Purple Conference & Expo 2017
May 31st 2017
Tuesday 23rd May saw the biggest and best Purple Conference & Expo to date! The event was held at the world-class Celtic Manor Resort in Newport, with over 225 people attending.
Purple’s MD, Les Brewin, opened the Conference and introduced sessions on Compliance, giving the members a Regulatory update, and Succession Planning & Equity Release. After lunch it was back into the conference room for a session led by our Group-owned Hamilton Bond focusing on the handling of a major property claim, and then Marsh Networks colleagues explaining the Lloyds & London Market Placement facility available to Purple’s members.
The Expo, with 30 insurer/provider partners supporting, was very lively throughout the afternoon with plenty of networking going on. Many of our insurer friends were commenting that ours is the best Expo they attend and gives them lots of new business opportunities.
Finally, the Conference concluded with the Keynote Address by David Williams, Technical Director at AXA. He gave an insight into a broad range of industry topics such as ‘Ogden’ and a look into the future with the rapid developments in driverless car technology…scary stuff!
The evening dinner was enjoyed by all with caricaturists providing some fun, although the highlight of the show being musical comic Kev Orkian who had everyone in stiches – particularly with his merciless micky-taking out of ‘Mr Les’ and ‘Mr Phil’! There was also a charity raffle which raised an impressive £2,000 for MIND, the mental health charity.
Another hugely successful Purple event!
