But, there's a problem

The problem is, the route from where you are now to where you want to be is not as clear as you’d like. You know there’s going to be the inevitable bends and bumps in the road, but you don’t really know what lies ahead and you don’t have a roadmap to guide you through it.
That can leave you feeling uncertain about what steps you should be taking. You want to navigate the world of property development but, without extensive knowledge or experience, it feels risky. There are so many pitfalls that could trip you up along the way, and you don’t want to get it wrong.

We have the roadmap!

With our backgrounds in engineering, construction, property and a combined 40+ years of board level experience, we truly understand what it takes to run a successful business.


Since leaving corporate in 2015, we have established multiple property businesses of our own. We’re also trustees of a SSAS pension and co-founders of the SSAS Alliance.


It is this deep understanding of what it takes to build strong foundations, anticipate the challenges, navigate the roadbumps and evolve at every stage of the journey that we bring to EquaAcademy.


We don’t take big risks and we don’t chase the quick wins. Our focus is on creating something sustainable. Something that will last for generations to come.

We created EquaAcademy so that everyone can win

We strongly believe that business is about creating wins. For everyone. No-one has to lose, so that someone else can gain more. Business is about creating something of value that everyone can benefit from. 


It’s also about people. In our various corporate roles, managing global infrastructure projects, we’ve led high-performing teams. We’ve mentored, nurtured and developed talent. It’s what we love to do and it’s an integral part of what we stand for.


EquaAcademy is about creating value and abundance, learning together and, above all, helping everyone step up and achieve more than they ever thought possible.

Now it's your turn

Every resource we create is with your success in mind. You really can create the future you want for you and your family. It takes intention and a good mentor to guide you. If you’ll provide the first, we’ll provide the second.


Leaving a powerful legacy for future generations

Creating something of value that we can pass on to our children, and our children’s children, is extremely important to us. 

For us, creating a legacy is also about passing on the skills, knowledge and mindset that will enable our family to grow and thrive for generations to come.

We have 8 children between us, all of whom are stakeholders in our company and some of whom are on salary, working together to build something for the future for all of us.
