Don will also interview André Jordan, the veteran international developer behind successful real estate projects in the United States of America, Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay, France and Portugal, where he founded Quinta do Lago in the 1970s and more recently Belas Clube de Campo, Portugal – and discover the secrets of his success.
