business to the next level. It has opened my eyes up to so many potential opportunities and the level of due diligence required to ensure that we mitigate as many of the risks upfront. I feel re-energized by putting on paper our 5-year plan and focusing on why we need to do this.
Thank you to Ian and Ritchie and the team for going above and beyond and answering every single question I and other people had throughout the workshop!” found the 3-day course a very good introduction to property development. Ritchie and Ian know their stuff.

I can recommend the propertyCEO Fast Track course as an excellent first step to understanding small scale property development. All aspects were covered and presented well with a high level of professionalism by both Ritchie and Ian drawing upon their many years of experience. The combined approach of ensuring a correct mindset, focus on the importance of planning and all with good technical advice is what makes this course stand out. Thank you both.

This 3-day virtual workshop is being hosted by the two founders of propertyCEO, Ritchie Clapson and Ian Child in person, who bring together nearly 70 years of property and business experience.
The workshop is highly exclusive, with only limited spaces available at each event. This ensures we can get to know students personally and answer everyone’s questions, something that would be difficult in a larger group.
This is currently your ONLY chance to get full access to Ritchie and Ian outside of the flagship Mentorship Programme.
However, please note that this workshop comes with the following health warning:
Property development is not a get-rich-quick occupation, and while it can create life-changing wealth, this necessarily takes time, hard work, perseverance, and skill. Like all wealth-creation strategies, it also carries a degree of risk. Please do NOT attend the workshop unless you are prepared to put in the necessary work needed to get results.
One of the key benefits of this workshop is that you will be personally trained by Ritchie and Ian, the two founders and co-owners of propertyCEO. Let's take a look at their backgrounds:
Ritchie has been involved in property development for over 37 years, and as co-founder of propertyCEO, he coaches both novice and experienced property developers how to create substantial returns from small-to-medium scale developments
Ian has over 30 years’ experience in corporate leadership, having led a pan-European business unit for one of the world’s largest private equity companies, with responsibility for nine-figure top-line annual revenues
When we started propertyCEO, our aim was to provide the highest quality mentorship programmes for people who were SERIOUS about getting results from property development.
We knew first-hand that there were a lot of holes that first-time developers can fall down, mainly because they simply didn't know what they didn't know. Even experienced developers can easily get caught out - and many do.
But avoiding the pitfalls is only half the story - the other massive benefit of training lies in being able to see opportunity where others can't. Avoiding problems can SAVE you money, but being able to spot opportunities can MAKE you money.
Our focus was always on students getting started on their first development, rather than simply adding another training manual to their bookshelf.
That meant a lot of one-to-one time, a great deal of content, and the creation of a complete end-to-end training package covering every aspect of development. It also meant helping students develop their business skills as well as fine-tuning their mindset to help remove things that were getting in the way.
This has evolved into our 6-month Mentorship Programme, which has gone from strength to strength, to become what we believe is the finest coaching programme of its type, anywhere.
However, we recognised that, while the Mentorship Programme can get amazing results for students, it's also a big commitment. Not everyone has the time, money, or appetite to commit.
Plus, some people feel they already have enough information to get started in development. What they need is some highly focused training that just covers the key areas that will make the biggest difference to them.
So, that's when we decided to create the Property Development Fast Track Workshop. We've taken the key areas where we believe we can add the most value to developers who are looking to get started, and put it into a highly interactive format delivered over just 3 days.
And of course, we recognised that some people want to see for themselves how good our training is before making a commitment to be trained by us. So we made sure that:
So what exactly are these key skills that we teach budding developers on the Fast Track Workshop?
Well, we cover six of the most important aspects of development:
We made it a workshop where students are ACTIVELY involved, and not just watching from the sidelines. That's why we keep the numbers deliberately low. This is all about QUALITY and not QUANTITY.
We also include practical tools that you can use to great effect when hunting for deals. Deal analysers, workbooks, and templates - all designed to make your deal hunting easier and quicker.
PLUS we help you create a personal roadmap for the next stage of your journey, whether that be with propertyCEO or on your own.
And we made sure that we didn't farm the training out to junior trainers who are only one step ahead of their students. You are trained by Ritchie and Ian in person.
Finally, we wanted to give students a lasting, tangible benefit from attending the Workshop. So not only does each student get a comprehensive workbook sent to them in advance, they will also get access after the workshop to our online training portal. Here they will be able to access a specially edited video recording of the Fast Track Workshop that they can refer back to. They will also be able to download the deal analysers and templates included in the deal, together with full video instructions on how to use them.
A Global Recession
The UK has gone into recession, and this ALWAYS creates opportunities for developers. However, opportunity only comes to developers that take action at the time – the rest get to look back in years to come and say ‘if only I got into development back in 2021…’
Planning Reform Is Happening NOW
The planning system in the UK is undergoing its most radical overhaul ever – and the government’s focus is on making it easier for development projects to go ahead
More Permitted Development Rights
Permitted Development Rights are on the increase, allowing properties to be converted more quickly and with less risk. The government is planning to add further PD rights in August 2021, and these will be game-changing!
There's A Massive Housing Shortage
There is a national housing crisis and new homes are desperately needed. The government has already flagged that it is small-scale developers that hold the key, particularly when it comes to converting brown-field sites
The High Street Is Evolving
The UK’s high streets are dying, and there is a need to create residential and co-living spaces in and around our towns, in order to rejuvenate them
Working Patterns Have Changed
COVID-19 has fundamentally changed the way people work. Working from home means less demand for city offices and more demand for local, flexible workspaces – two great opportunities that developers are able to capitalise on
propertyCEO's Fast Track 3-day course is exactly what it claims to be: a well-rounded, super-packed, and fairly intensive overview of some of the key dimensions of property development. Unlike other property training courses I've undertaken, all questions were answered as the course progressed and there were no holds barred i.e. this training is about a real development journey, warts and all ('no-nonsense'). Ritchie and Ian's combined knowledge and experience are second to none and this shines through the entire 3 days. The provision of an actual physical workbook through the post was a nice touch as well. Overall, I would thoroughly recommend this Fast Track training course for anyone interested in getting involved in property development.

