TPO announces its first ever conference 'Raise your Standards'
The Property Ombudsman (TPO) Scheme is delighted to officially announce its upcoming conference called 'Raise your Standards' which will take place on 14th October at the National Motorcycle Museum in Solihull.
Gerry Fitzjohn, Vice Chairman of TPO Ltd, said: “TPO Conference 2015 has been in planning for some months, and we can now inform member and non-member estate and letting agents about the event and its benefits. The aim behind its launch has been simple; to help raise standards and improve customer service within the property industry. TPO work in a field that is continuously developing with new legislation and regulation being introduced all the time, therefore education is key. This conference will provide attendees with 4 hours of CPD (Continuous Professional Development) through well-known industry guest speakers all offering their professional expertise on a range of relevant and interesting topics as well as practical workshops, including one run by the Ombudsman Christopher Hamer which will put individuals in the place of a TPO case officer.”
Some of the speakers confirmed for the event include; James Munro (Team Leader, National Trading Standards Estate Agency Team), Leon Livermore (Chief Executive, Trading Standards Institute), Kate Faulkner (Property Expert), Tim Wakelin (Property Industry Trainer, Speaker and Consultant) and Robert Bolwell (Head of Landlord and Tenant Department Dutton Gregory Solicitors), and there will be more announced in the coming weeks.
Christopher Hamer said: “With my term as Ombudsman coming to an end on November 30th, TPO Conference is going to be a good way to wrap it all up. My successor should be appointed by then so this will present a great opportunity for attendees to meet him or her.”
Registration will commence at 10am on the day and a full break down of the event’s schedule can be found on the TPO website.
