What a day last Friday was, as over 300 of our network colleagues, over 40 sponsors and 2 guest speakers joined us for our national conference and awards ceremony.
This is always an annual highlight for me and my team, it’s a chance to get our network together to learn, look forward and celebrate past successes. The feedback from this years conference (which was held at the fantastic York Racecourse) was simply exceptional and has now been described as “simply the best conference yet!”. We had a number of superb presentations all designed to help our network grow and preform at the highest level. The theme for this year was PEOPLE, PURPOSE & PASSION and each of the presentations were able to help in all key areas of our business from sales to lettings, from cost management to the latest marketing initiatives that are coming the way of our branch network.
Our 2 guest speakers were Nigel Wray – businessman, entrepreneur, chairman of Saracens and gentleman, and Frank Gardiner – BBC news correspondent who was seriously injured whilst reporting in Saudi Arabia, what an amazing story and an amazing man.
Following champagne and canapes, came the part of the day that was my particular highlight, our national awards. I was given the honour to host these this year (and yes that is a sparkling red jacket!) and I was thrilled to be able to announce (alongside our fantastic sponsors) those who will be joining me and the rest of the senior team to an amazing trip to Val D’Isere.
