Nicky Stevenson on stage

Fine & Country held its annual conference and awards last Friday at The Brewery in London. The event was attended by many of the brand’s UK based agents, as well as those based in locations further afield, such France, Cyprus and Portugal.

Titled ‘Dare to be Iconic’, the conference focused on the year ahead and the opportunities agents have to increase transactions in what remains a challenging market.

The conference featured a number of speakers and industry experts, including keynote speaker David Abbott, who focussed on pricing strategies. Abbott’s session titled ‘Dare to be Expensive: How to Price your Platypus’ offered insights into driving revenue growth through effective pricing strategies.

Other notable presentations included discussions on the integration of AI in businesses by Ben Sellers, co-founder of Starberry, and a success story shared by Jonathan Handford and Vanessa Bradford from Fine & Country Droitwich Spa, who achieved notable growth in their market. International speakers such as Bruce Hawker and Zoie Hawker from Fine & Country Algarve provided insights into the nuances of local markets, enriching the conference with diverse perspectives from around the world.

The highlight of the event was the Awards Gala, which recognised outstanding achievements by licensees and associates within the Fine & Country network. Winners were acknowledged across various categories, including Marketing and Exposure, Property Presentation, Customer Service, and more.

Nicky Stevenson, managing director of Fine & Country, commented: “The Fine & Country Conference and Awards Gala serves as a focal point for our global network of delegates, providing unparalleled opportunities for networking, learning, and celebration.”

“While the past year has had its share of hurdles, many within the network have risen above the challenges faced and managed to achieve some remarkable results,” she added. “Our award gala is a celebration of their success and an opportunity to acknowledge their efforts.”
