Here's What Others Say About Lisa
"Lisa Dudson was an inspiring speaker at one of our Waikato Property Investor meetings. Speaking to a packed audience of about 300 members, she provided meaty, informative concepts for managing one’s finances and growing wealth overall. We encouraged our members to bring their children and were pleased to see them patiently absorbing Lisa’s nuggets of information for almost two hours! An impressive feat in itself! An accomplished businesswoman with an easy listening style and obvious enthusiasm for sharing her financial knowledge, Lisa made this one of our most memorable and talked about meetings.

Annual General Meeting - Landlord of the Year 2015, Angela Strang
OPIA Property Hub

Welcome to the 42nd Annual General Meeting of the OPIA. Following on from the AGM we will hear from Angela Strang of Southland who won the MBIE Landlord of the Year competition in 2015. Angela started investing at an early age and now has a solid property portfolio which has enabled her to become the mistress of her own destiny. As the oldest child of a solo parent on the domestic purposes benefit, she developed self-reliance and an entrepreneurial bent at a young age. In the past, those traits have led her to drive tractors in the UK and put in the hard yards in Western Australia’s tough mining industry. But these days they serve her well as she manages, maintains and further cultivates her investment property holdings.

Looking forward to seeing you at Forbury Park Function Centre on Tuesday 21st June, networking from 7.00pm with the formalities of the evening commencing at 7.30pm.

The Great Shares vs Property Debate
OPIA Property Hub
15/03/16 - 7.00 for 7.30pm

The Shares vs Property debate is one of those mortal battles – Ford vs Holden, Auckland vs Queenstown, Armani vs Calvin Klein. Each has its diehards with their own set of statistics that prove that one is a better bet than the other.

Both arguments are pushed by vested interests: money managers rake in billions a year by taking a tiny slither of your investment and making it theirs (via asset-based fees), and there’s an entire industry of agents, banks, politicians and retailers that feed off a strong property market.

Come along and listen to both perspectives from young investors, Haley and Johnny van Leeuwen. Haley is an investment advisor at Craigs Investment Partners and deals with shares on a daily basis. Johnny on the other hand spends his days renovating their properties and working on finding and adding the next deal to their portfolio. When they are not working on properties or shares, both Haley and Johnny enjoy competing in mountain biking competitions, taking out several medals and bragging rights along the way.

Looking forward to seeing you at Forbury Park Function Centre on Tuesday 15th March, networking from 7.00pm with the formalities of the evening commencing at 7.30pm.

Thank you to our major sponsor, ANZ bank for providing the raffle prizes. Bring along your small change or eftpos will be available for you to buy your raffle tickets. Proceeds go towards purchasing resources for our members.

The library will be on display - feel free to browse through and select the books you wish to take away with you or return the books you have at home.
