Thursday 4th July 2024, from 6:00pm to 9:00pm

AUDIENCE WITH: Property Tycoon and Philantropist, PROFESSOR PETER VIRDEE

LOCATION: London, The City

TIME: From 6:00pm to 9:00pm

 

We’re delighted to be joined by Professor Peter Virdee; philanthropist, entrepreneur, mentor, investor and advisor - one of the UK’s most successful businessmen. A founding partner of B&S Property, a global development company with £4bn assets under management. He’s also seriously connected, having rubbed shoulders with the Queen, chatted with David Cameron, and even dined with Al Pacino. He’s worth millions, not that he mentions money. He’s far too discreet.

On the outside, given his flamboyant attire and flashy cars, you could be forgiven for thinking that he’s an egotistical maniac, but in fact the opposite is quite true. In person, he is humble and down-to-earth, with a huge passion for philanthropy and safeguarding the future of Britain’s young people. Indeed, far from being driven by ego, he puts his success down to God.

 

Rewind to the early 80s and Peter was just another kid living in inner-city Birmingham with no idea what to do in life. After working as a trainee pharmacist and then a brief stint importing and trading ladies' silk clothing from India, Peter went on to join the family business. By the time he was in his late teens his parents had successfully built up a business in residential care homes, and he was sent to Lancashire to build up that region. It proved to be a good learning curve: a chance to leave Birmingham and spread his entrepreneurial wings.

 

Having proved himself at business, Peter’s father offered him a role in the family’s joint venture property development company in London, called B&S Property. The rest, as they say, is history. Together, with a team of committed partners, Peter built up the company from the ground up, and today they’re responsible for developing and managing a global portfolio of properties.

 

In recent years, Peter has expanded into other areas including commodities trading, insurance and renewable energy – all businesses that link back to his core interest, property.

 

Peter has set up The Virdee Foundation. The Foundation works in conjunction with a wide variety of charities, but its core aim is to help women and children who have or who are in danger of suffering mental, physical or sexual abuse. Another issue Peter focuses on, particularly in Britain, is helping young people to realise their potential – particularly in inner-city areas. Peter’s Foundation also took up the service of restoring The Central Gurudwara, London, making it the most environmentally friendly Gurudwara in the World. In 2017, The Virdee Foundation partnered with Children in Crisis to build The Virdee School in Bibangwa, Congo, currently educating 165 children.

 

We’re privileged that Peter has agreed to spend a couple of hours with the Club. Join us for an evening of ‘inspired access’ and meet this incredible entrepreneur, business leader and philanthropist. A one-of-a-kind opportunity we’re privileged to be able to bring to you.
