We are a small club that meets monthly over food and beer at a local establishment. There is usually a lot of lively discussion and occasionally be get a good speaker to help us in our businesses. A few joint ventures have happen between members and we are always sharing opportunities with the group.

On Wednesday evening we have a great speaker joining us, who many of us have heard of; Harry Stinson will be joining us to discuss his "Developer U" educational program.

In a nutshell, Developer U is a "Training Project" where you will be involved first hand in the whole process, from site selection, to
design, zoning, permits, sales & marketing, construction, occupancy, and
final closings.

Who is Harry Stinson?

"Best known as a developer, Stinson`s 44 year entrepreneurial career has
been an ongoing blend of hospitality, entertainment and real estate.

His presentation will include highlights of starting, owning and
operating restaurants, theatres and hotels, producing major live
concerts, running real estate brokerage, hosting television and radio
shows, developing condominiums and restoring historic buildings in
Toronto, Hamilton and Niagara Falls, New York. While many of his ideas
were initially considered unconventional, or even `impractical"
Stinson`s track record of predicting and even creating new markets,
products and services has consistently proven accurate.

Among his best known ventures have been the Groaning Board (Toronto`s
1st non-smoking, `healthy` restaurant), Candy Factory Lofts (the project
that launched Toronto`s downtown condo boom), 1 King West (51 storey
condo hotel that is the world`s slenderest building and Toronto`s
highest occupancy hotel), Stinson School Lofts (kick-starting Hamilton`s
downtown renaissance), and now the Hotel Niagara (in Niagara Falls, New

This is not a big presentation but more of a friendly get together. We expect 30-40 people. If you are interested in more details please reach out to me directly so we can provide a count a reserve appropriate space.

Hi! As a realtor, I live and invest in London. I was a REIN member 8 years ago, for 3 years, and just rejoined. If there is, or you’d like to get a group together, let me know.
