The Annual Conference
 
This year's feedback from agents has confirmed that this has been our best conference yet. The day itself was a huge success, David and the Park Lane team looked back on the previous year, reviewing the growth of the network, the fantastic PR success the Media Centre has achieved and all the marketing materials created. Additionally, the strategy for 2017 was revealed, looking at marketing and advertising for the year, including print, digital and the return of the TV campaign.
 
We were also joined by three fantastic key note speakers, including Tony Morris, Managing Director of the Sales Doctor, who discussed what takes you from being exceptional to World Class. It's not simply about what you know, but how you implement your knowledge to give the customer the best experience. Graeme Leach, CEO and Chief Economist of macroeconomic, spoke about economics and what we can predict for the economy and housing market this year, potentially a growth in the dollar, the Chinese economy weakening and more foreign investment in the UK property market. Lastly Linda Moir, Director of In-Flight services for Virgin Atlantic and Head of the 2012 Olympic Game Makers, spoke about her experiences of giving outstanding customer service and what great impact this has for the brand.
 
From the network we had three 10 minute Quickfire rounds from Terry Robinson on generating more market appraisals, Jonathan Handford on the benefit of using case studies and Gavin Human on raising fees.
