KBSA AGM National Meeting and Awards a great success
There was standing room only at the KBSA AGM, which was held at the Billesley Manor Hotel in Warwickshire earlier this month. Almost 90 retail and corporate members attended the AGM which was followed by the national meeting and a dinner in the evening, which included the presentation of the KBSA Designer Awards.
"We are delighted that this year's event was so well attended and even more pleased with the positive feedback we have received afterwards," says KBSA CEO Graham Ball.
"Our theme for this event was Survive & Prosper and all three external speakers covered a different element. Robert Woods from the Bank of England provided some interesting statistics and forecasts on the economy. His presentation illustrated the fascinating complexities of forecasting in today's markets, and highlighted the many and varying influences that are relevant when trying to look ahead.
"Neil Moss from Skillsmart Retail talked about upskilling and mentoring and the services available from Skillsmart Retail. He included the results of a recent survey into delivering customer service and details of the Retail Business Mentor service.
"The final speaker - award winning entrepreneur and business mentor, Nigel Botterill, delivered a passionate and thought-provoking presentation about using digital marketing to grow a business, that was both informative and highly entertaining. He also presented details of his Entrepreneur's Circle that supports people running their own businesses with coaching, mentoring and teaching.
"We are grateful to our sponsors of the awards dinner: Bosch, Glen Dimplex, Hoover Candy, Hotpoint, JJO, NEFF, Rangemaster, Whirlpool and QANW, as their support contributed to the overall success of the evening."
