Countrywide Surveying Services unveils first virtual annual conference

5 January 2021 | General

Countrywide Surveying Services is holding its first ever virtual annual conference from the 5th to the 8th January.

The conference, which typically takes place in Birmingham, is now a four-day virtual event, with over 500 confirmed attendees.

Matthew Cumber, managing director of Countrywide Surveying Services, said: “Technology has been the great facilitator throughout these challenging times and this is evident in the fact that we are on the cusp of holding our first ever virtual annual conference.

“The task of turning this into a virtual event has been far from simple. The logistics have been quite mind blowing at times and we’re not alone is facing such issues.

“However, it’s vital for a company of our size and scale to ensure that we interact as best we can with our people and keep them fully informed about how we have performed, what we could be doing better and our vision for the future.

“This is what our annual conference is all about, and it also provides us with the opportunity to commend key performers and show our gratitude for the dedication shown across all areas of the business.”

The conference will be kicked off with a review of the year from managing director Matthew Cumber, while there will be a variety of customer insights from lender clients.

Afternoon sessions will focus on CPD recorded content, which will include a wellness programme alongside views from the market and a focus on cladding from RICS.

In addition, social events will also take place, with Countrywide encouraging family members to join in. These involve a virtual wine and gin reception plus a Zoom call with chef Michel Roux Jr and English rugby legend Lawrence Dallaglio.
