Clare Yates—what a great speaker, very engaging and made it light-hearted while gaining valuable tips.
I think the ''Baddies'' from Trading Standards, The Property Ombudsman and GDPR updates were the most informative speakers, and had a real enjoyable approach, keeping heavy material quite light. Also meeting lots of like-minded letting agents and property professionals was nice!
All speakers very good and those who had exhibitions up in the 'mingling room'. Propertymark are doing some really good work now and you can see this has been building for a few years, I especially appreciated the comms during the lockdowns and the panic of Covid. The constant communication and info was very good and really helped.
Well organised with excellent speakers and presentations. It was good to catch up with people in the industry too.
It was the first conference I have been too and took so much away from each speaker. Loved it, great meeting such passionate people.
The talks were not too long and there were good amount of breaks throughout the day. All were very interesting and engaging, especially The Trading Standards and TPO talks. It was interesting to understand what they are doing so we can improve our standards.
