About the speakers:
Caroline Marsh, Franchise Partner, Platinum Partners Group of Companies
Caroline Marsh is a highly successful buy-to-let property investor, who was chosen to appear C4’s ‘The Secret Millionaire’ in September 2008. Thanks to the highly cash-positive portfolio she had built – and continues to expand – as a Platinum Property Partners (PPP) franchise partner, together with her natural determination, resilience, generosity, capability and integrity, she was able to make a real difference to two projects in Toxteth, Liverpool. The experience made Caroline realise that there must be similar people in need of support, inspiration and encouragement in her home town of Swindon, and over the past two years since she filmed for C4, she has been working with the Mayor of Swindon, her local MP and local businesses to make a difference. She has been giving talks and holding coaching sessions and encouraging businesses to sponsor and support young people in enterprise projects. Since the programme aired, Caroline has become well-respected as an inspirational and motivational speaker, and her engagements have ranged from speaking to MPs and businesspeople at Westminster, to being part of a franchisee panel for visitors at the British and International Franchise Exhibition.
