QU & ARK is right relevant and timely, how here and now depends on me, you and us all but the time is now. Keeping it simple stupid, the previous World as we knew it fundamentally failed to maintain our hopes, faith & trust by inefficiently and ineffectively mismanaging our risk. Whilst not guaranteeing our sustainable futures via longevity, balance and equilibrium. This skillful art eludes most people from many walks of life. It is this foresighted ability to balance and glide steadily through the ups and downs, the peaks and troughs, the highs the lows that those wise and fully centered within themselves and connected to others ultimately master. Yet only few perfect this art and canny knack in their lifetime. Perhaps the ultimate craft and worthy definition of an allocentric guilds man and true scholarship is sharing those rewards socially.
Shrewdness careful actions and dealings via clever and cautious endeavours and pursuits in business is a lesson learned by us all. Probably the most expensive lesson in the University of Life, there is no tuition fee in my mind that would be too costly or invaluable in mastering this undoubted and remarkable feat, plus ability. A natural sixth sense perhaps? or a nose for danger even a whiff or scent in the air? It comes with the terrain and territory, for the landscape has changed quite dramatically. The hunter gatherer must have their whits about them at all times and be alert to the ever changing climate. Irrespective it would seem, whether ethical or allocentric via your "Mission Statement," the eco-social values matter not. As the prize you ultimately pursue invariably diminishes others perceived prizes of others.
Are you in or are you out? In for change and to make changes, up for difference? via creating something different! The QU & ARK pledge raising process has been devised to gain "Trust" to build ethical bridges to minimize risk, to be void of an issue or concern via any and all perspective pledge holders. It is not only open, honest and frank but transparent, most of all authentic! Consider the alternatives, property and real estate development involves speculative risk, a punt. An off plan bet or gamble, even hedge that values will increase, the lure and enticement is that values increase via your normally discounted incentive for being an early adopter. However it is normally heavily wavered in favour of the developer, even the financier or financial institution that leverages your pre-sale against debt but via an asset they control. Invariably the only title and deed you have are normally glossy pictures and a reservation receipt. Timing in that process is everything!
There is no variables via the infinite benefits associated with early adopters of QU & ARK. Firstly your pledge is retractable, revocable and strictly private and confidential. Yes we want you to picture changing the 21st century built environment paradigms but as we say at QU & ARK we're not in the risk business but the assurity business. Always wavered and in favour and the best interests of our pledge holders, via our mode of operation. The privacy aspect is perhaps is its only downfall, as initial early adopters wish for discretion. Quite rightly so, remaining quite discrete about their wealth perhaps and I suspect their initial involvement and participation. Until they are consoled and comforted with the primary target of the pitch and sell, collectively attaining in unison the targeted and founding pledge holder subscription level and ceiling. Of which they are all fully versed and coherent with the dynamics and quantum financial engineering that takes place thereafter. Eliminating risk, whilst transferring across to a managed risk process.
We've all heard the encouraging and enthusiastic sound bites emulated via Bankers, alternative and varied income streams but you rarely individually share the rewards of alternative and varied asset classes, technologies and commodities. For your money and funds are utilized to acquire assets or interests which they control, our simplicity is our sophistication. Your pledges are used to acquire immediate and future anticipated bricks, mortar and land parcels. All of which are brownfield sites, never greenbelt initiatives. Whilst being connected with disruptive technologies that we own or jointly co own. That are intertwined with commodities, therefore offering alternative asset classes, disruptive technologies and commodities via shared ownership, risk verses reward but mutual and co ownership. With the future anticipation of varied and alternative income streams.
It is for the reader to contemplate and consider, plus evaluate their own risk but if we do not act together to alter and change the dynamic in favour of the real risk takers which are the people pledging their money. Then sadly nothing will change and no difference will be made. QU & ARK can quite happily march on via its virtual office and via its virtual domain with virtually zero operating cost. However as a virtual Eco-Socially Responsible Allocentric Brand its in-flows of cash via pledges is already projected at £29M. This may rise and yes it may fall but be comforted and at ease with the fact that whilst most other businesses turnover and income streams have in some horrific cases fallen off the edge of a cliff and diminished by as much as 50% their operating costs have remained the same. I believe the New World and New Bigger Picture will be dominated by adopters of the softly, softly, gently, gently prudent, cautious and conservative approach but ultimately shared risks and rewards. We call them pledge holders, some call them stakeholders, other shareholders but we maintain the value and the principle of those whom we serve.
There's always a cost and there's always a risk but rewards should be shared. It is how we mutually share these returns that ultimately determines our future successes, sustainability and longevity via any "Brand." QU & ARK are solving the puzzle to make the World a greener place and have all the ethical pieces to solve the jigsaw. Perhaps leaders and not followers in this order of necessary and vital change. QU & ARK created their own moral compass.
Documentary "The Spirit of Business & The Values of Principles"
Aim to be Michael Moore of Scotland, not mythological, true to myself, and my beliefs for a very successful and progressive Scotland via unique innovation, ideas, concepts and visions, that will continue sustainable lasting and meaningful legacies for Scotland! Through macro and micro initiative and "Method of Operating" being ignored or traceable, organic locally sourced incentives being wasted. We will be exploring Banking, Finance irregularities, and catastrophic failures, plus continual self centred preservation monopolies. Through to humongous calamities by bureaucrats, politicians via continual errors in judgment, detrimental to our wealth and well-being. Plus business and planning processes and the inconsistencies via a multitude of planning and business applications that have no consistent logic or coherent pattern? Scholars and Academics, Historians, Physicists, Psychiatrists through to various Professionals from different specialist areas and fields and Business People, plus ordinary folk will be involved in the process and partake via interviews. Wishing to contribute towards making a meaningful difference, evoking, plus proving significant change for the better of us all.

Thinking out of the box
Therefore I have formed a Co-operative/Consortium like motive operandi applying inherent value and intrinsic value towards it current pledgeholders, future shareholders and anticipated investors. Beyond the mere principle value of itself and Co-operative/Consortium Partners, who share the same values and principles towards executing, performing and delivering overwhelming and unconditional current pledgeholders value, future shareholders and anticipated investors value and returns, beyond mere monetary values and principles but more importantly Ecological and Environmental dividends and returns. Towards making a substantial and prolific difference, through evoking, plus provoking necessary change in attitude, behaviour, culture towards the ecology, environment and the built environment.

Other Local Heroes
Extremely admirable the protest and statement Doctor David Kennedy made. I would concur that Donald Trump is by no means an exemplar or shinning idealogy for students to admire or follow.
