Last Friday saw the highlight of the year for us at Hunters as we hosted our annual national conference at York racecourse. With 300 of our franchise partners and group colleagues in attendance, it truly was a spectacular day.
Hosted by the BBC’s Declan Curry the audience were updated on the future of Hunters by our chairman, Kevin Hollinrake including the big unveil of our recent purchase of the domain site hunters.com and our intention to float in the summer. My colleagues Glynis Frew and Martin Robinson gave a presentation on leadership, whilst Pernilla Tweddle (head of marketing) gave an update on our national TV campaign and our new brand promise “here to get you there”.
It was then the turn of our key speaker for the event to take the stage and you could have heard a pin drop as Falklands hero Simon Weston gave an inspiring speech on how personal strength and determination and triumph over adversity. There was many a teary eye in the room.
It was then time to celebrate the successes of 2014 as we announced our winners for our forthcoming trip to Cape Town:
