Countrywide Surveying Services to hold virtual conference
Countrywide Surveying Services is set to hold its first virtual annual conference.
The Countrywide Surveyors 2021 Annual Conference will take place from 5 to 8 January.
As a result of restrictions caused by coronavirus the conference, which is usually held in Birmingham, will now be in the form of a four-day virtual event with over 500 confirmed attendees.
The livestream will begin with a review of 2020 from Matthew Cumber, managing director of Countrywide Surveying Services.
Afternoon sessions will take place over the course of the four days focusing on CPD recorded content, which will include a wellness programme alongside views from the market and a focus on cladding from RICS.
Social events will also take place; these involve a virtual wine and gin reception plus a Zoom call with renowned chef Michel Roux Jr and English rugby legend Lawrence Dallaglio.
Cumber 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.”
