UK Relocation Agent Network Celebrates 25th National Conference and Awards
Posted by: Richard Tucker, Vice President, Supply Chain Management
Some of the UK’s top estate agents, as members of Relocation Agent Network, traveled to London last week to attend the 25th National Conference and Awards, which I’m delighted to say was a resounding success!
This is a must-attend event for our members, who heard from a carefully selected line up of keynote speakers including learning and development guru, Malcolm Smith, international corporate speaker, David Meade, and mathematician and ex-funds manager, Darren Shirlaw. The day also included a large trade exhibition of some of the industry’s leading suppliers.
After its successful introduction last year, the conference featured speed sharing roundtables and workshops, which gave delegates the opportunity to hear about the industry topics that matter most to them and their businesses. From choosing the best form of communication for customers, to making the perfect sales call, each roundtable was hosted by an expert in their field who shared the latest innovations and best practices.
To really ensure the event was as interactive as possible, delegates also had access to our exclusive conference app. It allowed users to network with one another in the lead up to the event, as well as take part in live polling and Q&A sessions on the day.
And the Winner is...
The Conference, held at London’s Park Plaza Riverbank Hotel on Friday 23 November, ended with our evening Awards Dinner hosted by UK comedian and television presenter, Katherine Ryan. Marking our 25th anniversary, it was a fantastic night of celebration, which saw 27 award winners announced, including our most coveted accolade, the Relocation Agent Network 2018 Agent of the Year. The winner of this top prize, awarded to the estate agent who has most excelled in leading the field of estate agency and network standards, is Richard James from Northamptonshire. Huge congratulations to the Richard James team and to all of our other award winners.
Each member of Relocation Agent Network is invited to join, following extensive checks, with just one estate agent in any given area selected to join. This means that Cartus can be confident that every one of our Relocation Agent Network members really is the 'Local Expert' in their area, and continues to provide the highest customer service to our UK clients and their international assignees.
When we launched Relocation Agent Network back in 1994, our vision was to create a network of local experts across the UK who would guide Cartus assignees and their relocating families through the home buying and selling process. And today, that local expert ethos remains at the heart of the Network. Find out more about Relocation Agent Network.
