In this episode, we are also proud to present Ben Fish  (Co-Owner & Executive Director) at NewPlace Associates. Unfortunately, Joesph Garner, also Co-Owner & Director at NewPlace, was unable to make the Podcast so, Ben had to go at it solo. "NewPlace are a dynamic team of property strategists driven by an ambition to deliver and exceed client expectations.  We offer fully-integrated acquisition, design and construction services that reflect the preferences, requirements and vision of each project." Ben Fish began working as a carpenter in 1999, qualifying in 2001 working on prestigious projects such as Le Gavroche, Michelle Roux Jr’s flagship restaurant and the Vidall Sassoon school of hair in Mayfair. Following a successful stint working with several high-end developers in Chelsea, Kensington and Fulham, Ben made a successful transition into main contracting for high net worth private clients in Surrey. Inevitably, Ben was headhunted by a Central London based company to spearhead their move into developments in the increasingly popular areas of Islington and South East London.  The successful delivery of major development schemes kept Ben busy from 2014 until late 2017 when he joined up with long term friend and business associate Joe Garner to start New Place. Ben brings with him a wealth of construction knowledge, an eye for perfect delivery and a quest to constantly exceed client expectations. Duncan and Nick speak to Ben about; NewPlace Associates, time involved in closing deals, working closely with Croydon's Housing Association and his transition into the industry. The trio also speak about, growth in the industry and working in London vs. working outside of London. "We were fortunate enough to go from £6 million to £10 million in the year after I joined."

#DefenderCast Episode 1
   #DEFENDERCAST - Episode 1 - What is #defendercast I have finally done it. Here is Episode 1 of #defendercast  This is extremely rough. My editing skills have proven to be woeful but to be honest I am really happy to have recorded and produced my very first podcast. I sincerely hope you enjoy it.  This us unedited! Hopefuly (if you get passed the first 5 mins of waffle) you will hear that I start to improve and grow into my new role as podcast host. You will notice some very strange videos and pictures on this youtube version of the podcast. Im really just playing around with what I can and cant do moving forward. I appreciate your patience with this.  All feedback required asap as I am constantly trying to improve. Unfortunately the first 5 mins is a little poor and whilst I fumble around but then it starts to flow better.  DK