And if that wasn’t enough, we’re likely to see a major adjustment in the price of non-residential property, as some businesses go bust and others downsize.
Yet we have an urgent demand for new homes and different types of working and retail spaces.
It doesn’t take a genius to do the maths – now is a VERY interesting time for getting into development.
In fact, it feels like it could be a perfect storm.
So, there are lots of potential opportunities in development right now.
But there are also a lot of people that are turning to development because they NEED to take action due to what’s happened in 2020:
For others, it may be a case of working smarter when it comes to making money. As many investors have discovered, relying on stocks and shares to create wealth can be a roller-coaster ride, whereas it’s difficult for a piece of land to have its value wiped out.
Property development is also a highly leveraged model. What does this mean?
In fact, most people already use these skills daily in their everyday lives.
And with simple, small-scale development projects producing six-figure profits, it’s no wonder that many people are turning to development as a way of shoring up their future and building a financial safety net.
And for many, the impact will be life-changing.
We've put together a prospectus which gives you a detailed overview of exactly what we'll be covering on the three-day workshop.

I was slightly wary going into this course, due to the bad press/industry views on “just another property course” with hard up-sell at the end. I could not have been any more wrong! You guys are in a totally different bracket altogether.
Having left the course, I feel certainly somewhat exposed with my lack of knowledge in this field (this is good awareness). This is a direct result of the way you highlighted the amount we need to know and the potential consequences (losses) if one chooses to go into these types of systems un-educated. As you highlighted through the course; I now simply know what I do not know!
Again, once again, thank you so much for an amazing three days – Fantastic!

Where is the event being held?
It's a virtual workshop so you'll be joining from the comfort of your own home via your laptop, desktop, or device.
How many people will be at the workshop?
It can vary, however, we restrict the numbers so that we can have a direct relationship with each student, have time to answer everyone's questions, and also help each student create his or her personal roadmap.
Will I be learning actionable content at the workshop, or will I need to do your Mentorship Programme in order to get the good stuff?
Ok, here's the deal. We're not able to teach you EVERY facet of property development in just 3 days. But we CAN give you highly actionable content that will help you find deals, secure finance, help you gain credibility as a developer, and ensure that you leave with a comprehensive understanding of how to be successful in property development. For many people that's exactly the information they need to move forward - they aren't looking for any further training. For others, this workshop will not only help them understand what's involved in development, it will also allow them to assess whether they need further help in order to maximise their chances of success.
Will I get a workbook?
Yes, we aim to send out hard copy workbooks around 3-5 days ahead of the event
Will I be able to get a recording of the event?
All attendees will get access to a specially edited recording of one of the workshops, with lifetime access via our membership portal. That way if you miss any part of the workshop or simply need to refresh your memory later on, you'll be covered. Access is provided at the start of the week immediately following the Workshop.
How does the Fast Track Workshop integrate with your 6-month Mentorship Programme?
Some people may already feel that they have enough information to get into development straight away, in which case the Fast Track workshop is the perfect starting point for them. For others, the Mentorship Programme offers the best solution due to the sheer depth of content and support it provides. But we've designed the Fast Track workshop to complement the Mentorship Programme so that graduates of the workshop will gain a massive head start should they decide to enrol. We also reduce the Mentorship Programme fees by the amount you paid for the Fast Track workshop, so there's every reason to attend the workshop before committing to the 6-month programme.
I'm interested in the 6-Month Mentorship programme; what exactly does it cover?
"Comprehensive" barely does it justice. You can access full details HERE.
What if I find the workshop isn't for me, or I don't like the way you teach?
We want you to attend this event with ZERO risk. So, if you get to the half-way point of the workshop and feel that it's not for you, then simply let us know and we will give you a full refund. All we ask is that you return to us any course materials that we've sent you.
Will I get any deal analysis tools?
Yes. Being able to analyse deals quickly and effectively is ESSENTIAL for any developer, and we give you our 'IPAD' and 'DCAS' deal analyser workbooks, together with comprehensive instructions on how to use them, which are accessed via our training portal.
What other stuff will I receive?
You'll also receive our "Ten & Done!" Daily Planner plus our exclusive business plan templates.
It's always useful to hear from other aspiring developers who have been trained by propertyCEO, each with a unique background and history, but all with the common goal of becoming successful property developers.
Our weekly Open Door show takes place every Thursday at 7.00pm and is a great way to combine some property development education with a lot of fun. Inspiring and informative guests give the audience an inside track, all enriched by Ritchie and Ian's inimitable banter to create a highly entertaining 45 minutes. If you're new to propertyCEO, why not check out our YouTube channel and watch some of our previous Open Door shows, or you can register for the next show HERE.
