“Many new links established and trade deals set up”
Hisham Mahmoud, chairman of Bright, said: ”With our final workshop in Poole before we ended our 2018 programme of events our numbers of independent agents attending has been very high and we have had many new links established and trade deals set up.”
“Our independent colleagues have expressed great appreciation for the 14 workshops we have arranged around the UK in the past year and we have received requests to visit new locations in 2019,” he added.
Southampton was followed by Poole in early October with almost 70 agents attending both events. See www.brightconsortia.com for details of the events planned for 2019 and bookings.
