Steve McKnight's topic for the night is ‘From Survival to Significance - How to Create and Leave a Lasting Legacy’. After beginning in a career in accounting, in 1999 Steve began investing in real estate and pioneered new strategies and techniques that allowed him to acquire hundreds of properties, achieving financial freedom by age 32. His first book, ‘From 0 to 130 Properties in 3.5 Years’, has sold more than 200,000 copies and is a number 1 best-seller. In 2003 Steve established a private foundation to empower disadvantaged children, donating all his book royalties, amounting to well over 1 million dollars to this foundation. He has spoken around the world and has helped millions of people become better investors. In 2018 Steve began his most ambitious project yet, renovating the earth by planting 185,000 trees as part of Gippsland’s largest ever reforestation program.
