John Semens and Malcolm Scott
With literally just 30 seconds of intense blackmail, extortion and bribery (I'm good), Malcolm Scott (Mascot Property Services), without so much as a cough, immediately grasped the baton dropped by a guest pulled elsewhere to turn in a superb performance alongside fellow guest John Semens, who both discuss surviving the first full anniversary of Home Information Packs (HIPs).
John Semens, an independent Domestic Energy Assessor (DEA), was left high and dry last year following the collapse of Habitus. Through sheer force of will and tenacity, he survived the last twelve months and recently re-accredited for his second year - although he concedes he is nervous about the year ahead.
After a remarkably tough and uncertain year to begin any new career tied to the property sector, John and Malcolm share their survival stories.
Listen: DEA Roundtable 3
- Surviving (and pulling through) the collapse of Habitus
- Coping with the really busy periods, and the troughs
- Fees and overheads
- Panels - a service or hindrance?
- Marketing - John and Malcolm share what has worked, and what's not
- Angry dogs and cannabis farms
Plus of course, more, much more - more than your TP gave you, more than your accreditation scheme gave you, more than Govt. gave you.
Many thanks to both John and Malcolm.
