Ipswich-based Mr Howard, who has worked in the property sector all his life with considerable success is sharing his knowledge and expertise in a series of seminars for the business community and would-be investors.

The Winerack development is taking shape now at Ipswich Waterfront with the first apartments close to being completed. The whole project (then called Regatta Quay), stalled a decade ago with the banking crisis and the recession that followed.

The skeletal building became a symbol of the recession until John Howard stepped in and put together a rescue project, with the support of Government funding.

John Howard has had a career of property development in East Anglia and across the UK.
