The purpose of Qandor is to ensure members meet the right people. Our aim is to build a connected, supportive and potent community, and make relevant and valuable introductions between members. In order to do this, we must create the best environments for members to meet and build quality relationships that will enable them to grow their businesses.
We work closely with our members and we know them well. Generally, members are involved in projects of certain sizes and placing members into groups accordingly means they will attend the right events and meet the most relevant people first.
Qandor offers a variety of membership options:
For executive directors and leaders of substantial businesses:
Q. Exec Forum: Pipeline of projects: £100m GDV minimum
This forum was created to extend our network and include firms involved in major construction projects. This group delivers continuous opportunities to collaborate with members of other groups and brings enormous value to the club. Membership is priced favourably to make it budget-friendly.
The following membership options are available to investors and SME business owners:
Q.10 Forum: Project sizes £1m to £10m GDV
Q.10 Plus Forum: Project sizes: £10m GDV minimum
Q.100 Plus Forum: Pipeline of projects: £100m GDV minimum
The Founding Forum is where it all began:
The Founding Forum: Mostly £1m to £4m GDV but up to £15m GDV
With a curated membership of investors, developers, architects, construction business owners, debt advisors, quantity surveyors, planning consultants and other experts, members meet once a month and explore challenges, goals and opportunities. It’s a dynamic and supportive group, where members learn rapidly and collaborate on projects.
For graduates of the Founding Forum who are still in the start-up phase of their businesses. Q. Forum members continue working with the club and enjoy the benefits – they have access to Qandor support, our network, our events and topical workshops that focus on specific challenges and attributes of property and business.
Overseas members benefit from discounted membership:
International Forum: For members who live overseas and will not be able to attend more than three events per annum
We work with a carefully selected group of Family Offices:
Family Office Forum: Suitable for ultra-high-net-worth investors or the private team of a single family or UHNW investor who is actively involved in the property sector, either operationally or as an investor
We are proud to support and work with our Affiliates. They offer our members special rates:
Affiliate Membership: Available to corporates that are willing to make special offers to deliver products and services that support our members’ businesses or lifestyles, or those of our extended network via our public events and marketing channels.
More than just networking
Ironically the club is full of members who dislike networking. Large rooms, mostly full of strangers is not for them. They don’t have the time. They don’t like small talk. They understand that meeting someone once, rarely leads to business.
Qandor makes it possible for members to meet the right people in relaxed environments, to forge relationships and get to know one another properly over time.
Whether members regularly attend events or never have the time, the club’s Relationship Management team is incentivised to help members as much as possible and deliver support. This includes introducing members to discuss a particular challenge, opportunity or piece of new business. Obviously we like our members to attend events and be involved but it’s not crucial. Simply being part of our network offers tremendous value.
As the club continues to grow, more rewards from affiliates are made available to members and for many members, the value of the discounts they receive, exceeds the cost of being in the club!
