David Johnston – The Property Planner’s Golden nugget: I’m a big believer in learning from history, I have comfort and faith that we will get through this and recover. We’ve recovered in the past and we haven’t had the level of tech and medicine that we have now, we will bounce back. There’s starting to be a bit of history that suggests now we bounce back faster. We have capability to shut down fast and also in the reverse on the way out. One of my perpetual favourite phrases is that ‘necessity is the mother of invention’, we’ll see great inventions coming through. Another one is that history may never repeat itself, but it usually rhymes.
Cate Bakos- The Property Buyer’s Golden nugget: if you’re thinking about jumping into market now, waiting for a sign, waiting for a bell to ring, have a good think about what that bell means to you. At what point is this your signal, rather than waiting for the masses to jump in, determine what gives you confidence, give it a KPI context, so that when the bell rings, you’re jumping in when you should be.
