SAFEagent is pleased to announce that our team will be attending the annual NALS Conference 2015 in London on the 12th November.
The event is always a valuable day to work on your business, not in it, with high quality speakers and networking, and a chance to meet industry stake-holders and policy makers.
You can find out more about the event >>> here.
John Midgley, Chair of SAFEagent, commented at the Conference last year:
“I think it’s great to find out from the horse’s mouth what is going on in the sector, whether that be hearing from DCLG or the Home Office.
It’s also about bringing the future forward to people.
If agents know about the changes coming down the pipe, they can start making contacts, start networking, asking the right questions and preparing policies and procedures to win business in the future.
The successful agent of the future will be the agents who are educated and informed and on the cutting edge of knowledge and business acquisition strategies.
It can also get very frustrating to constantly hear about the rogues, but we can all play our part in spreading positivity about ethical agents and our sector, and the NALS Conference is a great platform to do that”.
Here are the video highlights of last year’s event to give a flavour of the day:
We hope that many SAFEagents will take a day out to learn and grow by attending the Conference and we look forward to seeing you there!
