Sharing Success: The Guild Conference and Awards celebrate Member achievements

The QEII Centre in Westminster, London, was abuzz with excitement on Friday, 22 March 2024, as The Guild of Property Professionals hosted its highly anticipated annual Guild Conference and Awards. Under the theme ‘Sharing Success,’ the full-day conference brought together innovative and passionate Guild Members alongside industry pioneers for an event exclusive to The Guild’s network.

Led by Iain McKenzie, CEO of The Guild of Property Professionals, the conference aimed to champion industry successes both within and outside the network. Esteemed speakers included industry figure Peter Rollings, former Foxtons boss and owner of Marsh & Parsons, who shared insights into achieving higher fees. CEO and Founder of Agent Rainmaker, Sally Lawson, delved into additional revenue streams within the lettings side of the business. Other sessions included panel discussions which explored the impact of AI on the property sector, providing attendees with valuable perspectives on industry trends and innovation.

Highlighting the accomplishments of Guild Members throughout 2023, despite market challenges, Kris McLean, Managing Director of The Guild of Property Professionals, underscored the importance of recognising and honouring agents who have gone above and beyond for their clients and the industry. The presentation of the Guild Awards during the afternoon session served as a testament to these achievements.

tlyfe the tenant App gets huge marketing boost from national team tour from the Openbrix team

As many will know tlyfe, powered by OpenBrix, is the UK’s most innovative tenant lifecycle app, taking the stress out of the move in process and helping to manage the entire lifecycle of your tenancy. Perhaps what is not so well known is the huge amount of users now downloading the App from the App Store or Google Play.

To help reinforce the value of the service, Adam Pigott CEO of tlyfe (Parent company Openbrix) has with his team been on a whistlestop tour around the nation getting even wider knowledge of what the App can do. Just last week most of the tlyfe team were in Exeter at the Propertymark regional conference, telling a packed audience the benefits and features of the App.

And three weeks ago, resplendent in his distinctive orange Tango corporate tylfe polo shirt, Adam was up on stage in front of another engaged Propertymark audience in Murryfield Scotland. Again getting the message that tech savvy tenants love the UX of the App, but more importantly it helps all stakeholders as it proves the validity of a prospective tenant – before a viewing is booked on a rental property. A big win for the landlord/letting agent and it gets the prospective tenant to the front of the queue.

Geovation Spring showcase – why it is important that you come and support the founders

A big opportunity to get up close and personal with some brillaint new services, some of which may well be of value or suitable for follow on investment.

The event takes place on the evening of Wednesday the 17th of April, at Sutton Yard, London EC1V 7EN, please get it booked into your diary today.

As ever the Geovation program has supported and found the very best in talent and innovation and it will be a great evening to mix and network with new and old freinds as well of course with the founders, also for anyone thinking about getting onboard with Geovation as a growth partner to their ambitions, it is a great night to explore what that might look like.

Over the past seven years I have been involved with and been an advocate for nearly forty different startup accelerators, scaleups and other programs that help founders on what is often a hard and relentless journey from hopefully mvp to exit.

The value of having organisations like Geovation can not be stated enough and aside from the funding and the use of data, the community and of course all the team involved and the mentors really does cut years off the runway to success. Please join in and support these founders as they now start the nexy stage of there journey.
