I thought it was absolutely fantastic, it is clear a great deal of thought went into the programme and it flowed very well and was a perfect mix of topic and style. Normally when I attend similar events I am clock watching. On this occasion the time flew. Every speaker was excellent and every topic interesting. Special shout out to Dr Andy Cope!
The Propertymark Conference is the hub of all things related to our industry, and I really value the opportunity to hear topflight speakers and get the know-how. I also appreciate the exhibition, which allows us to explore all the industry's latest products and services to support and provide a competitive edge to our businesses.
An inspirational and interesting selection of speakers that make you want to action changes across all areas of your life instantly.
Andy Cope was unbelievably good—so inspirational and gave plenty of things to think about. I have shared many of his insights with friends and colleagues since and it has been brilliant.
I was particularly interested in seeing the products in person that we keep getting phone calls about and it has resulted in me instructing a firm I wanted to learn more about. It was good to hear other peoples’ opinions on what has worked and where they see the future of interaction is with potential clients. And of course meeting Phil Spencer was a highlight of the event.
I thoroughly enjoyed this year’s National Conference. Very imformative, brilliant speakers, I loved the way that the marketing masterclass speakers bounced off each other and that they had different opinions too.
The excellent and varied speakers are a brilliant way of keeping up to date. I do a bit of Social Media marketing but I came away with a much clearer idea of what I need to be doing. Andy Cope stole the show!
