This week’s conference was yet another example of why Synergy provides the UK’s best financial franchise opportunity

Last Monday’s annual conference, held at the Heathrow/Windsor Marriott Hotel, was voted a tremendous success by everyone who attended.  Sponsored by a number of our funding partners: Together Money, Catalyst Finance, Merchant Money, Funding Circle, Asset Finance Solutions, also featuring presentations by Group directors and the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) plus a keynote presentation by the inimitable Geoff Ramm.  Every single delegate confirmed that they had thoroughly enjoyed the occasion.  Not only had they gained an extraordinary amount of valuable information that would undoubtedly be of enormous benefit to them in their future business development, but they also reported that it was yet another example of why, without any question, Synergy provides the UK’s best financial franchise opportunity.

The conference was opened by AFS Group Managing Director, Nick Simpson, in his own unique style before Commercial Director, Paul Goodman presented his thoughts on today’s broker market and gave his opinion on the current funding situation.

This was then followed by an excellent presentation delivered by Adam Guttridge from the FSB who officially launched Synergy’s new association with the FSB that provides all our franchisees with a new enhanced level of support.  It is a move that was enthusiastically received by everyone in attendance and is yet another example and further proof of why we provide what has been frequently described as the best financial franchise opportunity there is.

After a networking lunch, during which delegates took the opportunity to meet, mingle and reconnect with colleagues old and new, our keynote speaker, Geoff Ramm took to the stage.

Geoff brought his own brand of engaging humour and insightful advice to the room and his ‘Celebrity Service’ presentation described just how easy it is for everyone to improve their customer service skills in order to develop their own business prospects and increase their profitability.

Everyone present agreed that Geoff’s at times laugh out loud presentation was not only wonderfully entertaining but its underlying message was truly inspiring.

Following the closure of the conference itself we then all moved on to Windsor Racecourse where everyone enjoyed the evening’s race meeting.  No doubt the highlight was the evening’s race for two-year olds that had been sponsored by Synergy Commercial Finance and couldn’t have been more appropriate to mark the occasion of our successful annual conference.

Some people showed a profit on the evening’s races, while others disappointingly did not.  Yet everyone agreed that the events of the day and the fun that was had at the races meant that each and every one of us were winners all the way.
