On Friday 24th February 2017, Lefand held its Annual Building and Property Summit.

The day was a massive success with approx. 350 attendees from the Property & Construction Industry in attendance. The feedback and response we received from everyone was overwhelmingly positive.

The day started with registration and drinks on arrival where attendees got to meet and greet each other in a relaxed forum. Legends of Australian Sports & Celebrity such as Mike Whitney, Anthony Maroon, Wendell Sailor and John Mangos were part of the VIP room where select guests had the opportunity to mingle, take photos and have some fun.

Once guests were seated, the MC for the day Anthony Maroon addressed the attendees and introduced the panel of speakers. Key note speakers included Mark Bouris – Yellow Brick Road and Celebrity Apprentice, Julian Sedgwick – Crown Group (head of Sales & Marketing), David Koch – Small Business, Kerry Chikarovski – Former MP.

Discussions amongst the panel members kept the audience engaged, providing for a relaxed but informative session with the opportunity for questions and answers from the floor. General discussions centred around Construction, Property and Investments in the Australian market both current and looking at the forecast years ahead. When discussions looked to get off track, David Koche did a great job as arbitrator of keeping the panel in line with his quip humour and engagement.

A big attraction on the day was the presence of the Lefand sponsored Mariani Top Fuel Dragster on-site and driver Mark Mariani making an impact and providing opportunity for attendees to view and have their photo taken with the car and the team.

Guests also had the opportunity to join in and be a part of the silent auction on display with a number of exhibits and memorabilia up for sale with all profits going to charity.


Networking and the opportunity to make and build business relationships was a big part of the event as was the main focus and take-away for the day. Delegates took full advantage of this opportunity towards the end of the event with many connections made, partnerships formed and business created.

Not only did the day bring everyone together and help form and build on-going mutual business and personal relationships, it also raised much needed funds for the 2 charities – Camp Quality and Biaggio Signorelli Foundations which Lefand are proud to be associated with.
