Property Managers give ‘Back to School’ conferences top marks

‘Back to School’ conferences spearheaded by award-winning PM Legal Services to raise industry standards have scored highly with property managers.

PM Legal Services, a division of Keebles, hosted and led the events in Yorkshire and London following the success of two sell-out best practice conferences earlier this year.
Almost 400 property managers and industry professionals have attended the four free of charge sessions featuring high-profile speakers.

Aligned with the ‘Back to School’ theme, presenters delivered lessons on subjects including English language, history and detention – equipping attendees with valuable sector insights and tips.

Experts included PM Legal Services head, Cassandra Zanelli, a recognised residential leasehold expert, Andrew Bulmer, CEO of Institute of Residential Property Management and Paul Robertson, MD of Midway Insurance Services Ltd.

Cassandra said: “Property managers gave excellent feedback and found the conferences invaluable. There is a wider movement to boost sector standards through education and knowledge building and the Government is currently examining minimum entry requirements of property managers.

“As a firm at the forefront of best practice and committed to sharing knowledge, our conferences dovetail perfectly with this goal to deliver enhanced qualifications and training.”

Richard Smith, Keebles’ head of commercial property, said: “The high level of attendance and response to the events reinforce PM Legal Services’ instrumental role in the ongoing drive to further elevate standards.”

Delegates were invited to donate to PM Legal Services’ nominated charity, YMCA Training. Plans are in the pipeline for the firm to hold additional London and Northern conferences in 2019.
