Liz Syms, pictured, Connect for Intermediaries CEO, said:

“Our conference this year forms part of our 20th anniversary celebrations.  We asked ourselves ‘do brokers understand all their criteria and niches?’ And, ‘what help do brokers need to be more successful?’

“We have worked hard with our partners to give brokers attending the conference as much valuable information and help as possible.  So not only will they hear from a range of industry spokespeople, but there will also be practical sessions, and of course our keynote speaker, to help them towards even more successful businesses. Those attending the conference will also receive a complimentary signed copy of Mark Rhodes’ book ‘Think Your Way to Success’.

“We guarantee after this event they will be able to do more deals than they thought possible.”

“The conference is booking up well but there are still some spaces available for anyone interested.  And, as Connect is celebrating being 20 years old there will be a few celebratory surprises in store.”
