Purple Conference 2018 - the best yet!


April 23rd 2018

 

On Tuesday 17th April, we held our biggest ever Conference and Expo to date, with nearly 250 people attending... We believe it may be the biggest network event ever!

As in previous years, the annual event was at the magnificent Celtic Manor Resort in Newport. Our MD, Les Brewin opened the conference and introduced sessions from various speakers including; The World of SME, from Dave Martin, Allianz Director. An update from Steve White, CEO of BIBA. And a first class regulatory update from Jim Dart, Dart Compliance.

The Expo, supported by 34 insurers and provider partners, had a real buzz with plenty of business networking going on. Many of our insurers commented that it was the best conference they have attended and had given them lots of new business opportunities.

The conference concluded with a view on the UK economy post-Brexit, from BBC and SKY News Economist Louise Cooper. This was followed by dinner, opened by Jelf CEO Phil Barton and then hilarious evening entertainment from ‘The Raymond & Mr Timpkins Review’. Nothing like a good laugh to end another hugely successful Purple event.
